Ryzen 5 2600x voltage spike

That's normal. The voltage swing is due to the clockspeed differences between idle and boost. There's still stuff to do in the background even if you're not actively using the computer and the OS will pick a core to do that background work.

Also when its underload the voltage will be around 1.35 to 1.41v will that damage my cpu?

From what I understand it is the nature of the beast.

I was worried and i thought it was a problem and i am a noob

I too have a Ryzen 5 2600x and for most of the time it will sit at 0.8 volts at idle with a spike to 1.4V once in awhile. There are many other users reporting the same behavior and stating that this is just what it does. Also there is a Timmy Joe PC Tech video on the 2700x that goes over this a tiny bit.
