I've only noticed this recently, but even when im doing nothing the CPU will constrantly run above 4.00Ghz. In terms of usage and temps, usage stays around 1-10% which i believe is normal while the temp stays at around 50-60 C. Is this all ok, or do I need to mess around with the BIOS settings?

Here's a screenshot of the CPU being monitored: View: https://imgur.com/a/fqiCXvt

Ah ok so its normal?
Yes it is normal for Ryzen, you may also check you temps under heavy load, it should not be higher than 85c.

You also need to update BIOS and chipset as recent updates fixed some issues. And I would suggest to enable AMD balanced as your power profile

Really? Then what is it?
You have something running in the background obviously. Check you Startup list and Task manager.
Right now, with Firefox open with several active tabs on my system most cores are asleep with 2 cores at 2.2GHz (slightly oscillating), it's at 1% usage.
PS. You may also want to check your Power plan and set Minimum processor state to about 5%..
