CPU temps at 80 degrees plus when idle and when in BIOS...just intstalled new water cooler

Hi! Yesterday I bought and installed a Masterliquid ML120L CPU liquid cooler. Noticed yesterday temps were a bit high when gaming so while I was at my college classes today, I let my PC run idle and checked HWMonitor when I got back. At idle I'm hitting minimum 79 max 100 while WATERCOOLED.
So far I've tried
Reseating Cooler
Checked all plugins
Reseated radiator
Changing fan placement and direction.
Resetting BIOS to default settings
I'm running a Ryzen 5 1600 on a GIGABYTE AB350-Gaming 3 mobo with a Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 ti mini

  1. Best answer
    Never mind! Turns out the AB350-gaming 3 board has some oddly placed connectors, and my pump wasn't properly plugged in
  2. good job!, might be useful for someone else
  3. I hope so! Other than this I love this motherboard for its price, and overclockability. Ryzen has been great to me so far!
