Hi,

move recently upgraded some parts in my pc ( cpu mother and ram +an all-in-on liquid)
I7-8700k
Aorus gaming 7
Ddr4
Corsair m115i
And now I’ve checked the temperatures on speccy and it’s over heating a lot on idle tasks. The fans seem to be blast air into the case and it’s cold but the cpu isn’t getting cooled enough, could I have applied the thermal paste incorrectly?

The pump splits into two which then have an adapter which puts them in one and going into my cpu fan slot next to the cpu, however the is a slot at the bottom that says sys_fan_pump so I unsplit them and put them into two separate slots? And then it also going into the sata cable and usb slot
