Water Cooling i7-7700k, HWInfo Shows 92 Degrees Maximum, I installed th Corsair H100x & The board is overclocked 5ghz.. Having no crashes..
But HW Info shows Core Maximum 92 degrees in Red & the Minimum in 36 degrees ?

Is this normal ? I'm trying to find out if the overclock is:
  1. Stable
  2. Why Afterburner OSD is showing the temps jumping sporadically ?
Thank you
 
TJMAX IS 100c so you really need to bring down the core temp for longevity. Try to bring it down closer to 80C. Check your Case Air flow and add larger or more fans if you can.
Check your Core voltage and bring it down till the system refuses to boot then increase in .01V steps till it boots. That or reduce CPU core frequency in Bios.
