2600x idling between 45-50 Celsius, with voltage at 1.42. Is this normal, or is something wrong?

I just built a new computer including the 2600x. I'm experiencing temps up to 60 Celsius just on idle with voltage sometimes jumping to 1.47. I'm wondering if this is normal or if I should look into fixing some settings or something. I changed my cpu and case fans to run faster in the bios, but other than that everything is stock. Any help is very much appreciated.

Disable AMD Turbo Technology in Bios/UEFI settings .

and i prefer maybe set the fans to auto Level 5 45/50 °C is enough

Note : if you set your energy profile in Windows to perfomance. Windows Always keep the CPU running at highest clock even in IDLE.

yinliner, assuming your are reading the correct temperature, you are fine!  How are you measuring?

Your processor specifications:

You should have the AMD Chip Set drivers installed, DLed from the AMD Support website.  Along with the drivers come the AMD Ryzen™ Balance power plan and that is what you should be running.  You do not need to mess with any BIOS/UEFI settings as long as temperatures are below 85-90C.  Enjoy, John.
