At idle my cpu seems to run hotter than expected. Its running at between 38 to 50 at idle. I am trying to trouble shoot and make sense of what I am seeing in Ryzen master. 

The EDC(cpu) is jumping around reading wise and most of the time showing in the red, not sure if this is normal or what.

Core speed is jumping around a lot at idle as well.

This is only my second PC build and first time using an AMD cpu.

I have the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

Temps readings are the same with Speccy, and Ryzen Master.
