i was using gigabyte z170x gaming 5 and i was hitting 44c at idle and 51c when heavy gaming on the PCH Chipset temp
but now with my Asus Rog Strix z590-E Gaming Wifi
when gaming for a couple of minutes the PCH Chipset temp reach up to 74c
from the hot air that is coming from the rear fan i feel like the motherboard will melt

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Can you state the make and model of your chassis and the way your fans are setup(meaning airflow) in your chassis? You might want to note that the fan at the rear will dump heat from the CPU and often times your GPU as well. You might want to see if aiming a fan at the PCH changes the temps. Might want to read through this thread. We would need more info as in the voltages for your PCH as stated on the previous link.

What BIOS version are you currently on for your motherboard?
