Yay, hi guys n gals,
i7 3.2gHz 960 (Corsair water cooler), 24gb 1600mhz RAM, Sabertooth X58 motherboard, 2x128gb SSD primary drive, 2x1tb HDD secondary on Raid, NVIDIA GeForce FX5600 1.5gb graphics.
I work in 3D modelling and animation. I had my system custom built to cope with the high end files I create. My usually stable system has suddenly begun to overheat on the CPU (100 degrees on SIW) causing the system to shut down without notice. I have reseated the memory modules, cleaned all the PC's fans and filters, paying specific attention to the Corsair watercooling system, ensuring their is sufficient cooling paste to seat the thing to the CPU, checked all the disk connections and made sure the Corsairs water pump is working.
Is there any way in which I can test the CPU to positively verify that it is overheating? I have SIW installed which lets me check pretty much anything relative to system operations. Any help you guys n gals can give would be hugely appreciated.
A very happy New Year to you all.
