Ryzen 3600 always on max clock?

Hi guys, good day to y'all =)


I recently bought a whole new computer, with the new Ryzen 5 3600 and a "arsenal gaming" B450 motherboard, that already came with a updated BIOS to use the processor.


When i first turned it on, it was overclockling my cpu and (i assume because of the weak wraith stealth cooler) temperatures where very high and making a "high-low" temp graphic, high spikes every 3 or 4 seconds.


I managed to turn off some options in the BIOS like Precision Boost, game boost and boost overdrive.


Now, my problem is, every now and then my PC does a "hard stutter" of 0,5 to 1,5 seconds (freezes screen video and also sound), and from my searches with CPU-Z, Task Manager and Ryzen Master, my CPU is always at 3600 MHz speed (3,57 GHz with task manager) and it wont go down. I already tried running different Power Options in Windows configs, but to no avail, and i fear that this behavior might damaged my CPU / Motherboard in the long run.


In summary:
- My Ryzen 3600 wont "relax", and is always at max clock speed (3600 MHz).

- Every now and then (Not very often, maybe every 2 or 3 hours) it does a hard stutter.

- I already tried gaming, and it its perfectly normal, wont overheat and is delivering its performance very well.


Can this be an effect of bad hardware, a bad installation of it (like a bent cpu pin or scratched Motherboard), a necessity of a BIOS update to the newest one? (By the standards os brazilian market, i assume its still the first BIOS released for the new chipset, but i dont know how to check)


Anything that can help this problem of mine is very welcome!
