I've completed a new build but am having some problems during boot. Within 10 to 30 seconds of switching on the machine I get a warning message in screen stating that the CPU is overheated and the system turns itself off. I understand why it switches off of course, but am not sure why it is over heating. Any thoughts on what the possible causes of a virtually immediate overheat on first boot coUld be?
I am using the ROG ASUSRampage IV extreme with a CORSAIR H100 cooler on an i7 3820 processor, all mounted in a corsair obsidian 800d case with corsair AX1200 gold PSU And 16GB Corsair Vengenace 1600 RAM , 2 x 240GB INTEL 520 SSD and a basic Liteon DVD RW.
Everything appears to be working normally until shuts down, all fans are spinning, the end of the h100 connected tot the processor lights up andseemsto before. My first thought was that perhaps I hadn't fastened the h100 cooling block all the way down to the processor so it wasn't making contact but when I removed I can see the thermal paste has been spread by the contact between the plates. Any other ideas much appreciated!!!
