CPU temperature

Level 7
A strange CPU behavior has appeared yesterday.
No matter, what I do, it rapidly heats up, and cools down.

In idle it's 30c and stable.
E.g I lauch browser - temp goes up to 50 or even more. (monitoring in aida64 and mobo onboard display), after the browser has loaded (1-2sec) the CPU goes back to 30c very fast. CPU fan rpm goes up and down, while the CPU temp jumps.

I click any link, open any document/programm (heavier than notepad or paint) and cpu temp jumps 30-55 and back.
In BIOS the fan is set to quiete mode.

CPU cooler attached well. (I think the temp wouldn't be 30 in idle if the cooler was loose).

Does anyone have any ideas?

And what is the reasone NOT to use this feature?

Well, adaptive mode was introduced with the Maximus VI series mothebroards, it's a power saving feature that lets your cpu sit cool and quiet while at idle.

The only drawback is sometimes adaptive mode will draw a little more voltage under load but you can counter it with an offset.

Ok, understood.

Now my idle temp is 35c, if I dicede, that it should be brought down - i'll use adaptive mode.

Summer is comming.
