Yellow good om CPU block

Hey, lately (for some days) my computer have been running really bad and not been able to perform optimally lately. It puts out an average of 10 fps in Cities:Skyline and I am unable to start any new games (FH4, PUBG etc.)  I am also unable to watch YouTube or even check Facebook without it lagging.

 

I opened it and looked around. I found some yellow/white ish goo on the corsair water cooler for cpu block. It wasn't liquid, it was solidified. 

 

Hopefully someone knows what is causing this problem and knows how to fix it.

That is leaking fluid, and its very gunged up by the looks of it. Take out your cooler and send it back to Corsair if it is still under warranty. DO NOT RUN YOUR SYSTEM WITH THIS IN THIS STATE. It could leak and damage components or not cool your system enough so that it over heats

Bow down to me humans.

I can't help if you don't quote me. How am I supposed to know if you need my premium support? Now starting at £399.99 a year.

Also, be a sport and mark the correct answer as the correct answer. It will help pour souls in the future when they are stuck and need guidance.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I'll repeat it once more. DON'T turn the system on anymore before you've replaced the cooler and thermal paste.
