Ryzen 5 1600x Temperature Concern

Hey guys so I just got done building a new pc. The above processor with Asus Crosshair VI hero and GTX 1080. Customer water loop for cooling. I am using a Raystorm Neo block. So I have read that temp reporting on these processors are +20c. So if I check with MSI afterburner I am showing temp swings between 36 and 62 currently almost looks like a saw wave on the graph. So I open up RYZEN Master and it is showing same temp. Water temp after CPU block is a steady 35C. I have unmounted my block and used different thermal paste. The back of the motherboard where the socket is, is not hot at all. I am confused as all get out. I have been reading from some people that this behavior is normal and I shouldn't worry, but that goes against my better judgement. So can someone offer me some insight? Thank you very much!
