Had my computer for about a year. Has consistently high CPU temp. (70 degrees) while my System temp is consistently 28 degrees.

Both sides are off, it has a water cooling system going from the main fan to the CPU (i7).

I tried to bring it downstairs, but that actually made it jump to 72 degrees. It has three internal fans, two 200m and one regular exhaust fan size (the two big fans are stock, the CPU fan is Noctua).

Other specs:
Radeon 7850
Gigabyte Z87-DH3P mobo
Corsair 1050w
Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600mhz

How did you apply thermal paste?

Did you tighten the CPU cooler enough?

What CPU cooler do you have?

It sounds like the water cooled heat sink/pump may not be making good contact with the CPU's heat spreader. Or poor thermal paste application. Is this one you built or one that was pre-built? What is the make/model of the water cooler?

It is a pre-built mobo, everything else is added by me/cannibalized from my last rig (which actually caught fire). The water cooler is a Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, also pre-built on to the CPU. I got the Hydro because I did not want to take any chances of a repeat of my rig going up in literal smoke.

One of the tubes is twisted like a water hose that has pressure building up, so I will try untwisting it.

YES! The tubes must be kink free and not twisted or pinched. Otherwise the flow will be restricted.
