Check to see if all the pins are fully locked into place. the four that surround the heat sink. Sometimes they may pop out. This will cause the thermal pad/past to fail to make full contact with the CPU. I've built a PC with that. Didn't lock the last pin down. Ran at 90C to 100C easily. Fan was spinning. I Took the heatsink off to see that not all of the pad was smushed around. I would consider looking into that possibility

Thermal Specifications

The maximum temperature for safe operation is 100C.

The catastrophic thermal protection temperature is 125C.

Idle temperature is typically around 30-50C.

Temperature at full utilisation is around 60-70C.

These latter two values will of course depend largely on cooling systems
and available airflow.
