Maybe the Kraken just can't handle the load. The 4790K isn't a hot chip at all, especially not compared to Ryzen. More cores equals more heat. That being said, your 3700X is definitely running hotter than it should with a good cooler / mount / paste. I have a HeatKiller IV block on my 3900X in a custom loop with Arctic Cooling MX-4 paste, CPU tops out at 70C-72C under load. But it took 2-3 mounts to get it there, plus I'm a spreader with paste, so I didn't use dots or X's. Just a decent amount of paste spread out with a little spatula.
Guts: ThreadRipper 2950X / GB Aorus Xtreme X399 / 64GB TridentZ Royal 3600CL16 / Zotac GTX 1080Ti x2 / EVGA 1000W PSU
Storage: 6TB RAID0 NVME array (ADATA SX8200 Pro 2TB x 3)
Water Cooling: HeatKiller TR4-Pro CPU block / HeatKiller IV GPU blocks / 360mm Darskide LP360 rads x 3 / Heatkiller reservoir
