Hey everyone. So I got my new computer in today and booted it up everything ran fine. I launched BF5 and Speccy was showing CPU temps of 95-99C within about 10mns of playing the game. I feel like im pretty much screwed because the coolers not gonna cut it and I dont know what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

First, open the side cover and make sure everything is seated & plugged in. The pump and radiator fan should be connected to the MOBO.

You can get into your BIOS and regulate the fan speeds for these. That temp I can believe for an AMD system. The same thing happened to me. Mine took longer to heat up. Once I added a second fan on the radiator my system cooled down to normal temps when stressing the cpu. Right off the bat get a second fan, install it on the other side of the radiator. The fan on the inside of the case should be pushing air out, the added fan should be drawing air through it and also moving air out of the case.

A 120mm sealed cooler is not much better than the a standard fan based cooler. Once water heats up it takes a long time to cool back down. If you had a 240mm sealed cooler you would most likely be good. I used to not like the larger fan based coolers, since they are like hanging a 2lb. brick off your MOBO. Yopu also need to take more care when moving a system around since any heavy bouncing, etc. can make it easier to damage your MOBO. However a cooler like the EVO 212 will do a much better job than a 120mm sealed cooler and they cool down when your cpu usage drops off a ton faster.

"was showing CPU temps of 95-99C"

I almost had a heart attack just reading that.

Try running another monitoring application like MSI afterburner, or EVGA precision, and verify that the CPU is indeed reaching these reported temps. It's not unheard of for programs to show the wrong temps.

The Corsiar H60, although not the greatest cooler, is magnitudes better than the sorry excuse Intel provides with their processors, and is better than some of the lower end air coolers on the market. Unless something is defective, the H60 is more than enough to keep temps nice and low.
