Cpu Heat extended over 105c and now underperforming?

My i7 6700k skylake cpu, i recent built a new pc with 8 gb ram of g.skill trident z and a 1050 ti, should be no bottle neck if i am correct, i first built it and the system ran fine with no issues that i could see, i open up cam to see the stats in game of counter strike global offensive and the cpu temperatures were extending over 90c at this point i stopped and let the pc cool down for several hours, after that i came back to play some more, the temperature was fine but after roughly 30 mins i came to conclude that it had execeeded the 105c cap or whatever and im not to sure what to do now as i am a bit of a noob when it comes to this, some say i have to check the heatsink but i doubt it as i have reseated my liquid cooler and it runs fine but the cpu is very well underperforming and not performing as it used to, im not sure what to do. Please help me out ive tried everything but the thermal paste.

  1. When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs like so:
    CPU(and CPU cooler):
    Motherboard:
    Ram:
    SSD/HDD:
    GPU:
    PSU:
    Chassis(and any additional fans):
    OS:

    Have you made sure your motherboard BIOS is up to date? You will also need to include your ambient air temps to help us understand the range you're seeing. It would also help if you could use Task Manager's Resource monitor to assess how much of your system's resources are being sued when idle and when under load.

  2. If it is hitting 105 then there is a definite cooling problem. Either your cooler is not pumping fluid, the fans are not running/ not fast enough, or the block that contacts the top of the CPU is not firmly seated or needs new thermal compound.

  3. If the CPU temperature is shooting up to 100C and beyond, this means either your liquid loop pump failed, isn't connected, has a severe obstruction/kink, is stalled/empty or contact between the CPU and cooling block is poor.

  4. This is for sure a cooler problem, have you tried removing the cooler and using another one lying around? (If you have one) my bet is the pump died and you are only getting thermal dissipation through the static fluid acting as a heat reservoir. If your pump has a 4 pin pwm for it, look in HW-monitor (download if you do not have it) and see if the pump is actually working.

    Once you solve the temperature issue, I'd look into a proper PSU, rather than a bottom-tier one; Raidmax makes some fine budget cases, but their power supplies are notorious corner-cutters, using the cheapest parts you can find.

    i dont understand why should i get a new psu, what will i benefit from it, i mean the one i have does the trick. im more concerned on the cpu as not long ago, it was performing great and fine, but now its "underperforming" not to sure about it as its not playing as well as it used to.

    i am pretty sure that my bios is up to date, aimbient air temps: on idle it goes from 26 to 35 which is really odd, it bounces up and down same with load, it goes from 2% and goes everywhere inbetween to 13% ON IDLE. when running for eg playing csgo it goes up to 40% load and 60c

  9. "....liquid cooler...."

    "...high temps, 100C.."

    ditch the pump, get a Noctua or equivalent, whatever your case width will handle...

    Well, not frying your parts dramatically one day or slowly damaging your parts in the long-term is a pretty good benefit.
