alright well i built my new computer. everything booted up just fine, but when bios comes up it tells me my cpu is overheating. i have an i7 unlocked LGA2011. and i also have a corsair h100 and it turns on and everything but thats the only thing wrong with it. anything i have to do? do i have to put water in it or what? im stuck.

You should not have to put water in your Corsair H100 which is self contained. I would remove and reattach the waterblock there and see if you can get a better mating - you'll need to replace your thermal compound once removed - Arctic Silver 5 is a highly recommended compound. I would think that should work

yeah, what is a safe temperatur the cpu should be at. ifa cpu overheats will the computer turn off? i have the sabertooth x79 and the bios menu keeps telling me its overheating. is the heat past already applied on the h100

Yes, there is a grey layer of thermal material (TIM) on the waterblock when you recieve it. Once the waterblock has heated up on the CPU and then removed (as in to re-seat it), the TIM needs to be replaced.
Edit: the cpu should shut itself down at a thermal threshold but I have no clue what it is for your processor.

well is the bios messing up or is that even possible. when a processor overheats does it turn off the computer? what are the symtoms of a bad processor? i know its alot of questions but im kinda new to this.

Overheating could be a sign of a bad processor - the list is too extensive to go into here. Is the warning that the CPU is overheating or is the warning of a CPU fan failure

it says the proseccor is overheating. when i go into bios it says its at 177f. can a processor even heat up that fast?

Oh yeah, processors can heat up real quick - something you'll be amazed to see as you monitor your temps with the H100. My computers rarely run less than 100% but when they do, I go from my standard 60C to 36C in about 3 seconds. Conversely, when I go from idle to 100% temps change (and stabilize) in about the same amount of time... sorry, I digress.
What model i7 processor do you have?

i have the i7 - 3930k LGA2011 unlocked

is it most likly a processor problem or a fan/water cooler problem?

I would be most suspicious of the H100 here since it is mechanical but I'm at a loss as to how to isolate the two since you don't have a stock HSF to try.

Hi :) 

It is NOT the Bios faulty...

All the best Brett :)

After re-reading this, I take back my prime suspicions of the H100, I'm most suspicious of the waterblock mounting, then the H100, then the CPU. I would really look to remount the waterblock first.

thanks guys you really helped me out a bunch. with the h100 and my i7, what is a decent temp the the cpu should be running at?
