Default 2950X cooled by H115i, temps too high?

I think my temps are too high for my AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X not overclocked and running SETI on all 16 cores (i.e. CPU at 100%). I realize actual (Tdie) max temp for Ryzens is 68C. I have taken a screen shot of several programs running: CPU-Z to show CPU is not overclocked; iCUE to show that the H115i (actual AIO cooler type is in system stats) is maxxed out in fan & pump speed; HWiNFO showing both die temps (graphs showing idle temps (no SETI) and then 100% load temps (SETI on)). Of course room temp is normal, ~22C.

I had a system installer do the install and except for the H115i not covering the entire Threadripper CPU case (as expected), all mounts and thermal pastes were applied correctly.

Any ideas?

PS. Corsair sells coolers but there is no entry in the system stats for a cooler description? I placed mine as the second video card so it could be seen...
