Bad cooling or just PBO?

I enabled pbo a while ago, and decided to test it now (3900x). Before I'd get around 65-70c max load. Now I get 90c and 75c with prime95. My cpu seems to pull 175w for about 5 minutes each time, cooking at 90c. Then it falls to around 115-125w where it sits at 75c. It never thermal throttles

I have a 280mm aio (kraken x63) top mounted in a meshify 2 with 3 intake fans and 1 exhaust fan (besides the aio). Is this bad cooling/mounting pressure/paste? I did mount it not that long ago, but I think I gave it a decent amount of paste. Or is it just simply 175w being a fuckton of heat?

Bad cooling imho, I had a 3900x never went above 75c with a 280mm water cooler...

Even my new 5900x don't go above 85, clocking much higher 5mhz to 4.4 on the 3900x

How many watts does it pull, and what cooling? (on the 5900x)

My 5900X does 235w with a heatsink using one of the worst loads imaginable. I don’t see 90 with a heatsink, so something is not quite right.

Up to 200W, 280mm rad and DCC pump, but a 3900x is much cooler due to lower clocks
