Hello,

About a year ago, I purchased a prebuilt PC through IBuyPower. When it first arrived, I noticed the CPU temps were pretty high. Idle I would see between 57-70C.. when running a game it would sit around 87-95C. I didn’t think much of it, because I have read that these chips can get fairly hot. Well here I am a year later, and I am idling at 85-95C.. sometimes even reaching 100C+.. I am sitting in BIOS and my CPU temp is 95C. It’s gotten to the point to where my PC just shuts down once it gets too hot. I am wondering if I have a faulty pump/cooling system, or if there is just an issue with the thermal paste that was applied. (See attached pictures) I have not messed with any settings in BIOS, nor have I even attempted to overclock. I have already cleaned out all of the dust and ensured my fans are all working properly. Not really sure what else to do at this point, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

System:

Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

MOBO: Asus TUF X570 Plus (WiFi)

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Super
Cooler:iBuyPower 120mm RGB Liquid Cooling System

Memory: 16 GB DDR4-3200 MHZ ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D41
