CPU temp really high in liquid cooler

aida stress test all cores temp 80+ and 2 cores hit 90 ( max temp ) even in the bios its always 40+
SPECS : 7700k (STOCK)
BOARD : z270 pro carbon
COOLER : id cooling frostflow 240l
I feel like the temp is too hot for liquid cooling even its not that good cooler still feel like it should be lower.

This build is new i just built it today

EDIT : I tried run all fans at full speed ( pump ,radiator fans , case fans ) in the bios the temp doesnt even change 1C.

  1. 50 is bios is hot
  2. Can you elaborate on your case, fan and radiator mounting configuration?

  4. Your processors environment looks fine, as you've configured everything properly. Is this with an aggressive overclock or are you running on stock settings? If reseating the cooler on the processor doesn't resolve your issue, you can blame intel for installing poor thermal interface material inside the processor. This is most likely the reason for your high temperatures. Is your pump operating properly and is your radiator free of dust build up? You can also set your intake fans up to push air through the radiator.

    i tried reseating the cooler
    How to know if pump operating properly ?
    radiator is dust free its brand new.
  6. that is normal. dont use aida. use your pc for normal activity. I have 4790k and same result. corsair h115i 4.7 ocerclok 1.290 voltage. this kinds of programs try to fry cpu. if you cpu reach 80c or 90c while playing then you can think there is problem. propably you test FPU. so that degree is normal.

    That's a valid point. Unless you are editing/rendering/compressing video or doing something that places your cpu under a constant load, you'll likely never reach those temperatures.

    what he can do is to check termal paste, clean dust as you mentioned. I think pump is working properly. if pums didnt work it would reach high temp even in bios or uefi:)

    my cpu does reach 80 while gaming and fans run loudly

    i will try to buy new thermal paste and see. the one im using comes with the cooler and ther is no dust everything is new i just built it today.

    dont worry you cpu is normal. check the link I mentioned.

    You'll see a substantial difference in temps only if the initial cpu cooler installation was done incorrectly. Changing to a different thermal paste will only result in a few degrees Celsius of change.
