Hello! I am having issues with my new i7 7700k. temperatures are too high( 85/92 °) wile playing borderlands 3. I am trying to low the core voltage from my bios( I have an msg Maximus IX Apex) but when I set it to 1350 I press enter and it goes back to 1900. I really do not know what to do and I am afraid of break down the cpu. I did not tried to overclock it at all. it was like this from the beginning. the thermal paste on the cpu is well set down and the cooler works fine.

Yeah, your CPU Cooler might be the issue because its has 92mm Fan and that's clearly not enough for a CPU known for its high temps.
So look for a CPU Cooler with at least 120mm sized Fan and i will be happy if you share the results after the change of the cooler :)

But temps also depend on the Case so make sure you also have a good airflow for an extra cool in the PC
