CPU temp is going high to around 78-80C without any load. I went into BIOS and as soon as I turn it on the temp starts to go up. It first happened when I was gaming now I’m not turning on the PC to avoid damaging the CPU but every time I try to turn it on it goes up in less than 3-5min so I directly turn it off. I tried re-applying thermal paste (Kryonaut Thermal Grizzly). I have an i7-6700k processor with a Corsair H100i GTX Liquid Cooler.
 
see pump speed (if bios reports it) or check corsair link, it should run full speed all time
next try to touch your radiator fins if they get warm or if u feel heat comming from fans on rad

if pump speed is ok while rad isnt ok than your water flow is gone (air bubbles can restrict water flow and air in pump can kill it)
picture of your pc inside could help

Can’t find Corsair Link and Corsair iCue is not detecting my cooler.
