Voltage creates heat. The cooler attempts to relocate it somewhere else, but voltage is always the limitation. Fan and pump settings are minor factors in the overall temperature.

What Vcore did the auto tune put you at? Lake processors are spiky in general and Prime 95 unmodified is a blowtorch not a tool, so I am not sure how much weight you should give those results. What about normal usage, including gaming or anything else? If you want to run a stress test, try the "benchmark tool" from CPU-Z. It is linear load and should produce a flat CPU temp that will only go up with increases in cooling temp (+1C coolant=+1C CPU temp).
