Whenever the pc gets turned on the cpu immediately jumps in temperature to around 180-200f All the other components are colder then room temperature. I checked and re applied new thermal paste but still is overheating.

That's perfectly normal. This is not overheating. Overheating is where you regularly reach 100c (Tjmax).

It pops up on my computer constantly saying it is over heating.

Also, do reply with the popup screenshot as well as check if the thermal paste has been applied appropriately.

Also, check with the app's impact and the number of apps that loads at system startup.

Hey @JesseB 

 

Hope you are doing fine.

 

As told by @n_scott_pearson  and you can also check the T junction (Max allowed) temp. for Intel® Core™ i9-9900K Processor is 100 deg C so it's normal, no need to worry. 

 

Also, you can try referring to the following links to get your all doubts cleared.

Just replaced the liquid cooler with a noctura fan. temps are now 90f or 32c.

This could mean a couple of things,

  • The liquid Cooler didn't have sufficient thermal mass in the block you mount on the processor.
  • The operation of the liquid cooler's pump and fans were not being properly controlled from the motherboard's fan headers.
  • There was something wrong with the liquid Cooler.
