intel I7-10700 Tempeture problems


I bought a computer not two long ago, a bit less than a month, and eversince I got it I realized that the CPU overheats really fast. At idle the tempeture sits around 45C and it does not move form there unless I open up something, an app, a game even a notification can make the tempeture move although just barely. The problem is that games, specially online games, make the tempeture go real high 75-88C at best, I have seen it go pass 90C at times, and I´m real worried about whatever could happen to my computer and the fact that I can barely use it since most thing make it overheat, but it is weird, the tempeture spikes up really fast but just as quickly does it cool down the moment I close the game or app in question in about a minute the tempeture goes  back to around 45C. With online games, an example I can give is that, I open valorant and just as it loads the game client it goes to 76C and when in game it can go higher than 90C, but I can play DMC5 in about meddium setting and the tempeture stays around 68-75C depending on how much I play. 

So I am just baffled at could be happening, I have an air cooler, a cool master 212 Spectrum, plus I bought 3 case fans, some Munfrost solar wind, and the tempeture doesn´t go down, the case fans did work, somewhat, but the tempetures are still crazy high. 

So if someone has any idea of what could be happening please tell me.

These are perfectly normal temperatures and you do not need to be unduly concerned.

The way that Intel has it spec'ed now says: if, at peak load, the temperature is not reaching its Tjmax (maximum junction temperature, roughly 100c), then this is considered normal. Obviously, the further away from Tjmax you stay, the better; if you are seeing temperatures sitting around 90c with only short duration spikes above that, then everything is fine.
