I support that decision.

/proc/cpuinfo::AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor, fam 23 model 113 step 0

A synthetic load (perl -e '1 while 1') x 16 shows:
Adapter: PCI adapter
Vcore:        +1.28 V
Vsoc:         +1.02 V
Tctl:         +94.8°C
Tdie:         +94.8°C
Tccd1:        +94.8°C
Icore:       +76.00 A
Isoc:         +6.75 A

A BOINC workload on average:
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Vcore:        +1.17 V  
Vsoc:         +1.02 V  
Tctl:         +94.9°C  
Tdie:         +94.9°C  
Tccd1:        +95.0°C  
Icore:       +88.00 A  
Isoc:         +8.00 A  

The BOINC workload, when it momentarily spikes:
Adapter: PCI adapter
Vcore:        +1.32 V  
Vsoc:         +1.02 V  
Tctl:         +94.1°C  
Tdie:         +94.1°C  
Tccd1:        +96.0°C  
Icore:       +105.00 A  
Isoc:         +7.75 A  

For a processor sold as a 65 W part, observing reported sensors as 
88 A x 1.17 V + 8 A x 1.02 V = 111.12 W just can't be. We are off by a 
factor of about 2.
