Hi everyone

i built a pc and using that for adobe premiere and its working fine. recently I have bought 2 games, RDR2 and Microsoft flight simulator.
when i start the game, decided to open MSI afterburner and monitor the CPU heat also, and got surprised, its always between 95-100c while playing games. when im in adobe premiere it never goes beyond 70c
I need your help guys, cant figure out what is the issue.

here is the specs of my pc:

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-10850K CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz
Installed RAM 32.0 GB
Cooling MSI Coreliquid 240r
GPU MSI GeForce 3060 Gaming X 12G GDDR6 Graphics Card

Here is the link of the screenshots.
cpu usage was only 17% but 100c heat

What is the chassis?
Where is the cooler mounted?
How long have you had it?
Probably better to just post an imgur.com image of the inside - please remove the side panel so it doesn't reflect anything.

The Coreliquid R has the pump in the radiator - that little black cube. You should avoid having that cube at the top, or near the top of the loop.
Because a pump getting exposed to air is no good. It's also a quick way to kill one.

You have an all exhaust system.
For reference, see this:

I strongly suggest testing the following:
Remove the 3 side fans, and mount the radiator there instead, but position it like this:

Don't position it this way though:

Welp, guess this cooler's busted... or to be more precise, the impeller's come loose from its chamber..?

One more thing before writing it off: Is there any give, or wiggle room, if you push down on the cpu block?
How about the cooler's backplate?
There shouldn't be any wiggle room from either.
