I have no idea what happened, but I'm having some issues.

My main cpu uses a Corsair H100i that I recently had to get RMA'd because the CPU was running at a constant 55c at idle. I'm using NZXT Cam software to monitor my temps, because my GPU is being cooled by a brand new, less then a month old X42 Kraken. I installed my stock Intel cooler and when I turned my rig back on, CAM software is showing my idle GPU temps at 57c now, whereas, before it would idle at 27c. I've double checked all the connections, but I'm literally banging my head against the wall at this point, I can't figure out why it's idling 30c higher than before.

I would use coretemp for CPU temps, and try MSI afterburner or EVGA Precision for GPU temps.

 

How are the fans configured, and how are they being controlled. Are you sure none of the fan wires got knocked out? Or did the cooler get bumped and thus causing the water block to not make perfect contact anymore? Many reasons for this, hard to say what it was.

got some specs? overclocking? cant help with that little information.

Intel Core i7-4790k it's sitting at 4.78ghz, 16 gb's ddr3, GTX 1080ti.

MSI Afterburner is showing the same GPU temps as NZXT CAM software.

I didn't even touch the block on the GPU, as it's a separate AIO entirely. Just noticed my temps skyrocket after I removed the dead Corsair AIO. Currently hovering around 60c at idle.

I mean, all it can be is a GPU load (nothing is stressing it..?), a bad mount job, or a plug undone. Not much else to it, just have to figure out what is wrong... Make sure the fan on the AOI is spinning, make sure the pump is on, and make sure nothing is stressing the GPU at all.

Hmmm, I'll take it apart and double check everything even apply fresh thermal paste before popping it back in my case. Be back in a little bit.

I took it apart, removed the thermal paste, applied new thermal paste and reseated the card. It sounds like the pump is running, I heard a rush of fluid, but being a Closed Loop how can I tell? My idle temps have dropped to 52c, but that's still way hotter than the idle temps earlier this morning when it was sitting pretty at 27c.

Solid advice, I went ahead and held the rad above the pump and sounds of air bubbles raced through. Idle temps back to 25c. Huge weight off my shoulders. Thanks for being persistent about double checking everything.

Yup, air in the pump is no bueno. Will ruin your day every time lol.

Closed Loop how can I tell?

First off, glad you got it figured out.

 

and you mean how can you tell when none of your parts are see through,   99% of custom looper's run closed loops,   we just have clear things
