CPU:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-10900 CPU @ 2.80GHz
Mobo:
MSI MPG Z490 GAMING CARBON WIFI
AIO:
MSI MAG series CORELIQUID 360R
Case:
MasterBox MB511 ARGB
GPU:
MSI RTX GAMING X TRIO
RAM:
32 GB DDR4 SDRAM Dual-Channel
Spectrix D41 DDR4 RGB

AIO (Top): Pull exhaust
3 Front fans: Intake
1 Rear fan: exhaust

While doing a CPU stress test my CPU climbs up to 98-99 degrees Celsius.
While Idle CPU sits around 40 degrees Celsius.
Oh, and BTW my CPU is almost always clocked at 4 GHz. (For some odd reason)
Ambient temp 29-30 degrees Celsius. (It's TOASTY)

Just wanted to know if my CPU temps are normal.
Thanks!

If you don't reapplying grease, buy this https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-MX-5-Incl-Spatula-Non-Conductive/dp/B08T621LGC and apply 5 dots on the cpu.
That should dramatically drop your cpu temps to 28c at starting and stay locked in under 45c.
Manufacturer grease doesn't always work out well in the end.

Also for a i9 cpu and you stress testing, that should be normal for it.

Hello! I've just applied new Thermal Grease just last week.
