So I've got an Asus Tuf b450 Gaming Plus motherboard with a GTX 1650 and a Ryzen 5 2600 with a stock cooler. I've gone through every temperature reading software and I don't understand how I'm getting such temperatures while playing Rainbow 6. When I use Cinebench it could get up to 95 degrees. The thing is my motherboard temperature readings are at 40C while my cpu is at 90C, and the GPU is at 65. I even tried touching the heatsink and it was cold/lukewarm at best during Cinebench. Are these just faulty readings and if so is there a way to fix them? Thanks in advance.

What BIOS version are you currently on for your motherboard? Can you remove the cooler and inspect the mount on said cooler to see that the cooler is indeed making contact with the processor's IHS? Also, what version of Windows 10 are you working with? When the temps do show 95 Deg C, what does the stock cooler feel like, lukewarm or hot?

PBO enabled in BIOS?
