    i7 7700k hotter idle temperatures with corsair h100i v2

      Hello,

      I recently bought a core i7 7700k. At first i was using it with a CM hyper T4 cooling with an extra fan installed for better cooling. However, i noticed really high idle temps varying from 45-60 C and the CPU was not even overclocked. I know that this chip is supposedly hot but in every thread i read idle temps were lower than 35C. So i decided to upgrade my cooling and bought a corsair h100i v2 cooler expecting a lot of improvement. Yet almost nothing changed idle temps are around 50-55 (the chip isn't oc'ed) . My question is is my chip faulty or it is in some way normal, even though it sounds unacceptable to have idle temps so high.
      Thank you in advance.
