I am hoping someone can help. I have had my current system since December 2016 with no problems to speak of outside of some software glitches. Spec is in my profile. I had a problem a week ago where the system would not boot past BIOS as the CPU fan was not functioning. I have a H100i V2 watercooler on the CPU and plugged in the CPU fan header. I took the side of the case off and the fans were running. I left it a while and rebooted to find everything working fine, but then the CPU temp rapidly climbed to 99 Celsius, but I had no system shutdown and the system seems stable. I have had occasional grinding/scratching sounds from the water pump but it seems to be working although the sensor generally settling between 45 celsius and 55 celsius. Neither of the tubes in and out of the waterblock are particularly hot. All the case fans are going nuts at times, rapidly changing from whisper quiet to full power and then back again. I have contacted Scan who I bought the system off for help, but they are closed due to Covid 19 and already have a rapidly growing waiting list of tickets for maintenance requests. I thought about buying a replacement H100i, but am unsure if it is this that is starting to fail. A problem with the CPU or just a temp sensor that is causing errors? I have no spare parts to swap out the CPU or watercooler to check if they are functioning.
So prior to now the system was absolutley fine for 4 years, was setup correctly in exhaust mode, custom curve for gaming, everything was peachy Recently though anytime the CPU is under load the temps shoot to 90-100. Idle is still around 60. The fans on max in link do bring the water temps down, but the CPU stays overly high. I don't feel water running through the pump, but I'm not 100%. Also, the exhaust air being blown out is cold which seems weird? Should it not be hot Any help would be appreciated as I have a dissertation due in a month, and need regular breaks for Hearthstone :biggrin: So far I have checked all connectors, run a malware scan with norton, updated windows, checked BIOS again but nothing helps
