New 5950x installed. High temp issue

Hello
I have just replaced my 5800x with a 5950x and faces high temp issues. Note that I am running on air cooling (Noctua NH D115S) , waiting for my watercooling to arrive.
 
The MB is an Asus Crosshair VIII Dark Hero.
 
I am running Cinebench at 76°C and games at permanent 91°C!!!
 
Tried replacing thermal paste, no difference!
 
In addition to that, benchmark results look a little bit on a low side at stock (multi core 24894/single core 1589).
 
Do you think that can be a defective CPU???
 
Thanks

Hello there,

This seems to be an issue on ASUS motherboards from what I can tell, please see my post here: https://community.amd.com/t5/processors/ryzen-9-5950x-running-very-hot-74c/m-p/462307/highlight/true...
