Threadripper 1950x overheating and shutting down

Hi All


My system was working since 5 months with no issues and suddenly it started heating up and shutting down

Config I have:-

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x

ROG STRIX X399-E GAMING motherboard

Enermax Liqtech TR4 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition

G.SKILL TridentZ Series 64GB (4 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200

Samsung 960 EVO



I recently cleaned the whole desktop (after the heat up) and reapplied ARCTIC MX-4 - Thermal Compound Paste.


I am wondering if my AIO is even working. The fans and AIO pump goes in different ports on motherboard. The fan are working for sure, how do I know if the pump is working or not?

Plus could this be an issue with corrupted CPU.


When I start the CPU, it start from 50-60 and even if I do not do anything it keep climbing up to 100 and shut down. (tried that twice, then just let it be shut)


Attaching the pics of my setup, in case any of you think any of the wiring is wrong

Thanks in advance
