Even with good cooling.

Causes can be a motherboard issue, settings, wrong BIOS or other.

You left out the motherboard and such detail so I have to share the usual.

A few things.

1. Without the make and model I can't offer much.
2. Do try the BIOS defaults.

So this is all?

Sometimes folk don't want to share details so I'm left to guess (badly) or defer to repair counter. I try to avoid both.

I take it you did check temps with other tools and as to malware and such you did not rely on just Windows Defender, Norton or such but used the better method of scanning with tools noted by Grif (a super moderator here). Grif often writes:

Remember I do not have the Web Speccy or your findings when you check with other temperature tools.
