So I recently got an i74790k from a friend to replace my i74770k. I have an h100i pump and when running cinebench the cores get very hot where as the pump temperature stays cool. I never noticed this with my old cpu. Is this a problem? When under 100% load the tempertures on the cores get up to 96-98c where as the pump temperature stays at around 30.

I would suspect that the cooler is not adequately seated.
Following that I would also ensure that the AIO itself is working as it should.
What are your ambient temperatures?
I agree with PC Tailor. I would also add that you would probably want to check around your CPU area to make sure you have nothing binding the water block and stopping it from seating all the way down onto the CPU.
