Question My Ryzen 7 Is running at 100+ celcius

So I just downloaded Corsair Link 4, which is a program that tells me the temps of the computer parts. I was just in the fortnite lobby and it said my ryzen 7 2700 was running at 100.6 celcius. Keep in mind, my cpu runs at 3.3 ghz, and have not touched with the bios of the motherboard yet. I know this is not a usual temperature, and I am not running many apps, chrome, discord, and a game is usally what I open, and very little in the background. This is a brand new cpu, just ordered it on b&h and installed it last friday, Any ideas on how to let it cool? Right now, it is at 6% load and it is still maintaining 94 celcius.

Are you running an air, or liquid cooler?
Remove the cooler, clean off the old paste, dry(or let dry), reapply paste - a small pea in the middle... Mount the cooler, securing the screws a little at a time in a 'X' formation.

The above is pretty simple for air coolers, but if you're cooling with liquid, then the pump is probably dead/dying, and it'll be time to replace it.

alright, just ordered some thermo paste. hopefully it works!
 
I'm not sure about that program, but some software may report incorrect temperatures on Ryzen CPUs. You might want to try AMD's Ryzen Master Utility, and see what temperatures that software reports...

If that high temperature is accurate, then the cooler is likely not making proper contact with the CPU, and it might be worth reinstalling the cooler now even if you have to reuse the existing thermal compound for the time being.

So i just applied new thermo paste just in case, but I think you were right. This is what it shows on both programs. https://prnt.sc/pu1il4
I believe the 1st temperature shown on the ryzen master program is the cpu temperature, which is at 38 Celsius, and link 4 shows 88 Celsius. Thanks!
