Is this a normal behaviour? In cpu id hwmonitor voltage and watts fluctuate, as well as sometimes the temps go up by 10c up, then immediately drop down again. Watts and voltage fluctuation is constant and even core speed fluctuates all the time. I have no issues while gaming or browsing etc. Everything seems normal. CPU boost is working at 3525 Mhz while gaming according to MSI afterburner . In cpu-z it goes up to 3.6 though when idle/browsing. Is that normal as well? Thank you in advance!

Yes, that's normal behavior for Ryzen. They try to 'idle' at very low clock speeds for power savings. Then, when a processing task comes along, they boost to very high clock speed and voltage to get it done really fast and return to idle.

Normally in Windows there are frequently little tasks running that make it boost, so you see it like that.
