i5 8400 overheating

hi, I am using a cooler master hyper H401R, I just bot it.

I have checked everything 2 times, everything is fine.

in-game it starts with 80.c and goes to 100.c within 15-20 minutes

and then stays at 100.c at the time that's why I get less fps in-game

is there any fix for this overheating.

Inadequate ventilation.

Incorrectly installed cooler.

Incorrectly applied thermal paste.

The processor was working ok before you purchased this new cooler?  Return the cooler.

Also possible that fan speed controller is not configured properly to react to these high temperatures.

Yup, the processor is happy at 75c. 50 is a tad high for idle temperature, but some solutions shut off the fan down in this temperature range and thus it doesn't go lower.
