    I really don't know where you got that from. A quick google shows from low thirties up to high 40's for most people on idle with easy ways to lower it if you want with fan curves/profiles or different cooling solutions

    Re: Noctua says its passive CPU cooler is "coming very soon"

    Linustechtips and a few other sites where people are having idle temps at around 50 degrees. People saying its about the average. I am sure if I looked harder I could find lower temps or higher temps depending on how I wanted my answer to come out.

    And in regards to my reply to another member they were saying if it idles at 50 degrees the person they were replying to had done something wrong or has a rubbish cooler. Neither was correct. And seems an average temp even if on the higher side of average, bit like high 40's.

    Still perfectly acceptable depending on your settings though, and if you wanted to you could reduce it. It's a 12c/24t cpu with a rated tdp of 105 watts. Intels equivalent would use a load more power. I really can't see the issue

    My 3800x is around 45 to 50 with a dark rock pro 4 with the fan at 682rpm. I have set the ramp so everything is fairly slow and goes up steeply at 65 degrees+

    That's way bigger than my puny Hyper 212X, i was going to run the stock cooler while i waited for Noctua to update their 140mm fans but the stock cooler was doing my head in.

    I had stock before, wanted to keep it for the Prism Mirage effect But in the end it wasn't really doing the best job and the Dark Rock is a lot lot quieter

    It's not like 50c is doing any damage to your chip, what's the tolerance on them, over 90 right?

    Yes its something like 90 degrees

    Clearly a niche cooler for the low wattage CPU's.
    If your 5900x IDLES at 50c, you're doing something wrong or have a completely garbage cooler on it.
    I've got a Noctua D15 with TG Kryonaut. Ended up re-greasing it thrice as thought got it wrong the first two times before reading on reddit that most people are getting 50C on idle, bit lower with AIO's.

    Ended up using Clocktuner to find me the perfect undervolt so now sits around 40C at 1.25v 3.9Ghz.

    I think it's something like 95c but I've read, and i don't know how true it is as AMD isn't great in publishing such numbers, I've read they start reducing boost clocks the further past 70c they go.

    Re: Noctua says its passive CPU cooler is "coming very soon"

    Just to chip in I also idle at 50c with a 3700X. Fans on absolute lowest (~400rpm). Don't see the point in having fan noise just to cool an idle CPU, especially as when it's idle is when you tend to not have any other sound coming out so it's the most noticeable.

    Re: Noctua says its passive CPU cooler is "coming very soon"

    I idle at 28-35C on 3900x depending on room temp, rising to 40C if the machines been left on for hours at a stretch.

    There are so many variables between individual situations, though - Build components, fan choice, behaviour of said fans (as it's usually the airflow making noise, not the fan), personal perception of noise, yadda yadda, not to mention any other people that must be considered.

    My PC is pretty quiet. According to my Andy sound meter app, it's 28dB. You can sit within 2' of it and read a book quite happily... yet I can still hear it from downstairs through two closed doors and, on a quiet night, I can even hear it from outside.

    I certainly can't go fanless with this rig, but it's great to have that option for others.
