    i7 7700k 90 ºC on startup


      i have a i7 7700k (at stock 4.2ghz) installed on a asus strix z270e, its relatively new build. its been working just fine for the last two months (cpu temps around 36 ºC). but yesterday when I turned on the pc the temperatures of the CPU started increasing very fast up to 90 ºC. the wc corsair h100 was working in auto at 1300 rpm but still the temperature was constantly high. i updated the bios and disabled xmp but nothing changed. when the pc is turned on for a few minutes just in the bios I cant start windows because "CPU overtemperature error" pops up. so what should I do?
