That is a very high temperature. The issue may be to do with the thermal paste; how long has it been since you have applied new thermal paste to it?

We need some more info aside from the above, such as:
-The paste used, and how you applied it.
The Ryzen cpu, because of its multiple dies underneath, a thin layer, but covering the whole IHS is best. If you did 'a little in the middle', some pastes don't spread as easily as others.

-The chassis your components are housed in, and the fan setup.
-Hopefully, you don't have fans setup backwards or anything - it does happen. For reference:

-Where the radiator is located.

-Motherboard? Some models 'pre-overclock' the cpu to varying degrees even at stock bios.

-Windows power plan. Preferably balanced. High performance really doesn't do much for Ryzen and just makes them needlessly use more power.

Ok, preassembled then.
Could you take the side panel off(to avoid reflections) and post a picture of the interior, the front, and the top?
Also, did you choose the option for cpu overclocking(if it was offered in their services)?

At the moment, my suspicions are weak airflow and too aggressive of an overclock(if present).

OH. I misunderstood the 'something like pictured' part.

Lets see here...
Ok, probably the biggest mistake here is the radiator fans. Too close to the wall that is the front panel.
You need to move them to the other side of the radiator, pulling air though and into the chassis. Then there's the usual making sure the pump speed is maxed out - I believe it's extreme setting in iCUE.

This person did it... but the radiator fans are facing the wrong way, and the tubes up position doesn't 'hold up as well' as tubes down.
i see but in my pc the tubes are down and the fans are on the other side i will send you pictures and then say to me if it is ok or not

Radiator and tubes are fine. Fans are not: because they have little breathing room.
They can't move as much air when they're so close to the solid front panel. Moving them to the other side of the radiator will alleviate this.
ok thanks
is it easy to do ? im no expert in this
do you have a guid for it?

I don't have a guide.
The radiator + fans are secured to a removable bracket with a couple thumb screws. Remove those, so you can take the radiator/bracket/fans out.
Unsecure the fans from the bracket, install them on the opposite side of the radiator, making sure they are positioned to PULL air through said radiator.
Secure radiator to the removable bracket, reinstall inside the chassis with the thumb screws. That should be it.
