CPU Temperatures Rise until BSOD on no load MOBO temp # 2

Specs:
i7 4790k
ASUS Hero VII
H100i GTX
Windows 10

I recently switched my PC over to a new case and am now my cpu starts off around 45 degrees C and steadily rises until it BSODs with clock_watchdog_timeout.

I have fans set to performance level on Corsair Link and I would like to believe my pump in the H100i is still working as when I switched the pump frequency from 1820 to 3060, the temperatures rose a lot slower. I have also reseated the cooler on the cpu 3 times with no success.

The motherboard temp # 2 is also rising with the cpu, but motherboard temp #1 is at normal levels, staying around 27 degrees C.

I'm running out of options to test, does anyone have suggestions. When I try to download something as well, the cpu temp rises insanely fast and will BSOD

  1. Motherboard temp #2 is likely your CPU socket. If your thermal paste is good I would say that your H100i is not doing its job.

    Try the stock cooler if you still have it just to see the difference.

  2. if the pumps working

    its how you are mounting the block

    too much thermal paste

    or too little thermal paste

    or not mounting the block flat--you need to gradually tighten the block down in a X pattern

    dont fully tighten one screw then the next--do them all a bit at a time

    Just reapplied the thermal paste and this time spread it myself to make sure I got a good amount. Tightened the block in an X pattern, but still have the same issue

    Looking like that so far, although just tried messing with the pump settings again and got the same results so I'm not sure. When I decrease the pump amount, temperature raises significantly faster. When I increase it, temperature drops for a couple degrees and then continues its climb

    How old is the AIO? I would guess:
  6. The pump is running but is not working efficiently or is slowly dying

  • bit weird since your pump seems to be spinning

    these types of pumps tend to

    either work

    or not work

    but not work inefficiently

    they are very simple so theres not really much mechanical parts involved to cause it to start working inefficiently--as long as the fluid is clean

    its just to put it simply a magnetic impeller driven by a magnetic field far as i understand it

  • I would still recommend trying an alternate CPU cooler. It will be the easiest way to rule out the AIO as the problem, despite its failure mode.
