So I was just starting to think that my H60 pump was broken after my CPU temps started to increase 1deg every second until i shut the computer off.
It started after I tilted the radiator a bit to blow out some dust, so that explanation made sense, but when I started up my computer today, i found something strange.
The temps seem to now idle around 46deg (when before they were around 27deg) and shoot up to around 55 when any load is applied at all (like opening chrome), and even further after I started to type this, now idling around 59-65deg
The 3 conclusions I came up with were:
1) my pump is still failing, but just not completely (I don't know how likely this is)
2) The Part of the CPU that measures temperatures is messed up, but if so why did it coincide with me messing with the radiator (unlikely)
3)Somehow in moving the radiator, I jostled the CPU plate and it loosened the thermal paste (unlikely as it is fastened securely, besides, thermal paste is like glue and would not allow it to move anyways)
Things I have checked:
1) the fan is pointed the proper direction
2) nothing else changed, didn't move any fans or anything
3) It is not software that is causing it, as the problem happens in the bios
3) I have checked temperatures in different software such as core temp and HW monitor.
4) the pump is plugged into PWR fan, so there is no control over fan speed, it always runs at 100%
I am really stumped here, if anyone could come up with another idea it would at least give me a place to start.
-I have an FX-6350, and have owned my H60 for around 6-8 months with no issues whatsoever.
-I have contacted corsiar, but as I contacted them yesterday (friday) the soonest I can hear back from them is monday, and even if that does happen it probably won't be resolved for a week while the emails go back and forth, and then another 3-5 days for them to ship me a new one if for some reason they decide to do that, so I am just trying to figure out my options here.
-I could put back the stock cooler, but I really don't want to as I would have to buy thermal paste, and it's a hassle to do
