Yikes. Don't power that on again. The cooler is a builder version of the CoolIT H100i. Normally, I would suggest you go in and take temperature checks, etc., but in this case there are two clear problems. 1) That mechanical gnashing. If you hear stuff like that, it's done. Don't run it again. It is doubtful it's moving any fluid, which in turn is causing issue #2. 2) The PC hitting the thermal protection zone very quickly is a usually a sign no fluid is moving. While things like dust, fan orientation, speed, etc. all have some small bearing on the end temperatures, the above problem is in a different class and you should not run the PC again until you can secure a replacement cooling method.
