Just to start I'm not too knowledgeable about pcs and this pc I'm talking about is a pre-build from PCSpecialist I've had for almost 2 years now.

Specs.
Intel Core i5 10600K @ 4.10GHz
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. TUF GAMING Z490-PLUS
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
32Gb 3000MHz RAM

So the problem is that yesterday I was playing a game and I noticed my pc was being really loud so I opened up speccy and saw that my CPU was a 95 celsius and it was idling at around 70-74 celsius. Whereas before it would be in that 70-74 Celcius range under full load. I don't have clear tubes for my water cooling however I can feel that one of the tubes is hot and the other is cold while the pc is running so im not sure that the water cooling is the problem. I have never reapplied thermal paste so that will probably be a reason for higher temps but I don't see how that would explain such a sudden jump. This happened once before and it seemed to just go away after I turned my pc on its side and was playing around with the water cooling tubes to try and feel the temperature from them but this time it's not going away.

Thanks for any advice in advance :)

this usually means some type of blockage whether it be debris or just some bubbles.
if the pump was dead you'd be noticing higher temperatures while idling.

you can either attempt maneuvering the radiator, pump, and tubes around again to free this potential blockage
or since this isn't first time this issue may have arisen you may want to contact customer support from the distributor and see if they'll offer a replacement.

what AIO is it; make & model?
and how is it installed; radiator placement & fan orientation?

The AIO Is a PCS FrostFlow 240 series

Hopefully the picture tells you what you need to know :)

It is. Once a loop is acclimated, both tubes will be roughly the same temp to touch (they are only 2-3°C different) because the coolant will be all one temp, not the actual energy carried by the coolant.

Sounds like you have a flow blockage or pump is not pumping (busted diaphragm) even if the motor is spinning.

You have no flow, the hot tube is just super saturated coolant with additional heat transferring farther down the pipe
