So recently I picked up a used H100i Extreme Performance and after putting it in on load im getting up to 100 degrees!

 

Is there a possibility this is to do with thermal paste as I have very old thermal paste on my cpu and have ordered an Arctic MX-2.

 

Touching the pump, they both vibrate so im guessing they're doing their job?

did you not apply new thermal paste when you installed the cooler becuase that would not be a very smart idea

I ordered thermal paste but I have to wait for it to arrive, will it make a big impact?

only in the same way driving a car without any coolant would make a big impact

What would I average with thermal paste since I wanted to do at least some overclocking?

i think put the paste on first and make sure you havent already killed the cpu off before you think about any OC

fwiw as long as safety features left on in bios it should throttle itself sufficiently to prevent thermal damage (I wouldn't personally rely on that though)

yeah those temp monitor systems are SUPPOSED to work , nobody ever said they always work , cpu's have to die somehow and we're getting a firsthand look at how it happens lol
