Ryzen 1600 Temperature Fluctuation

Hello,
After a long period out of the loop of computers, I recently decided to update to the new Ryzen platform; a first experience with AMD.

I put together the PC with a Ryzen 1600 and it seems to be running relatively fine but one thing I noticed that is quite annoying is that the temperature of the CPU will fluctuate or spike, increasing by 10 C at random intervals before slowly dropping down again even when idle. This is a fresh install of Windows and I closed all background applications but this is still the case. Everything is stock settings.

It's driving the CPU fan to noticeably increase RPM every time it spikes temperatures. Is this normal? I've included a video of the behavior of the temperatures. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes this seems pretty normal, mostly windows background processes causing it, and also simple things like mouse movement from a completely idle state.

    You can control the fan speed if its bothering you on the motherboard in the Gigabyte app SIV, first time you open it, it will auto tune your fans, however, you can then set a custom curve, like keep to at 50% fan speed etc or whatever percent is quiet until the CPU reaches say 50oC, then have it start raising speed as temps get hotter.
