1.544 V maximum and around 1.377 V average for 1600X on stock with XFR enabled. Is this normal or should I exchange my processor?

I've had my 1600X for around 3 weeks now, and I've got a few days before my 30 day exchange is over. I'm wondering if these voltages are normal. I've been keeping my processor running for around a day and I'm getting these numbers. They seem a bit high for me. I'm on the AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan.


Edit: When all cores are under load, it stays at around 1.26 V, it's only when it's idle I get large voltage spikes (most likely cause of XFR)


Other components I have are 3000 mhz 16gb team group RAM (running at 2933)

AMD said anything over 1.35 is unsafe, so should I be concerned? I'm running entirely stock voltages and clock too. I know the voltage boosts are for XFR, but it seems to be constantly high average voltages when using the Ryzen Balanced plan. Looking forward for anyone who can illuminate me on this.
