    i7-8700k overheat + throttle on High Sierra while fine on Win 10

    I've got i7-8700k running on Asus Z370-F Gaming and cooled by ARCTIC Liquid Freezer 240, and I'm having problems with this setup on High Sierra. While on Windows 10, it runs 4.3 Ghz and doesn't really go above 82 C, on High Sierra it can throttle and go up to 87-88 C. Any ideas? Thanks
