R5 3600 Idle Frequency

I bought a r53600 last week, and since the CPU has been idleing at 1700~2200Mhz. I'm used to Intel where the CPU goes all the way down to 800Mhz to keep the CPU cool, so I was wondering if it was normal. as the CPU idles at ~40c with a Frozr L and the ambient temp here is pretty hot. Something like ~30c.  


I tried to find a Cool'n'Quiet option in the bios of my CrossHair VII, apparently it's the AMD's version of speedstep, but I couldn't find it.
