Hi people hope you can help,
so i got my new gaming rig last Christmas and it's been cool bananas all year not a problem running battlefield 3/4 some steam games. Just before this Christmas got bf1, star wars battlefront and the division. like i said no problems what so ever and this was all on the stock cooler. (i know hard to believe)
Anyway got a cooler-master seidon 240v for this Christmas but since fitting it 9 days ago my PC has crashed to blue screen and rebooted 5 times now!!!
installed as the instructions said, connected the fans to the CPU_FAN header and the pump to the CPU_OPT. <<<<< is this right??
through the bios I've set the CPU_OPT at full speed as a read on some forums that the pump should be running at full speed all the time and the fans on the CPU_FAN are controlled by the computer/temp sensor <<<<<< is this right???
downloaded Speedfan 4.52 & Speccy to watch the temps. at idle my cpu temp is around 29-32c with the pump running at 2136 rpm and the fans at 770-830rpm. but when i'm gaming i'm getting temp spikes of 77/80c!!!
just not sure what to do now. have i set up right?
should i take it out clean the CPU and water block and apply paste again and see what happens?
i know one thing i had no crashes or blue screens till i fitted this cooler.
system specs are
case AVP venom blue VE-10B
OS windows 10 - 64bit
CPU I7 4790k @ 4.00Ghz not OC'ed
Ram 2x4Gb corsair vengeance
Mobo Gigabyte Z97x-gaming plus
