Hello , so my h100i gtx doesnt cool the cpu when playing games

 

I've got over 90 degree temp and even hit 100 and the PC didn't turn off...

 

the case is clean of dust and I applied 5 times thermal paste and nothing changed I've changed the setup of the cooler and also nothing changed

 

This problem happen this month I had the H100i for almost 2 years

 

the paste is moving from the center of the cpu for some odd reason

Any ideas how to solve it?

At first glance that looks like a lot of thermal paste. Are your CPU temperatures rather jumpy or erratic? Either way, you shouldn't need that much. The TIM is a gap filler between the two surfaces and not superconductive material that makes everything better. Try a rice sized grain straight down the middle. It will spread out into a thin layer as soon as you power on.

 

The above may or may not be the cause and we need to distinguish between low coolant temp/high CPU temp (contact problem) and high coolant/moderate to high CPU temps (cooler problem). In Link, what is the H100i GTX Temp (bottom of main tab) at idle? How does this compare to room temperature? When you first power on/wake from sleep, does the coolant temp (H100i GTX Temp) warm up a few degrees and level off? Or does it continually climb and CPU temperatures get worse the longer you are up and running?

35.7 c GTX temp at idle , when i start up the PC the temp increases and reach 80 c then cool down and keeps jumping from 30 to 60 in 1 sec
