Hello Everyone!

My PC has had a lot of issues lately, but I think I've finally fixed them for the most part. The only thing that is worrying me is that my CPU is reading 90 degrees Celsius+ but the CPU % used is less than 10. It goes to 90 degrees while basically being idle, and I don't know what to do about this. NZXT Cam and my Bios are both reading it as over 90 and I can literally hear the fans sound like they are about to take off. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
 
What CPU and moterboard do you have? Have you built the computer yourself?

When temerature issues appear like this, the first thing I'd check is that thermal paste aren't dried out and that the CPU cooler is properly mounted.
