Hi Guys,

First time poster so hopefully I ask the right questions in the right forum - This could go in Coolers or GPU or just problems..

The story so far...

I have a PC that I use quite regularly and up until now the spec was -

Fatality z68 Motherboard
16gb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Ram
i5 2500k
2x 660Ti in SLI
Corsair Hydro H100i v2 CPU water Cooler

along with the other bits SSD etc.

I fancied updating the graphics card and got hold of a ROG 1060 6GB Strix at a cracking price to replace the ageing 660s. It all went in fine booted up as normal but then a problem.

Even though the CPU usage would not go above 20% within minutes the temperature was showing at 92c for the CPU and the fan to the radiator for the water cooler was going crazy - The temp before never really went above 40c at full whack. I thought perhaps it was a loose connection when I swapped the GPU out so checked everything, reseated the CPU with new Arctic MX-2 paste but still on boot it went straight up to 80c then progressed up to 92c. Nothing felt warm to the touch and it didn't shut down.

I got a bit annoyed to say the least thinking this should've been an easy quick job so decided to swap the 1060 out and put in a 780 I had but had never been in this PC before. Exactly the same thing happened again! Strange.

I then put the 1060 back in , ook the Corsair off and put on a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 to try filter out the problem a and the temps are running steadily as I type this at 21c and when I stress tested it briefly and then Fallout 4 on in Ultra with HD mods ran around a bit it never went above 40c.

I guess my question is - Does anyone know why there is a seeming conflict with the GPU and Cooler? Or have I fried the cooler somehow? (It is under warranty I think? Unless installing it makes the warranty void - I would need to check) The PC was working fine all day logged in remotely from work with the Corsair water cooler before I swapped out the GPU. I'm three hours or so of my life down the pan and none the wiser.

Thanks for any suggestions they are greatly appreciated.

AIO has died a death
Pump has failed
Good luck getting anything out of Corsair, they are a pain.
Yeah I thought that. What would've caused it do you think? Just in case I ever do the same procedure again I wouldn't wan't to make the same mistake again.
Thanks for the speedy reply
