So suddenly the 3600's voltages are stuck at 1.42-1.46.
Temps idling at 50-55 Celsius
2 of the cores are stuck at 4.1GHz and all the others between 3.2 and 4.1 when idle
Power consumption around 45 watts when idle.
I didn't change anything from the BIOS, everything it supposed to be stock.
This started happening after i performed a mini overclock to my 2070 Super through MSI Afterburner (+100 core,+500 Memory) but i can't see how it can be related.

Any help is appreciated.

Motherboard: Asus X570 TUF (BIOS Version 2407,most recent)
Cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 Duo.

It's quite normal for BIOS to set 1.4v+ at idle, it should drop to 1.3v or less at load. You can try to use Vcore negative offset of -0.05 - 0.1v.
As for "stuck cores" check your background processes, it's possible that running Afterburner is adding to CPU usage.

I have the same cpu and I think the stock voltages are just too high in my opinion. If you want you can run the cpu at 4.2ghz at 1.275 or 1.3 volts (I have mine at 4.1ghz at 1.2375 volts with the stock cooler) by setting it in the bios for better performance overall. As for the stuck cores, that’s probably because you have the high performance power plan enabled (which is good) instead of balanced and don’t worry about frequencies staying high bc it’s free performance.

Right now I'm running it at 4.2GHz all cores 1.32V (240mm AIO, 70-73C Cinebench R20 ) so i guess "problem" solved.
