AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Overheating

I am very new to the Pc world and have no idea if this is supposed to happen but my CPU averages around 50-70 degrees on idle , and the highest I have seen the temperature go before crashing is 116 degrees. right now I have taken the side panel off my pc and i out a fan next to it to hopefully cool it down and  it sits at 96 while I have one tab of YouTube open. I really have no idea what to do these are my specs if it helps : 
GeForce rtx 3060 
16gb RAM with 2400Mhz

I am not very experienced either, but that seems hot even for no cooling at all. Mean one browser would be like 6% load max?

What is your cooler? You may try to reinstall your cpu cooler, fresh paste, and undervolt it.

Sounds like pump has failed, cooler not mounted properly or tight enough. I would say pump has gone or not plugged in to header.
