[SOLVED] Why is my CPU running HOT

I'm really confused by the temps I get with the r7 3800x, when I benchmark my CPU with Prime95 for longer then 10min. it gets 90 degrees(also happens when gaming but only on modern games like COD:MW). I'm using the noctua NH-d15s and the Sharkoon TG4 case. The Three Fans in the front are intakes and the one on the back is a exhaust fan.
I already:
Reapplied thermal paste(Artic MX4)
Cleaned the PC
Change the CPU Cooler(Recent one was LC-Power Cosmo COOL LC-CC )
Here is a screenshot of: CPU-Z, HWMonitor, Taskmanager
Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time!

Potential hot box of a chassis.
3 intake fans, but a glass wall in front of 'em, because glass is breathable, right?
There's some little gaps at the sides for intake, but fans draw air in a cone in front of them... plus, the fans in the chassis probably aren't that good for bringing in air around that glass wall.
The chassis also lacks exhaust - there's only one place for it. There will be trouble getting heat out effectively with specific hardware combinations. That, combined with the weak intake...
I suggest a new, more airflow friendly chassis. Ease-up on all the tempered glass. Open mesh is your friend when one is trying to cram hot parts inside a box.

So first of all thank you for your answer. I already thought about that do you know any good Cases for Airflow? Thank you in advance

I don't know what's available to you, especially if you're outside of the US.
What's available in one country may not be available in another.
That's right but could you please give me an idea about what I have to pay attention to when buying a case because I don't wanna do the same mistake twice

It's not TOO difficult.
All four of these chassis have something in common. Take note of what the front intake and the top panel look like.

A PC is a space heater. Air should be allowed to enter and exit smoothly, and only one thing does it better than open mesh.

Here are three ways to keep your computer cool:
  1. Keep it Clean: Dust and grime gets sucked into the computer case by the cooling fans and builds up over time.
  2. Give it Space: Make sure your computer has free space around all sides and that nothing is blocking the cooling fans.
  3. Keep the Room Cool:
  4. Signs of Overheating:

Be sure to clean your computer's case occasionally to prevent dust build-up. ... It's possible that a CPU, graphics card, or case fan failed or became unplugged, reducing air flow. Tune Up Heat Sinks: If your CPU is overheating, its heat sink may not be seated correctly or its thermal paste may be old. targetpayandbenefits.
