3800X runs hotter that 2700X

What are other people experiencing with the 3800X on an X470 MB.  The Vcore jumps to 1.40+V every time there is a background task.    I am running the system with BIOS Defaults.  Does the 3800X do this on a X570 MB?  Under load it likes ~1.36V.  Also, with an old Swiftech Apogee XL water block in a  custom cooling loop the system runs IBT - 10 passes and reaches a max temp of ~72c.  That's 2 or 3c better than it was doing with an EVGA CLC 280 AIO.   I've got a newer Apogee SKF water block on order maybe that will cut the max temp another 2 or 3c.  I'm currently using MX-4 (2019) thermal paste.  I've got a tube of Grizzly that I haven't tried yet.  Comments please.
