Hi, I'm trying to figure out why my CPU temps are so incredibly high. Hitting 100C regularly under moderate load.
Win7 x64, GeForce GTX 760, Core i5 4670. Not overclocked. Temps should not be that large.
I feel as if they were lower before I went on a two week vacation. Came back and fan speeds seemed louder. So, I started checking temps with "Core Temp" diagnostic. Hitting the 100C safety cut-off any time i enter a game, and sometimes just browsing the web.
- Pump plugged into CPU Fan port 4-prong.
- Fans plugged into 4-prong Chassis fan port using included Y-adapter. Fans are working.
My Seidon's blue light is on (which means it is getting power, I believe), but when I load up a hardware monitor I see CPU Fan speed of zero. See N/A as fan speed when viewing CPU Fan Speed in BIOS. But, does the zero CPU fan speed on the pump indicate that the pump is not running?
Assuming that it was working, I have just re-applied thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5, following their directions: cleaned both connector ends with alcohol until shiny, tinted both sides, used a small line of compound). Have seen no changes changes, in the 20 minutes its been running - not a lot of time for the compound to spread, but should see something I'd hope. Running at 5-10% load and temp is 66C with a max since startup of 91C. When playing a game, I'm once again bouncing off my 100C BIOS safety cutoff.
Something is definitely wrong.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
