Temps on 3700x

So I am running a 3700x on a crosshair vi hero on bios version 7106.  I am using an a240g with an additional 360 rad.  When running prime 95 maximum heat and power stress test the cpu is hitting 85-87C.  Pump and fans running at 100%. made sure to bleed the system of any air and remounted the cpu block 2 times.  Idle bounce from 35c to 57c. I am in an air conditioned room so if anything that should help temps. Strange part is that the air coming out of the rad is not even hot.

Re: Temps on 3700x

ive come to the conclusion that the beta bios on 300 and 400 series boards are not reading temps correctly. after spending the past 3 days playing with a 3600x on a b350 and a 3700x on a b450 board both on liquid cooling and both hitting 80+c and 3 tubes of thermal paste later..that would be my conclusion. and yes i am having the same issues... fans spin up to max but rads are still cool with cool air blowing out of the back yet ryzen master says its pushing over 85c. 

I would just adjust your fan curves and ignore it until a new bios fix is implemented.
