    I was thinking more of the explosion that blew the lid off the reactor. From a cold boot, the CPU was 50 degrees centigrade by the time the bios would show temperature, and it would tic up while only the bios was running.

    Good luck! That stuff is so anxiety provoking

    Since it had at least one thermal shutdown, I have no idea the a state that the hardware is in. With my current situation with work, this is really the last thing I needed. At least I have my CDT to help me play some music and relax.

    Are your fans all spinning up?

    Yup, the fans spin and the corsair h110i is lighting up and pumping water.

    I had something like that happen to my computer. Luckily, it was #3.

    Thermal paste should be here later today, for me to check if reseating works.

    Keep an eye on the AIO cooler, I had a H100 and an H100i fail on me (both pump fails). Since have switched to a D14 and it has been solid!

    If you have the stock cooler try popping that on to eliminate the possibility of the H110i being the problem.

    I'll keep that in mind. This is an x99 system, and I got the OEM tray, so no stock cooler for me. I have plans for my next upgrade/rebuild to do an EK-based custom loop, but that is 9 months out.

    Custom loop is really the only way to do water.

    A reseat failed, so now I'm going to get a new cooler, still cheaper than getting a Mobo.
