first check your fan profile in bios - maybe it's set to silent? you can adjust to standard or turbo and see if that changes. it would also help to know what your ambient temps are.

You don't have to anything if you're already using Ryzen Master.
Ryzen cpu's behave a little differently; idle temps are going to be a little higher on them compared to Intel's.

But if under a workload, you find it reaching some 80C+ temps, I would then suggest remounting the cpu cooler.
The stock push-pin models are a little tricky to mount correctly; it's fairly easy to screw it up.

You'll need to clean off the old paste(alcohol and a soft cloth works), add new(just a small pea in the middle), and secure the pins in an 'X' formation:
-Top-left and bottom-right at the same time - the pins must CLICK!
-Top-right and bottom-left at the same time, CLICK, and done.

Another thing to check is power option in windows.Usually when just installing os + drivers it would put your minimum process state to 90%. Change it to 5%
i am really not quite sure how to go there it only says power saving, balance performance, ultraperformance in my edit power plan

Both.
Every time you separate the cooler from the cpu, you should clean off all the old paste. Leaving it on will create air pockets, and thus hot spots on the cpu's IHS, increasing temps.

Just stick to Ryzen Balanced in the power plan. That one works the best.
