Hi, I built my pc 9 months ago, and I've been using it mainly for gaming and some CAD programs. About 2 weeks ago, it started crashing and rebooting through blue screens many of the times. I've been troubleshooting my pc and realized that my idle cpu temps are between 45-55c degrees. However, while gaming and during stress tests, the cpu temps rise very quickly to 100c and thermal throttles through all the test or gaming session time. I tried deactivating XMP, and high performance power manangement profile on windows, setting fans and pump to maximum values and cpu temps continue to rise to 100c. I would really aprecciate some help in order to solve this issue.


Thank you very much!

I suspect your AIO is the culprit. The 240r I know has a recall, due to gunk building up in the fin stack, of the water block. The 360r may have the same issue.
If the issue is indeed related to my actual AIO, the best option is replacing it? If it is, which AIO or cooling method should I get on?
