I have a system problem I'm stumped with. My system is overheating and shutting down. At first I thought it was the SSD drive because I was getting disk errors, but now the system won't get past post.
My system is a i7-3770K, 32gb ddr3 g.skill ram, OCZ SSD drive, Geforce video card and a Corsair h100i liquid cooler and Asus Republic of Gamers Maximus Gene V mobo.
I just cleaned the thermal paste off the radiator and processor and applied more Arctic Silver but after booting, if I just sit in BIOS and watch the temps, it starts at 30°C and steadily climbs to ~90°C and shuts down. I've turned off all mobo performance options and all overclocking but it made no difference.
Is this the cooler flaking out?

Corrected processor per OP's note below. This will make it easier for those "starting at the beginning".
