9700k underperforming

I recently bought a 9700k that isn't performing nearly as I would expect. I have it overclocked at 5.0 ghz, and I am getting around 7000 cpu score w/ time spy, 1300 on cinebench, and 3700 multicore cpu z. At stock im getting a mere 900 is cinebench. I am using a maximus xi hero, 16 3200 mhz ram, and a msi 2070. All drivers are installed, cpu cooler is on tight, no power throttling. For cooling im using a 360 mm aio, yet i am getting 100C+ temps with prime95 fans at max speed. This can't be normal, right? During benchmarks though, it stays around 70 - 80 C. I have xmp II enabled along the mce on. What should I do, I'm ready to contact customer support for exchange. Thanks
