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!

Could be the pump on your water cooler broke. See how it runs with the new one. Fingers crossed for you!
