So I was doing some Cinebench with my i9-9900k and a Cooler Master ML240L and I was hitting 86C which I don't think is normal. If anybody could help that would be great.

Well the 86 is pretty high, are you running any overclocks?, check the fan curves, clean out the radiator and fans from dust, dust build up between radiator and fan can cause high temps.

Check if the AIO is mounted properly and check for pipe blockage. Feel the AIO as you're doing a benchmark and see if only the CPU block is hot. If so, that's bad and there's a problem with the AIO. Everything, the radiator, pipes and pump should be warm.

Thanks for the help guys. I think I'm going to upgrade to a Corsair H100i RGB Platinum. Hopefully that will help my temps.
