Just built a new pc with a Ryzen 7 3800x cpu. Since I turned it on, even at 1% or 2% cpu loads (sitting idle, not doing anything), it is constantly running at 4.4/4.5 ghz, occasionally dropping down to 3.9ghz for a split second then jumping back up. This is keeping my fans running high as temps keep jumping to 50+ deg. What is causing this and how can I make it not stay at constant max boost?

 

Note: Power plan is AMD Ryzen Balanced.
