i7 4770k temperatures

Hey guys, so just have a small concern about my cpu. Just built this new pc a week ago and the cooler I use is a corsair h75, the temperatures I get are great even under load I barely pass 65c using prime 95 or intel burn test. My concern is when its on idle or I am doing anything the temperatures are constantly changing, quickly, up and down very rapidly. Never to a dangerous level buy they change so often. For example in idle Im around 25c per core but itll go up to 26c 27c 28c 29c 30c and back down and up...etc and ideas?

Are you using software or hardware to measure?

Those software tools tend to bounce around a lot. Given the dynamic speed changes, and how Windows isn't that idle, I fear you are fretting.

About those temps, I wouldn't be concerned....

my i7 860 cores all run 30 or below in general use and 70 or so on Prime 95 using Xigmatek air cooling.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
