Overheating with AMD Ryzen 5 1600X

I have a brand new processor but it heats a lot. I'm using an ASUS Prime B350M-A  with default settings and latest BIOS version. The CPU reaches 100 degrees or more when max load amd 55-60 degrees when idle. I've verified the fans and cooler (be quiet pure rock 150 TDP) setup and replaced the thermal paste 3 times. The cooler still cold and the temperature high. The temperature in the room is correct (23 degrees).


After removing the cooler (5 minutes after the shutdown), when I touched the CPU, it is tepid.


Here is the EFI monitoring on startup. I tried to underclock freq to 3.2GHz to test, all the rest is default -> the temperature still 54 degrees.



Can you help me ? Is it defect ?
