Hi so I was playing rust for a while overclocked to rage mode, cpu overclocked to 4.2mhz and ram at 3600 and the power cut out and shut the PC off I had no idea what it was thinking it was the psu not enough power or to many hard drives with this new external one I have but I've done stuff like changing from legacy csm boot to the new one and fixed those issues but I still get my PC cycling at boot which can last 1 -5 mins sometimes and then the power cut offs during game play only in rust so far.

So what I have done now is turn overclocking completely off but I noticed with HWMonitor that the temps even after turning overclocking off had hit 95 degrees on the gpu or the cpu both had hit a max of 85 - 95. So i'm assuming that my whole issue the whole time has been that and not enough cooling.

I wanted to ask what cooling should I get as I'm terrible at it, I've researched it and I was thinking over getting an AIO 360mm on for the front but then can I take the current rgb fans that are pre installed on the front and use them in the rear and top slots or would I need to get a specific kind of exhaust 120mm fan to fit in?

I have a phanteks eclpse P400A with the rgb fans at the front but no other fans at the back and top currently and the cpu fan is the default 5600x amd one with an open 3 fan gpu.

- What my PC currently looks like it sits under my deck on that holder there if that makes any difference

If any have any ideas I'd appreciate it going insane right now lol

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2nMwHz -Pretty much the parts I have in but not that exact gpu still a 6900xt

These are the fans I was condsidering with 2 at the top and 1 at the back - if i can't use my current fans that are at the front and move them to the back

A 360 AIO may be overkill for 6 core CPUs, 240 or 280 would do just fine. For GPU only case ventilation matters.
As for case ventilation it's size and fan placement that counts most, fans only for noise and looks.

Ok so i could leave my front fans where they are get a 240 280 and put it at the top and also get an exhaust fan for the back?
