Hi all, the other day I've upgraded my pc to a ryzen 2700x, before I had an fx8320 always overclocked at 4.5, never used turbo boost, so I'm kind new to this feature.

After setting ram and installing every driver I run into a issue, the base clock of my cpu is rarely under 3.9, always at 4.0, with random drops to 2.5~ in idle, is this normal?

Temps are pretty high too, 38 to 50 in idle with an Arctic Liquid Freezer 120, maybe I used to much paste?

The uefi bios is all stock, I have only the doccp profile enable for ram speed (3466 for now).

Using ryzen master in auto doesn't change the clock at all, only with manual.

During tests in prime95 the cpu hit 61 degrees and only 3.9ghz.
