Badically new pc, freezes and overheats.

Hi my name is Chris and I have had a really struggling problem where my cpu(39°c +) and my mobo(40°c +) overheat. I just replaced my heatsink with a brand new corsair h100i v2 liquid cooler, I don't understand why it keeps freezing and I have tried so many other solutions but nothing has worked. Both of the temps rise very fast and I have reapplied thermal paste before to the correct amount. Please help I am out of ideas.

  1. cpu at 39ºc and mobo at 40ºc its pretty good actually, are you sure you're having heat problems?

    I'm pretty sure, it doesn't surpass 40°c for the mobo but I have seen my cpu go to about 43°c And that's as far as I've seen because when the mobo gets to about 40°c or so it freezes as a failsafe i am gunna try to check my new liquid cooler and see if I had misplaced any pind. Is there any other reason why it starts up and freezes after about 10-15 mins of use I am just super confused about this.

    Add full spec's of your system. CPU / motherboard / ram (and speeds its running at currently...use cpu-z) / hard drive / gpu. Screen shot (or just check) your Device Manager screen, make sure there aren't any screwy failing/lacking drivers there...

    The temp's as you've posted them are fine...Though we don't know if this is when you have it pegged out, or if its just idling. We need a bit more info to make an informed opinion etc.

    Programs you can use for stress testing specific parts:
    Graphics: FurMark...will peg your graphics card out
    CPU: Prime95...will peg your cpu out, and some ram out (and generally will push your motherboard power wise as well)
    HD: Crystal Disk Mark or HDTach (or any number of other hd programs...as long as it doesn't show a bunch of errors and runs at a speed similar to other drives of its type you should be fine)
    AntiVirus: Malwarebytes (run it live it love it...), porn, or rather viruses can cause issues as well. Malwarebytes free, is great for running one time, but you should have a full AV running on your system as well (either the paid version of MBam, or any number of other AV's out there)

    edit:
    HWmonitor...allows you to monitor your hardware closer then some built in programs...you may already be using this, but i'd recommend having it...

    Specs:
    Cpu- Intel i5 7600k
    Mobo- Asus z170 gaming
    Ram- (16GB) forgot the name
    Psu- 700w 12v
    Gpu- Nvidia GeForce GTX 970


    Usually idle temps for CPU and mobo are around 40°c and running max I have seen my CPU go to around 64°c. Also are any of those programs free?

    I'm still kinda new at hardware but I had built my pc from scratch and it was working for a while and was happy when I actually saw it turn on but about 2 weeks ago my friend wanted me to get more fps in games so he also thought there was a problem with my heatsink and now it freezes. I have put so much money into it that I really want to do whatever to get it working again.

    1) =>would like to know partnr or more.Can look with cpu-z ->spd tab for that (cpu-z is freeware),can look with hwinfo too,just don't check "sensors only" but just click "run" and look at the top window (system summary) for the info.Click the "system summary" away and in the main window is there also a button "Sensors" at the left top.

    2) =>would like to know more about that one as well->maker/model

    Yes alot are. The next i do find very nice for sensor readings and is freeware,

    download hwinfo64,
    install and open it,
    check "sensors-only",
    click "run".

    Did he do anything to the pc?
    Tried a clear cmos?Do enable XMP after that for best ram settings.

    Other thing when picking best answer you say it is solved,but after that you come with more questions. Some might disregard the thread for reason that BA is picked.Just saying,even apesoccer might think things are good.

    I hope this helps https://gyazo.com/7e13c351a69f38f333b80d116c5ed07e
    I got this from installing my new corsair H100i V2 liquid cooler and i also have MSI Afterburner on in the back with my fans at about 95% so i can use my pc at the moment

  7. It gives some helpfull info,but what is see seems fine. Ram settings seem to indicate that you are using either 2133mhz ram or haven't got XMP enabled. Did just a cpu test there?
    No voltages there so hard to say if that is a problem. Coming to that,again which psu are you using?

    Can also check voltages with the next tool (gives other sensor readings as well,

  8. Sorry i'm just now getting back to you. Hopefully you've already figured out the issue...But some common issues with new builds with heat are: Improper clamping (or screwing down) of the heatsink, putting too much paste on or not enough (there are a ton of youtubes out there on how to apply cpu paste)...it takes very little thermal paste, too much can affect it negatively by a small amount, while none can create quite a bit of issue... With water coolers, there are a couple things to look for...One, if the ambient temperature rises to the point where its too hot to do anything and or starts clocking down when nothing is running and cpu usage is low, then you could potentially have an issue with it getting power or it being broken internal to the water cooler in some way. You want to contact the company or reapply the paste and attempt to reconnect it again, you might also try plugging in the device to a different power lead. Another thing that is a common issue...If you put the fan on backwards, or if you have filters blocking air flow, often the fans on the cooler aren't strong enough to pull through the filter at a quick enough pace, or if pointed the wrong way based on how all of your fans are setup, you could be created a pressure build up and heat up issue because its putting hot air in the machine rather then pulling hot air out etc.

    and for what its worth i didn't read Vic's posts so he may already have the right answers, apologies for double posts if thats the case...Good luck!
