Ryzen 7 3800x ...high temps/voltage

OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC (x64) Build 17763.615 (1809/RS5)

CPU: Ryzen 7 3800x

MOBO: Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaming

RAM: Corsair Vengence 32GB, 3200Mhz


BIOS: 5204

Cooler: NZXT Kraken x52



I am at my wits end with this... I've done everything I could think of, I've even replaced another cooler with the Kraken x52, which is what i'm using now. I am getting ridiculous temps idle, and high load. I also see my core voltage always spiking to 1.45 (doesn't go down)(is this normal??) When running Prime95 or Cinebench, I am immediately spiking to 95c, and my core voltage is dropping to 1.2-1.1v, and i'm seeing my peak speed drop as well.. (see the second pic)


Things I've attempted:


1. Updating the bios, and the chipset to the latest version available (as per this post: Community Update #5: Let’s Talk Clocks, Voltages, and Destiny 2 )

2. Set my power plan to Ryzen Balanced

3. Reset the bios by pulling the battery.


I'm also getting this strange thing, if I set my RAM timings by using the XMP profile, my computer doesn't want to boot. I have to set it to below 3200Mhz, and then restart, and go back into bios and set it up to 3200Mhz for it to boot at the right frequency.




(I think the minimum processor state should be 10%?)

I just took a screen shot of what I have at the time.


Any suggestions on what to do would be appreciated..
