So i bought a pre-built rig from cyberpowerpc a year ago (i did not have the time to make it myself).
My specs are as follows
8GB DDR3 2133mhz (RAM)
EVGA GTX 1070 gaming edition (GPU)
Asetek 550LC 120mm Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler
this is my problem. I noticed that randomly my pc shuts off low and behold its my cpu getting to hot. my idle temp is 80 degrees Celsius when i run games it gets into the upper 90's
i have no OC on my cpu nor gpu nor ram everything is stock default settings when it comes to OC
i have dusted and cleaned my tower multiple times still same issue with my cpu temp
with the current cooler i have installed its a "maintenance free" cooler so i have not did anything with it thus far besides the dusting.
i was thinking of trying to put new thermal paste on my cpu block and cpu but after watching a video from a fairly large youtuber his test show that thermal paste does not start making a huge difference in temps until about 4-5 years (his info not mine) and my pc is not but a little over a year old
so i need help i do not know weather its my cooler (which i thought it was a good cooler for what it was) or should i try and re apply thermal paste or if i just need a new cooler overall.
any opinions/thoughts is highly appreciated.
Contact Cyber Power for warranty service, sounds like the CPU cooler is faulty.
