I take it you have an air conditioner then? Your idling temp cannot be less than your ambient temp, it’s against the 2nd law of thermodynamics :) Even if the temp is 42c outside, that would make your house in the high 30s, and ambient temp is always at least 4 degrees less than your idling temp, in my case it's 5 degrees. So my idling temp is 29c because I run my aircon at 24c. It gets cold if I run my aircon lower than that lol since my room is always closed when it's on.

Glad to hear you got sorted! I presume thats at stock settings?
