      I bought a used system this spring and my temps seem higher than they should. Especially my GPU temp.

      CPU is the AMD Ryzen 2600 stock cooler
      GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Duke

      At idle my temps are 46c for the CPU and 60c for the GPU

      the GPU fans are off for the most part but spin up for 30 seconds and the temp drops to 57c. and does this periodically.

      When gaming the GPU fans ramp up to about 70% and the temp is maintained at around 80c.

      Does that seem out of norm at all?

      Have you cleaned the fans?

      Yup. I cleaned it when I got it home.

      I'd say normal for a stock CPU setup.

      Good to know about the CPU. I created a custom GPU fan curve that idles the fans at 600rpms to keep the idle temps at 48c. I ran a benchmark and the temps were a few degrees cooler as well. So I feel a little better.

      As long as it isn't thermal throttling the CPU or GPU under load, it should be fine (there have been some temp sensor bugs that show errant temps).
      Funny how the early Bulldozer CPUs (like FX-8150) were called hot space heaters but they really weren't that bad by modern CPU standards. They were power hungry for their performance tho.
      That seems like an eternity since AMD was using those, but it really up to just before 1st gen Ryzen.

      Some other thoughts.
      Re-apply the thermal paste on CPU.
      Post the case and fan setup.
      You need case fans pointed and placed so air flows freely and across the things that need to be cooled (this is also what cable-management is supposedly for, tho it seems more about style).
      Possibly upgrade to some Noctua case fans.
