1500x Heating up

I recently built my first PC. The CPU i have is the Ryzen 1500x, but i seem to be having some heating problems. From what I've been able to figure out online is that the average temperature while its idle should be around 35-40 Celsius. But whenever i check the temperature with AMD Ryzen master, my CPU shows up at around 50 Celsius, just browsing. I also haven't overclocked it. I already re-applied some thermal paste, but its still the same. I am using the stock cooler that came with the CPU, but i don't think that should be the problem. What i'm trying to ask is if there's something wrong with the CPU, or if i did something wrong while putting the build together. And if something is wrong with the CPU, what should i do?


The components of my build are

-Ryzen 1500X

-8 GB corsair Vengeance 2400

-550 watt corsair psu

- MSI RX580 8GB armor

-MSI B350 PC Mate Motherboard

-500 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive(For Now)

-Windows 10 64 bit
