So I have an AMD Threadripper processor and my BIOS is showing a temperature between 85 - 90 degrees Celsius for my CPU? Is that normal? Should I be concerned that's too hot? If it is, what can I do to decrease this? Thanks so much

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is this temp take from a cold boot up or after a few hours of heavy use? If you are talking about a laptop, you could try a cooling pad, I have a 3 fan model I picked up for about $18,00 on line. Works like a charm.. Laptops are notorious for proper airflow to keep the system at a good operating temp. And another thing that can be a big problem. Depending on where you live, if you have a lot of pollen that comes in your windows and settles on the surface you use your laptop, it may get sucked into the computer and cause problems as well. The clearance between the intake and the surface is not that much.

    Though AMD Ryzen CPUs generally claim a 105°C max temp, it's usually considered not good to run regularly above 55°-60°C for any CPU. First thing to do is clean (vacuum) dust/lint from vents and fan and verify that any fans are running properly.

    Beyond that, it'll probably take more useful detail about the system and its cooling technologies to guess what can be done.

    How did you measure the temperature of BIOS? If you did it through BIOS Settings or using a 3rd party tool? Try using at least two 3rd party tools to make sure that, the measurement is correct like CoreTemp/Open Hardware Monitor. Just download/install and check the same again. If the CPU is consistently running hot, the current heatsink & fan may no longer be up to the task. Find a new heatsink/fan combo that will fit in the case & move air than the existing setup. For this purpose, you can ask for an expert.

    One more thing, you can add more case fans. If the case is not getting good airflow, it is needed to insert more case fans. This can help for fresh air is coming in from the front and top, while get exhausted out the back of the computer.
