      I have a MSI Aero GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11gb OC with a i7-8700K. I do not rely on Cam for temperatures. I use CUPID HWmonitor for temperatures only because there accurate. I have a different motherboard than you the MSI Z370 Gaming Plus. There should be somewhere that you can turn off the Intel turbo boost for your i7-8700K. So the cpu will stay at a base 3.7mhz. Intel turbo boost on will make it go to 4.7Mhz. I notice no difference what so ever from turning the turbo boost off and having the cpu at 3.7 Mhz max to intel turbo boost on where it allows the cpu to boost to 4.7 Mhz and I have a 32" Samsung Qled 4k at 3440 x1440 Res monitor. OTHER THAN TEMPERATURE. Having intel turbo boost off on the CPU so its max clock speed is 3.7 Mhz. Will greatly improve CPU cooling by 20C minimum wile hard gaming. Far as your GPU being hotter in CAM there is a GPU overclocking area. Where it says power limit it is set at a default of 100%. Set it at 60% all the way down. It does not prevent low performance. The GPU still boosts up to its max. I noticed my 1080 Ti before I found this trick out was running at 100% power causing it to go up to 70C even 84C.

          CAM reads the CPU_Fan header on most motherboard. Please verify that you have the CPU Fan connected to the CPU_Fan header on your motherboard. If you have a AIO_Pump, W_Pump on your motherboard you can try those header as well.
          If you are using a Kraken, please be sure to have at least one of the radiator fans connected to the 4 pin header on the Kraken fan port. The Kraken pump cable should be connected to the CPU_Fan header on your motherboard as well.

          Scroll through the steps on this link. You want steps 7 through 11. Make sure your 2 fans on the radiator are 4 pin PWM. If not, buy 2 radiator fans that are 4 pin PWM so you can connect them correctly. https://www.nzxt.com/manuals/krakenx/X52-X62-115X.html

            You know why? You bought the 750-3000 Rpm fans. There meant for servers only and only start spinning at 750rpm "I would return them". When you start up your computer I believe the way it is set up fans only run at 450 to 500 Rpm upon starting your pc. The 2000 Rpm IPPC fans might work because I think the lowest RPM they start is 450 RPM. I am no expert but this is what I figured out researching on Google. By the way those 3000 Rpm server fans you bought sound like a very loud vacuum. You only need 1500 RPM fans and a good positive or negative air pressure in your case "Google it". Hope I answered your question because your English is not so good. But I tried. Also make sure the fans are 4 pin so you can control them 3 pin is voltage control only I think and you can not control them or put them in smart mode.

              This is normal and has nothing to do with CAM. But I would not say Cam is completely accurate. I use CUPID HWmonitor to look at my CPU and GPU temperatures and the CPU cores fluctuate in temps and is normal. But I still recommend using CAM just not for accurate temps of the CPU.

                I noticed this same issue when I received my new computer 2 months ago. I have the MSI Aero GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB OC. The problem is these 1080 Ti cards and all GPU cards come with a default fan speed. The fan on the gpu does not kick on until 60C and its at a low number like 20% fan speed. At 84C the GPU fan goes to 100%. Which is so messed up you have to figure this out on your own. To fix the problem because honestly you do not want your GPU to go above 60C or they claim it shortens the lifespan and there like $1000 each for a 1080 ti.

                Go into Cam and turn on overclocking. It should be a slide tab in the top right corner. Turn it on. Where it shows "Profile: Standard V" Click the V to enter modes and go to New custom profile to set your own fan curve for your GPU. Make the last dot on the graph 100% fan speed at 60C and all the other dots on the graph set as you like. After you set your fan curve press apply. now beside the graph to the left there is "power limit" and a slider. It is set at default 100%. Slide it all the way down to 60% and press apply. Done issues solved. It will go slightly above 60C wile gaming and that's it but your graphics Mhz will still go max boost. So no performance drops.

                Please vote on my hardware issue where the "power limit" for the GPU overclocking only goes to 60%. It actually needs to go down to 50% so our cards 1080 Ti cards do not go slightly over 60C. I am also using a 32" curved Samsung Qled 4k 3440 x 1440 monitor at 100hz. You should get better temps if you are using a 1080P smaller monitor. I am no expert but this is what I figured out worked for my 1080 Ti.

                  Go into CAM where all the features are. Go to lighting, it is the sun icon. Go into preset and there are settings you can have that pump lighting features do different things with the lighting. To me does not look like anything is wrong. The lighting has nothing to do with your pump and radiator. As long as it keeps your CPU below 60C under load there should be no problems. I have the X62 as well and it works great with a i7-8700k even at 4.7Ghz the temperature does not go over 55C wile hard gaming in 4k 3440 x 1440 Resolution. I monitor all the temperatures with CPUID HWmonitor software.
