Ryzen 7 3700X overheating

I have an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X using the stock Wraith cooler and thermal paste

My system consists of:

Asus TUF X570 Gaming with WiFi (most recent BIOS)

G.Sill Trident Neo Z Royal 3200 32GB

Intel 760P m.2 NVMe 1TB (most recent firmware)

Radeon X590 with 8gb not overclocked

Windows 10 2004

PBO is disabled

All drivers are the latest versions available.

I power on the system, go direct to the BIOS and go to the monitor, temp steadily climbs to over 80C and the system shuts down and I am unable to power back on Until I switch the APC surge suppressor off and back on.

I boot to Windows without going to the BIOS and open Asus AI Suite 3 and watch for 2-3 minutes and temp flutters between 65C-75C.

I then open Ryzen Master and while moving to the advanced view the machine goes dead again.

I have been working with hardware a long time and am no NOOB.

Something here isn't right and I need help.
