Question about temperature

I just went through a I am using


MSI MPG x570 Gaming Plus

Ryzen 7 3800x


I am using CPUID HWMonitor and seeing my Ryzen idle between 45c as far as 57c


Anytime I do something, open an app, browse more sites, go through Discord servers, I see it quickly spike up to as far as 74c


It just seems to run hot. This is my first AMD processor. I came from an i7 (2011 socket, hexacore, 5820k) and it never sat or ran this hot. I was seeing mostly temps in the late 30c's.


Do these simply just run hot? What can I inspect if this is not normal?


Thank you for your help!
