i7 8700k running too hot.

I recently got an i7 8700k and it seems to be running constantly at 4.3-4.7 GHz and 1.2-1.3 V. 

This is causing high temps, just having my PC on and browsing the web using chrome the temps reach 80c

When I played a game earlier today the temps almost reached 90c with not even a 50% load on the CPU.

 

I have tried two different coolers, the H60 and the H100 and there was barely any difference so I am convinced it has something to do with a setting in my BIOS.  

I have an MSI z370 SLI PLUS, anyone have any ideas?

Just checking, but did you apply thermal paste, screw down your cooler tight enough, make sure your pump is plugged in and working?

(edit): also try it without the overclock for now.

Yes, and as mentioned I tried two different coolers. Even if the cooler wasn't installed properly the fact that it is at a constant 4.3-4.7Ghz and 1.2-1.3V isn't normal right?

Yes,it is not normal. When it is turned on, put your hand on the cpu cooler part of the aio to determine if the pump is working

edit: I know you used two different coolers, but it may be the header on your mobo

The pump works, i want to know what I can do to fix the clock speed and voltage.

Try resetting the bios to defaults?

 

Also, if you have any windows programs that effect voltages/speeds, disable them.

Was it always doing this from the start? If so maybe a bad chip
