All I have for comparison is a 10th Gen 10850K running Cinebench R23 at a steady 5000 MHz. I am using a Corsair H115i RGB PRO XT with a 280 mm radiator.

With power consumption over 200W, it is able to keep the core temperatures in the low to mid 70°C range.



What sort of power consumption are you seeing during Cinebench testing? If your AIO cannot dissipate 200W of heat then maybe your cooler is not making full contact with the CPU.

The Thermal Grizzly - CPU Contact Frame for 12th Gen looks interesting.
