I'm using about 50% ram but I'm only using 10-20% cpu load and highest temp I've seen is 64c thus far.
Edited: forgot to put what cpu cooler I have its an Evga 240mm water cooler.

Should I replace my CPU cooler

Temps are fine.

Did you have some game running, when those screenshots were taken?
36% gpu utilization is significant.

If you didn't have game running, then might be cryptomining malware infection there.
Yes, I was playing minecraft running 3 accounts doing stuff. its just weird with these temps. I bought a blower tool to clean out my pc today hopefully thats the problem.

Im using a lower end rtx 2060 when I bought this rigg thats all I could afford. hopefully in the coming months I'll be upgrading my powersupply and gpu. I'm just wondering if I should buy a heatsink as well.

What does the temperature go up to under high load, say running Cinebench? A 240mm AIO is a little weak for a 9900k, often they are outperformed by high end air cooling. A 280mm or 360mm would suit a 9900k better, they are hot.

At 10-20% load and 4.4GHz 64c doesn’t surprise me. I’m more surprised by why it isn’t boosting higher.
Oh, well crap I might buy a 280mm cooler than any suggestions? I'll take the 240mm and put it in my old rig then.
 
Yeah. Your cpu cooler doesn't handle full cpu load very well.

How is your cooling system set up?
What pc case?
How many fans?
Aio installed in front or top of the case?
Can you show any photos of your system inside setup?
