Thought so - I have a 1700 myself, temps on auto seemed ok with the Wraith on mine (28-30 idle). Now that my AM4 bracket finally arrived, I mounted the Kraken X62 and idle temps dropped to 18 (so ~5 below ambient) - obviously wrong. So I disabled the Skew and temps are more realistic now. You need to absorb the fact that the 1700 is rated at 65W because of the 3200MHz all core boost, once you overclock to the 3.9-4GHz range, it's an oven.
