Hello guys,
I have the setup down below. The proccessor is i5-10400F




After a year of using this, the CPU start getting 100 grade celsius in idle. I changed the thermal paste (Arctic MX-5) and for three days the temperature lowered to 60-70 while gaming and ~30 idle. But after the 4th day the temperature is 100 grade celcius again.
Any idea why or how to solve this?

RMA the cooler if possible.
There's not much you can do for these coolers once they start acting up.
-Try the pump header in another mobo header?
-Try changing the pump speed to maximum, if you haven't already tried it?
Most of them aren't designed to be serviceable by the user - so let the manufacturer deal with it, or get another cooler.
