New CPU temp Problem


I recently upgraded my AMD Ryzen 5 5600X to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core Processor and its has been burning really hot ever since I installed it. The When ever I boot up the PC I would check the temp really fast and see that it was at 70 Celsius and then eventually go down to around 50C while idle but whenever I open chrome, YouTube, or just swap between tabs or videos it would go up to like 68C, and I did apply Thermal paste before using it. The worst part is that I can play any game because when I booted up Minecraft it spike up to 80C just from opening the game. My old CPU never went this high on ANY of these things so what is going on and what do I do, do I bring it to micro center?
