Cpu overheating

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently build a pc with for a friend, but I couldn't finish it since not al the components arrived. But now his cpu keeps overheating. And since am not there I have basically no idea what is wrong. Am pretty sure there is no problem with mounting pressure. But I am not sure if there was a plastic sheet on the cooler. If there was I didn't remove that. Does anyone know if the wraith spire comes with a plastic cover on the baseplate?

no, its a large plastic cover over the whole base, no way you could have forgotten to remove that as you wouldnt have been able to mount the cooler with it on there.
