My 9900k is running anywhere from 50 to 90°c at idle and at 95°c and throttling to 3600mhz under load. The temperature of the liquid sits around 27°c. My GPU is also running slightly slower than usual. Any idea what the issue is here?

System Specs:
i9 9900kf
RTX 2070 EVGA Black
Gigabyte Z370 hd3
2 x 16GB 3000mhz Trident Z Memory
NZXT X73 CPU Cooler

1)Cooler not mounted properly, or back plate not installed correctly.

2)Pump is dead, clogged, or not receiving power.

That's pretty much what it comes down to for you to be seeing 90C in bios or idling on the desktop.

I must have bumped the pump at some point or not installed it correctly because I just tightened one of the screws slightly and temps dropped 20°c instantly. Its now running better than when I first got it. Thanks for the help.
