cpu temperature problem?

my cpu i3 9100f reaches 75 degree celsius when case is open and 85 and more when case is closed im using intel stock fan when i was mounting the cpu cooler it got removed so i got it back into place and my idle temp is 40 degrees so is the temp normal for an i3 9100f or should i reapply thermal paste the 75 and 85 is during 100 percent usage of the cpu


on a website there is an info that the max temp need to be 72 degrees

Update 2:

when i was putting my cpu cable from power supply the fan got removed from its place so i put it back into its place so is that the reason my cpu is overheating because you need to change thermal pate everytime you remove the fan

    If the thermal paste is fresh then you can simply reattach the cooler, if it is more than a few weeks old I would remove the old paste and apply new. If in doubt just remove and replace.
