Well you have 2.5x the number of cores running compared to your old system, and it is air cooled so this is not a surprise. Even taking into account your Haswell was 22nm vs 14nm on your comet lake.
I have a Noctua NH-D15 on my delidded 10700k, which is only 8-core, and at 1.3 vcore 5.1 GHz it hits mid-80s on Realbench. So 1.28v all cores on a 10900k air cooled should be quite hot. Reason I got a 10700k instead of a 10900k is I didn't want to water cool.

I just realized I forgot to write what my temperatures are in my original post 😄 . It goes to 98-99C within 5 minutes of realbench.
I'm debating with myself right now whether I should switch to water cooling and get something like kraken z73 or arctic lf2. Or maybe even the intel's sub-zero cooler?
What's also weird to me is that I saw a guy on youtube running 5.2GHz on his 10900k with only 1.33v load vcore in cinebench, and it remains stable. I don't think I'd be able to run 5.2GHz at anything below 1.4v. Did I mess up something with my settings in bios or what, I have no idea? Also, that same guy peaked at about 70C during cinebench (he was using kraken z73 I think), while I get really close to 90C at 4.9GHz during cinebench.

Reachbench makes use of X256 encoding which uses AVX2, these extensions are known for pulling more current than conventional stress test routines. In regards to clocks and temperature, you may find your ceiling for AVX overclock will improve with more adequate cooling, as these CPUs respond well to temperature.
