Assuming your GPU coolant temperature isn't set to Fahrenheit, that is most likely a false peak reading due to a sensor glitch or more likely a program glitch. With a liquid cooled GPU, you coolant temp should be just a few degrees below the same as your GPU diode temperature (often simply labeled GPU temp). In a cold room on first boot/wake, you may see the diode temp drop down to room temperature by coolant temp may be a few degrees higher to reflect the slightly warmer case compared to the colder room temp. As soon as you fire up the GPU to do something, things go back to normal.

Peak glitches are somewhat common, especially if you are using multiple monitoring programs. If using Link, you can also enable the graphing option on the side bar. That should provide more meaningful feedback than a single data point value.
