Hi,
So basicly i'd like to know if this normal and if not how may i fix this
My cpu temperature jumps by 10c every seconds and goes down 10c and its really weird and unstable.
at load and even at idle

motherboard - ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. ROG STRIX B360-G GAMING (LGA1151)

Well....first....it shouldn't hurt anything jumping around like that.
I think that's pretty normal when a program is making it do that.
...but I think that it's a little strange at idle.
I would go to task manager and see if I could figure out what program might be causing it.
I would also try another temperature measuring app like Afterburner or HWInfo and see if it still jumps around.

The same thing happens in Afterburner & HWID

I think that there is an app running....or a process running that is causing it.
As I said...it won't hurt anything....but it would be nice to know what it is.
If you go into Task Manager....you can temporarily disable programs that startup with your PC in the Startup tab.
I would disable some to see if it goes away.
Then you might find it by process of elimination.

I don't think its a program thats causing it, a week ago i formatted my pc and the first thing that i did is to check if this thing might've been fixed.. but nah

What do you mean that you "formatted your PC"?

If the CPU is heating up....something is making it work.
You said a program could've been heating it up, I have checked the same thing when i had only a fresh windows installed without any additional programs and it was still being jumpy like that

Ah....I understand. I'm not sure why you would get that with JUST Windows installed.
...although as I said....it won't hurt anything.
I wish I had a better answer.
