H60 running hot on r5 2600x

I recently got a 2600x and an h60 to go with it but the cpu is running oddly hot. It idles at around 40-45C and it isnt even overclocked. Ive tried different thermal paste and remounting it but that didn't seem to do it. Any ideas?

Case and fan setup?

The case is a coolermaster masterbox lite 5 rgb with 3 stock fans up front and the h60 in the rear. I know the case is very restricted with airflow and the h60 as the exhaust doesnt help either but the cpu gets up to 85c under load

Make sure your fans are going the correct way, how are they plugged in? Is this a new h60 or an older version? Not sure if the new one can use corsair iCue you can ramp up your fans.

Yes all the fans are blowing air in the correct directions and its a new h60. Also it cant connect with icue.

What pins do you have the fans plugged into and what pins is the pump plugged into?

The rad fan on the system1 header and the pump is on the cpu header and also connected to sata power. The front three fans are connected to a fan hub. I also tested the stock cooler and it has even worse results with the side pannel off. Could this be a problem with the cpu itself?

With the case closed it gets up to 85ish within a minute or two of prime95
