    Posted: 02 Mar 2012 at 8:14pm
Hello,

I've had this PC roughly 2 months now and I am experiencing a more frequent issues. Upon startup or at random times my CPU will start up with a 97oC. I use speccy and speedfan to monitor my CPU temps. I have also went in my bios to confirm and it does in fact hit the 90oC+ range and rises in bios.

This issue has occurred 3 times and is becoming much more frequent. At times i'll shut off the PC when the CPU spikes at start up and leave it off. Upon starting it up again it will have maybe 70oC but then rise up towards 97oC after a few minutes.

I was wondering what may be my problem. Perhaps the cooler wasn't mounter properly or voltage problem because the CPU came with a 10*% overclock and sits at 3.8ghz.

It seems this issue will be continuing rather than a random start up error. Just started computer up today and it started up idling at 51oC. 15 minutes later it is 80oC still idling.

I made sure all the screws are tight and they were just fine. I'm not sure what else to do.

Well it seems the liquid cooling system has gone bad. I just replaced it with a stock CPU fan and my system works fine. Seems I need a new unit. Thanks for your help hunter2618!
