If you are reading the coolant temp at the block, then it is possible the a/c vent blowing on it could make a difference. If you are reading the coolant temp, that cold air being drawn through the radiator could account for the difference.
It's the GPU Core temperature reading.

... ...yeah, I guess I went from a pack rat to Orca pod (hopefully not the kind that hunts & eats porpoises)

After updating my current main system ('Orca' below), I got into three retro builds with older parts I had for years and years - virus-induced retro-fever ? I even included the two out of two AIOs I own (one in continuous use since late 2012 which I finally opened, cleaned and refilled...more on those steps > here). That said, I usually focus on custom loops; still, repairing and modding an old 240mm TT AIO was kind of fun... Re. the attachments below, here is what you will find:

1 - 'Orca' (posted here before, but updated). That system has a TR 2950X @ 4.3 all-core, 64GB of DDR4 TridentZ 'Samsung-B', dual factory water-blocked Aorus Xtr 2080 Tis, a Heatkiller IV Pro TR Nickel block, some copper tubing, and QDs. It has dual w-cooling loops with a total of 5x XSPC RX 360 rads, 4x Swiftech D5 pumps, and 20x 120mm fans (including 9x GentleTyphoon). The case is a modded TT Core P5

2 - 'Red_tro' is based on a Asus Rampage V Extreme, a 5960X @ 4.5, 32GB of DDR4 Trident Z 'Samsung-B', dual EVGA 980 Classified (air for now), an EK Supremacy block, 1x XSPC RX 360 rad and 1x Swiftech D5 pump along with 4x 120mm InWin and 2x 120mm TT fans. Case is a modded Antec

3. 'RetroBlue' is based on an Asus X79-E WS workstation board, a 4960X ES @ 4.73, 32GB of DDR3 TridentZ, and dual EVGA 980 Classified (air for now). The CPU is water-cooled by a Corsair H150i Pro with 3x ML120 fans. The case has InWin and GentleyTyphoon fans and is a never-used 'CM Stryker' that still had the protective foil on the window...seven years later

4. 'Porpoise' is a companion system for the Orca system above and colour-modded to approximate it (including 'de-oranging' of the mobo, though that is not yet finished)...the mobo is a Gigabyte Z170 Force SOC, with a 4.8 GHz 6700K ES and 16GB of DDR4 TridentZ 'Samsung-B'. There are also dual 780 Ti Classifieds (air) and what I call a 'Bauhaus-style' open frame 'un_case'...

So far, the rebuilt and modded TT 240mm AIO has great temps (below 70C at 4.8 GHz for Cinebench)...this AIO had served me well over almost 8 years on various smaller-build 4-cores, at least until temps finally shot up after I moved things around recently. After taking care of that, I also changed the fans over to 2x Noctua 120mm and modded the mounting mechanism completely (now with a full metal back-plate etc). Most of the pics below are about this system. I hope you enjoy the pics.

We are pack Orcas.

If you have a temp sensor off somewhere, and a direct discharge of cooled air going into the radiator, you are not reading 'ambient' temperature as far as the system is concerned.

Agree with MakubeX, there's no way it can be colder than ambient temp unless you are using an alternate source like liquid nitrogen or parking it in front of an A/C unit or something. The copper that's in the core will only cool down as much as the room ambient when not in use. As soon as you boot the machine the cpu is immediately putting out heat. Odds are good you have a bad sensor or the software isn't reading correctly. Try multiple programs and do a comparative. If they are all reading identical, then it's a faulty sensor.
