It doesn't seem like a blockage. The gaming coolant level is right on. It's cooling off. A blocked cooler would not - one way traffic to hot. So the only operating theory I have is either an unintended AIDA configuration in the test or we are still looking at some BIOS setting that is massively increasing activity when under a synthetic load (vs the natural load of a game). I don't typically think of AIDA as overly stressful, except perhaps FPU only tests. Which version of the stress test are you using? CPU only? Or all boxes checked (blend test)?
