Is my PC running to hot? Wind up then down sound also?

Hey everyone, so I built my PC today and have just been getting used to it. I haven't played many games or put it under any kind of real load. Mostly watching some YouTube videos, shows, transferring files from my old laptop etc. Everything seems to be working fine so far, except there is 2 things I am concerned about.

 

1)  Every 5-10 seconds I hear this sound like something in my PC is revving up then revs back down. It's almost like a humming fan sounds, it goes up and then down within 2-3 seconds, but happens every 5-10 seconds. Any idea what it could be?

 

2) I'm not really sure how to check my temps for everything. I downloaded a few programs like MSI Afterburner, Speccy, and HWInfo, but there is so many options and info in these things, I'm not even sure what I should be looking for. Speccy seemed the most straight forward, but didn't have my CPU temp listed on it. I've been looking through the HWInfo one, and I think I found the CPU temp under the name of mobo, but it says its like 60-70degrees, and that sounds pretty hot for just sitting at the desktop or watching a show, right?  Here is a screen shot...

Am I reading that correctly? My CPU is between 60-72 degrees?  If so, is that too hot?

 

I'm using a Ryzen 5 3600, with just the stock cooler that comes with it.

nope those temps are fine. Have you checked taskmanager to find any weird apps using power or your compents?

NOTE: I AM NEVER ALWAYS RIGHT, BUT I AM HAPPY TO HELP ANYWAY I CAN

I just checked task manager now, nothing is really eating away at my resources. My CPU is at 15-20% being used, 10% of that is Firefox tabs,45% of memory is being used, 3.6gigs on Firefox again, but I have a video shows open, and YouTube etc.

Really? Okay well, that's good to hear. I googled normal CPU temps and it said like 25-35 degrees if you're not running any games and stuff. So when I saw I was 60-70 just at the desktop with Discord and a few firefox tabs opened I started to freak out lol.

AMD Ryzen gets hot faster. You are not at idle. That is what Google is saying. You have to be 95 C to hurt your CPU.

Voltages are on high side. If you want lower temps with minimal cost to performance, just turn off PBO.

What is PBO and where do I turn that off? Is that a bios setting?

Performance Boost Optimization or something like that. Yes, it's BIOS option. It pretty much tells BIOS to let CPU go on with higher clock speeds if cooling allows it.
