Is Spiking CPU EDC and PPT normal?

Yesterday I changed my case and added 3 extra fans. I now have 3 fans per header (CPU & CHA & AIO) (all are set with mildly aggressive fan curve).

 

I'm not sure if i am going mad and i just never noticed it before or whether the case move/extra fans has caused this. When i launch Battlefield 5 for example or run a benchmark Ryzen Master shows EDC spikes up to 98% momentarily and PPT to 80-90%.

 

Question: 

 

Is this normal and i didn't notice it before?

 

is the 10C extra cooling i now get allowing more power to the CPU? (i.e not being throttled)

 

or have i maybe damaged something, or overloading MOBO with the changes?

 

Appreciate the advice 

 

I have not attempted any overclocking whatsoever
