    H60 I7 2600K Overheating

    Hi guys, looking for advice,

    My rig has a H60 and has been running fine. I had to install a new C drive due to ssd failing, and i replaced it with a normal bigger hd.
    I re installed windows 7 ultimate and all has been working fine until i tried to play battlefield 4.

    My pc reset without warning. I checked my temps and the processor is hitting 90c under stress. The pump and fan on the radiator are working fine (im not 100% sure on the pump as there are no lights or any indicator to tell me its working), but the radiator is warm at the bottom and you can feel a difference in temperatures between the two feeds from the pump to the radiator, also the radiator fan is speeding up and slowing down.

    its only since i reinstalled a c drive i have had these issues. do i need to replace the thermal paste? or is this a common fault with h60's ?

    Im looking at getting rid of this water cooling and getting a normal air cooler as i dont trust the fact i have no idea what the pump is doing.

    any advice?? its a P6P 67 Pro Asus motherboard with a I7 2600K Processor

    Is there any software for the H60? What do you have the fan headers plugged into?

    No there is no software installed for the H60, there is the corsair link software but that just shows me the speeds etc.

    I have replaced the mother board since this issue , since then i have had the same problem which indicates to me the pump on the h60 is not working as it should be.

    I have moved the pump to the chassis Fan 3 Header as it was over heating on cpu fan 2, and on case fan 1 and 2. It seems to work on 3 for some bizarre reason and is holding about 60c under stress.

    I did go into the bios and check that cpu fan 2 and case fan 1 and 2 were all set on max output and 100%, but it didnt seem to work.

    strange! works now on case fan 3

    Sounds like it could be a power issue. On my H80i there's a Sata connector for power - make sure it's connected if you have one too and try another connector as well.
