Temps Flunctuate...Based on Usage?
I just installed Arctic Silver 5, but I noticed this ever since I got back from winter break. For some reason, my CPU temps are about 39-40C when I use the PC (browsing, etc). However, when I idle completely, and I turn my monitor off, the temperature of my CPU shoots up to 48C, which is dangerously high for idle IMO.
