no it's not meant to be 70 at idle the CPU temp goes from 73 down to 60 constantly and repeats I can hear the fan constantly cranking up rpm then slowing down

Yeah i did it that way it idles at around 50 to 60 somtimes 42 but for like 10 seconds then back to 50 and underload max is 79 temp
Newer Ryzen CPU's have high idle temperatures, that's normal. 79c max temp under load is perfectly safe and common among 3700x's

Tho stock coolers aren't all that great, its always recommended to get a better cooler. But as long as your temperatures aren't going anywhere near 95c then you should be fine.

As far as the noise goes...that's just honestly how these AMD stock coolers are. A decent aftermarket cooler should give you better temperatures and be much less noisy depending on what you go for

Stock coolers tend to be noisy

A decent aftermarket cooler is the way to go, it'll run much quieter and give you better temperatures depending on what you go with
