High idle and load temperatures on Ryzen 5 3600 with a Cryorig H5 Cooler

I recently built a new rig with a Ryzen 5 3600 and a Sapphire Nitro RX 5700 XT. I'm very happy with the performance of the system in gaming although I could not say the same with the temperatures. At idle, I'm getting between 45 to 50c with the power plan set to Power Saver. Setting it to Ryzen Balanced gets the temps between 50-60c. I also noticed that the voltages during idle are substantially different between the two power plans. In Ryzen Master, the Peak Core Voltage shows about 0.9V and Average Core Voltage shows 0.3-0.7V for the Power Saver plan. For the Ryzen Balanced on the other hand, the Peak Core Voltage is between 1.03-1.4V while the Average Core Voltage is almost the same. On load, I even reached as high as 92c on Prime95 with PBO enabled, 85c with it disabled. I got the same temperatures when I ran a Cinebench R15 benchmark. I've already enabled the Cool n' Quiet and other recommended settings mentioned in other forums (shown in picture).  I've also updated my BIOS and chipset drivers to the latest version (shown in specs below) and yet I'm still getting the same high temperatures despite having an aftermarket cooler. Are there any other steps I can take for this? Thanks
