Question Ryzen 3950X / Corsair A100 with High Idle Temps?

Hey guys, I'm a little out of my element here with regards to gaming hardware and the proper/normal temperatures I should be seeing so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I recently purchased a Corsair One A100 configured with an AMD Ryzen 3950X processor. One of the first things I've noticed while running this computer is the high idle temperatures I'm seeing in psensor. I thought maybe this was a linux issue, so I rebooted the computer, went into my BIOS settings and found the following:

From a cold boot, the CPU temperature reads 41C. While inside the BIOS settings, I see these values steadily climb and eventually stabilize to:

CPU Temperature: 62C
CPU Package Temperature: 73C
Motherboard Temperature: 41C
T_Sensor Temperature
CPU Fan Speed: 3200-3480RPM
Chassis Fan 1 Speed: N/A
AIO PUMP SPEED: N/A
PCH FAN SPEED: 1655 RPM
HS FAN SPEED: 1531 RPM
CPU CORE VOLTAGE: +1.424V
3.3V VOLTAGE: +3.328V
5V VOLTAGE: +5.020V
12V VOLTAGE: 11.920V

Are these readings normal when idling? Are there any next steps to take on my own or with Corsair? Thank you!

ignore BIOS for now, what does windows/linux report when idling? 41 is a bit high but ok. In windows use the balanced power profile - you can use Ryzen but I find it idles at much higher frequencies - wasting power.

Oh should I be paying attention to the Motherboard Temperature? I was more fixated on the CPU Temperature/CPU Package Temperature.

After booting into Windows and running Corsair iCUE -- I'm seeing the following


AMD Ryzen 9 3950X
CPU Load: 3%
CPU Package Temperature: 65-70C

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
Fan #2: 0 RPM
Fan #1: 0 RPM
Temp: 38C

Corsair ONE
GPU Pump: 1944 RPM
FAN: 750RPM
CPU Coolant Temp: 44C
GPU Coolant Temp: 39C
CPU Pump: 1840RPM
