I am assembling a new computer with a new Phenom II X6 3.2G CPU. CPU is cooled by a Corsair H50 water cooler. I noticed the radiator is very hot. I can't touch it for more than a second. Is this normal?
(Right now I am troubleshooting the MB where no video is detected so the CPU is not doing any work. Yet it produced a lot of heat)
when you have the computer turned on do you hear any beeping or anything. if you do hear beeping its your ram mostly. first shut off yoru computer(sorry some people are really stupid.). if you can try pulling out the cpu cleaning it off with some arctic 5 cleaner then re apply the thermal paste and put the cooler back on it. if it still does it try swapping gout the cpu for something else. put the stock cooler back on it for all the test. until you figure out what the problem is.
