What is a normal idle power for 3900X?

I mean "CPU Package Power" as seen in HWInfo, on a quiet Windows 10 desktop with overall CPU average usage at about 2% or less.


I'm seeing ~32W which seems high and also doesn't appear to correspond to the related voltages and currents.  My BIOS has XMP and PBO enabled, and LLC = 8 (off); otherwise stock settings.  This isn't a problem but I'm curious.  


Would appreciate a few data points from other 3900X owners, thanks.
