ust noticed that i got low FPS while playing Battlefield 5 unlike before, so i decided to check my temps:

65-70°C while idling and 90°C+ while gaming.

i've tried reapplying thermal paste three times but no success. I have also tried switching directions of the radiator fans but no success there either.

Checked if my Pump is broken. It's not, currently running at 3060rpm (Max)
The Pump cable is set on the CPU fan header, and the rest are on SYSFAN headers.

I don't know what to do now, anything you guys can help with?

Specs:

CPU AND COOLER: Intel i7-6700k Skylake 4.0Ghz with Corsair H100i v2 Liquid cooler

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4g

Motherboard: MSI B150M BAZOOKA

RAM: 16 GB

no set that to cpu package. Also I see on your photo that two of your motherboard internal temp monitors are at 127C. Are you blowing your cooler air in or out of your case? Hopefully out because it is very hot inside your case.

if you have your fans blowing at maximum you can hear the fans roaring, and pump at maxium your cooler is bad most likely. And I checked my internal temp monitor and I believe the two 127c read outs are false readings.

My pump is set at ''Performance'' mode and i dont think i have low liquid since i don't see any leaks.

i finally solved it lol, some screws were loose on the back,(back-plate?) which cause the pump not fully come in contact with CPU
