So hey guys. I got a problem where my computer was having overheating problems when playing games. One time I loaded a game and the screen went black and blue artifacts starting appearing on the monitor. So I reapplied the thermal paste on my h80 corsair liquid cooling system and it idled at 46c (couldn't play games). I thought the liquid cooling system was dying so I got a h80i but I was getting the same temps. Then one day it went up to 80c and the computer could no longer be cooled. I got a nh-d14 just to make sure and it goes straight to 80c after boot up. So I gave up and installed the h80 back in the computer and now my Asus sabertooth x58 is saying CPU fan error on boot up while nothing cools the CPU anymore. My processor is an intel i7 950. is it possible the motherboard got damaged from heat or Is it a psu problem. Btw the CPU fan header works but it still gives me the error
