3950x voltages and temps

So just built my new system and of course this is my first AMD build. I was wondering what the general consensus is in terms of voltage management. I notice with Core Performance Boost voltages are 1.4/1.5 on idle. Is this normal in 2020? I disabled core performance boost and the voltages have come down considerably. I don't overclock much anymore but being this is my first AMD system seeing those voltages really threw me for a loop.

You can always set 0.1 offset does wonders on my 3900x when idle. Ramps up and boosts fine in games with temps in check always.

Normal for the most part, ryzen idles at high voltages and low current. 

Once you put some load on the cpu, voltage will drop and current draw will Increase.

Offsets are nice but have in mind that not every CPU will be stable with - 0.1V offset. Its not really necessary anyways
