When i use Cinebench r20 my 8700k reaches 100 Degrees Celsius do i need a new cooler or put new thermal paste on or lower the clock speed>
I currently have a deepcool Captain 240 EX
 
I am assuming you have overclocked?
Have you set fan speed higher to see if this helps reduce temps? The 240 should give good cooling, I hear it can just be loud.

Either you need to reduce your overclock or potentially refit your current cooler with new thermal paste - you'll want to keep CPU temps below 80 degrees really.

What is the make/model of your case?
What is your cooling fan arrangement?
Do you have a hot graphics card running?
How is your radiator oriented?

Take the case covers off and see if that helps?
