i5 5500K? There is no such CPU. Is your CPU the i5 6600K?

Please update your motherboard, CPU and graphics card information in your Personal Details as stipulated by the rules of this forum.

Are you certain you have installed your CPU cooler properly? Perhaps you should open your case and check that first?

Yes, because, before when I had windows, it didn't happen

Hi there,

Firstly I don't understand the CPU - is it a 6600k Skylake 3.50GHz chip?

It shouldn't run hot if it's running at only 3.19GHz. (In your OP you call it a 5500 3.19GHz).

I wonder if this is a HWMonitor problem. Is it reporting correctly ...?

You could try running macOS, wait for these big temperatures, then quickly reboot and check the PC's health in your BIOS. That should be more accurate - both frequency and temperature.

So far not much makes sense...

CPU wattage and voltage use does not correspond with your listed temperatures on HWMonitor. Think HWMonitor is reporting incorrectly.

Download and check the results with Intel power Gadget. If it is very different, then it is HWMonitor issue.

Sorting out Power Management will allow your computer to perform more like a real Mac.
