Max CPU fan speed then crash.

Hello forum goers!

I'm having trouble with my computer and it might be tied to my recently new Cooler Master Sideon CPU cooler.

Last night when I was playing ARMA II, I heard my CPU fan start spinning at very high RPM. I alt tabbed out and glimpsed at my system tray where Core temp resides, it stated I was at 177* F then crashed.

I tried booting it up, I got past the BIOS menu then 30 seconds into the windows boot it crashed.

Tried it two more times same result within 30 minutes.

So far I've :

1) Tried a cold boot after 2 hours. (3 times)
2) Removed water cooler then reapplied thermal paste.

After re-installing water cooler the time after turning on just extended time where I could log in and access desktop for 1-2 minutes while monitoring CPU temp before crash.

Currently in the process of putting on a new CPU cooler.


Any help will be greatly appreciated!

  1. Your doing what I'd recommend - putting on a new cooler.
  2. Could be the pump on your water cooler broke. See how it runs with the new one. Fingers crossed for you!
