[SOLVED] Should I be worried about these voltages?

First of all, I'm new to Ryzen so I don't even know if this is normal behavior. B550 Aorus Pro motherboard and Ryzen 9 3900X CPU at stock settings.

Only BIOS changes are:
  • Power Supply Idle Control = Low Current Idle
  • CPPC = Enabled
  • CPPC Preferred Cores = Enabled
  • AMD Cool'n'Quiet = Enabled
  • PPC Adjustment = PState 0
Global C-State Control is set to Disabled since I've determined C-States are the cause for my constant shutdowns.

Here are my voltages in HWiNFO at idle:



Is this something to worry about?... They seem a bit high.
 
I have a 3900X and I had the same voltages. Just put a negative offset of -0.1V on the CPU in the BIOS.

it's not necessary but a lot of people do it. It doesn't affect the performance. The CPU doesn't need 1.5V.

1.375V is enough. Idling at 0.8V.
