Hi all,


I just replaced my thermal paste on my 10400 and whenever i turn it on, the CPU jumps up to 100 degrees celsius. The compound I used was Noctua’s NT-H1 Thermal Compound I have no idea why it’s doing this but it would be appreciated if I could get some help

I’m using the BIOS on my motherboard which is Gigabyte B460M DS3H, the CPU and heatsink around it feels extremely hot to touch.

Removing the CMOS battery has done nothing, the temperature remains at 99-100 degrees. The heatsinc and area around the CPU on the motherboard are extremely hot to touch
 
See the weird thing is,if your i5 10400 gets to 100C it should techicaly shut the pc off to prevent it self from dying,but since it doesnt,its kinda weird
Also are u 100% sure u have applied enoguh thermal paste and are u 100% sure that the cooler is mounted the right way?

I’m really not sure why, this is my third reapplication of thermal paste. It doesn’t turn off my fans turn onto full speed about three seconds after booting

I reapplied thermal paste, it’s idling at 45 degrees, but it appears to be heating up slower. As I just finished typing this its already reached 47C
