Ryzen 5 2600x idle clocks

Hey guys,

 

 

Just finished a build for my brother using a Ryzen 5 2600x. I noticed while at idle core clocks are spiking between ~2.2 ghz and 4.2 ghz. I've been inside the BiOS only to set the XMP for the RAM at 3200 mhz. I can audibly hear the fans spinning up and down while just sitting at Windows home screen. I've installed the latest Windows updates and this activity still persists. This is my first Ryzen build so I wanted to know if this is normal or does some tweaking need to be done with fan curves, voltages, etc... Thanks.

 

Build:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x

Cooler: Stock AMD Wraith Spire

RAM: G Skill Ripjaws V 3200mhz

GPU: EVGA Nvidia GTX 1060
