Well, that's showing us the VID - what the core is asking for in terms of voltage. We need vCore - the voltage it is actually getting. We'd also need to see what those are under the load that's generating the heat. If you are using auto-overclocking settings, those voltages are going to be super-high. And that is going to be the problem, not the cooler.

High processor temps are usually indicative of too much voltage, not a cooler failure. Voltage generates heat at the pins. It's not immediately transferred to the cold plate - and there is some inefficiency with that anyway due to the TIM that Intel uses between the cores and the heatspreader. Yes, the 9000 series has soldered TIM but from the reviews I've seen, it's only marginally better than the paste TIM that they used previously. If Cinebench is using AVX instructions, that's gonna throw up some additional heat as well. No manner of cooling, short of LN2, is going to change that.
