New build: Ryzen 2400g heat issues

I just recently built my first PC. I was so excited to have the opportunity with the new APUs from AMD. However, it seems like my processor is holding at a high temperature all the time. Just having Internet Explorer up, my cpu's temp is at 45 degrees C. Then if I go in to play a game, such as Overwatch, I am hitting anywhere from 80 to 92 degrees C. I realize I'm new to this, but those temps just don't sound right. Everything I've found points to AMD processors having a max temp of around 91. So hitting that just playing a single game doesn't sound right. I checked my BIOS on my motherboard and it is only one update behind the most recent, so I don' believe that could be the cause. I'm not overclocking it, so that's not the issue. I don't know what to do to keep the temps down, and the last thing I want to do is fry something on my new PC. Is it possible that I just have a faulty processor? Any help is much appreciated.


Here are my components:


AMD Ryzen 2400g

Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H

Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000mhz

Thermaltake 600w PSU
