So yesterday my desktop wasn't starting up (powering on for a few seconds, then shutting off, no display)
Anyway, I fixed the issue by re-seating the CPU/heatsink and now it powers up fine, however right after you log into Windows a BSOD shows up. When it restarts it boots into the BIOS and the CPU climbs to about 75 celcius, so I assume the BSOD is showing up from a CPU overheat problem.
Only problem is is that with the side case off there is no warm air coming from the heatsink assembly. I have assured that the heatsink is fastened tightly, not sure if maybe there is a temperature sensor issue?

Did you reapply Thermal Paste?
I didn't, do you think that could of caused such a huge spike in temperature though?
