Ryzen 2700x temperature is wavering even in idle

Hello, how are you? I hope well.

My setup is:

AMD Ryzen 2700x

Corsair Hydro H60 120mm

Gigabyte GA-AB350M Gaming 3

 

My Ryzen 7 2700x idles at around 35ºC, fluctuating between 28/45ºC. Every 5-10 seconds the temperature rises, the cooler speed increase, so the temperature goes down. It gets high, low, high low oscillation going on at idle that's getting annoying. I’m using the default BIOS configuration, but even within full speed, this fluctuation occurs.  I never saw a processor work like this, usually, the variations are of 1 or 2 degrees. My BIOS is updated, and my PR is brand new.

I’ve searched for it on the internet and I have found different responses. Some people say to change the BIOS until finding an ok configuration (which I already did, without success), but some people recommend letting it go because it’s normal.

I don’t know if it is a cooler issue of if the BIOS is misconfigured. I’m wondering if it’s normal or if it’s killing my system. Is that really normal? Thank you!
