Hello guys i have just upgraded from a gtx 95 to a rtx 2070s and my i7 7770k has started becoming very hot when playing games hitting temperatures of up to 90 degrees in gta v. I was wondering what might be causing this

You are most definitely pushing your CPU harder than it used to, because the CPU is now able to feed the GPU far more data than with your old GTX 950. If you are using the stock Intel cooler on your 7700k you should consider upgrading to at minimum a Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 or CoolerMaster Hyper 212 series 120MM tower cooler.

replace the thermal paste and cooler 90 degrees is just 10 degrees lower than the cpu max temp limit. maybe add some case fans. otherwise you are shorting your cpu lifespan quite a bit.

might need to check your case temps, the more powerful GPU is likely to raise the ambient temp inside the case.
You may need better case cooling, better airflow or simply remove the side panel during gaming if that's not an option.

What is the current cooling solution? (Suspect it is certainly not adequate for the (stock clocked or overclocked?) 7700K, based on your 90C gaming temps.)
Currently i have an asetec lcl cooler that was in the computer when i bought it prebuild in 2012

change thermal paste, chances are if the PC is from 2012 and never had paste replaced that is most likely the issue. Ive had to do same for a friend not long ago.. his i7 was hitting 90°C , replaceing thermal paste dropped temperatures 20 degree.
