Hello, I have recently bought a Scythe Katana 4 cooler. I installed it and everything and now it seems that the cpu is overheating under load. The temperature is jumping like crazy and I have 7 fans installed in the Zalman Z11plus case. Any suggestions?

Yes, it's likely that you improperly installed the cooler or incorrectly applied the thermal paste.

Those temps are very high. Try reapplying the thermal paste (Maybe a new brand?). I would also check that all the fans are working correctly and that a cable hasn't come loose .

This is not the picture of my z11plus, i just used another to show you my fan setup and airflow. I aplied the thermal paste, i mounted the cooler correctly, it is fixed in place. I used the Scythe thermal paste, maybe its not that good?

your airflow looks good, how did you apply the thermal paste when you did it?

I used a card to evenly dispence thermal paste on the cpu.

I just reworked the wiring and saw that some screws were loose, but not the ones that connect to the motherboard. I also reaplied thermal paste differently and everything. Now it idles at 30°C and reaches maximum 56°C under heavy load. Thank you all. PROBLEM SOLVED!!
