R7 3700X Temps Anomaly ?

Hi, I'm new to team red!
First time rocking an AMD build and so far I'm satisfied with what I've got.

My only issue are the thermals of the CPU, I'm not quite sure what's going on.
Everything feels fine and smooth but looking at my temps on idle, I have a hard time figuring out what's up.
The reason why is because at idle (1 to 4% load) CPU temps fluctuate a lo,t going from 32Cº~ to 45Cº~
I haven't seen anything suggesting the CPU would follow the same trend under load so far.

My CPU cooler is a Corsair H60i

I've redone my thermal compound application once, thinking the behavior could be explain by a non-satisfactory thermal spread... but that I'm having the same results (also showed the copper plate was in perfect contact with the IHS)

Am I missing something ?

Normal for Ryzen processors to jump several degrees C under idle conditions as cores clock up and down.
