    Games should be using your GPU more than your CPU. As stated, this is normal.

    I can't find your card on there either. Perhaps they don't have data on that particular card yet so it's not...

    It means that unless the room you're in is 38 degrees Celcius (100+ Fahrenheit) or hotter, your temps are too high for someone using an AIO cooler at stock volts and clocks.

    You should not be...

    Question. You made this statement:

    And then this one:

    These seem to contradict each other.

    Did removing the CPU allow the board to stay on then?
    I also think this could be a power issue,...

    Hmm. It seems slower than you're used to, you mean? Or slower in comparison to something else?

    What exactly is slower? Booting? Login? Loading any programs? Downloads? Surfing?

    A GPU...

    There is far more benefit to liquid cooling than just high FPS, and in fact both a monitor (with a great refresh rate) and some games will limit your FPS to where the higher frame rates you can get...

    NZXT Kraken is an excellent AIO. One of the best. Highly recommended.
    However there is very little difference between the various major brands, so pick one you like the look of and which fits...

    If you intend to OC, then you should go with water cooling. I would reccomend the EK aio kit best, because you can learn to do your own custom loops and hopefully eventually expand. But if you want...

    Yeah, figured you situation was something like that from what you were saying.

    OK, so you say you're willing to suffer with this CPU for now and wait. That makes sense to me. And since you have...

    That's actually a tough question... My gut reaction is always GPU first because games will use that more and yeah, the GTX 900 series is starting to show some age... but they are certainly still...

    If you're not using any liquid cooling then yes, you won't have any issues if you simply disconnect and remove one or all 3 fans.
    Personally, for aesthetics, I would remove all 3 if you're going to...

    On the offchance... it may be an incredibly remote chance, but it's still possible to have gotten two bad CPUs in a row, especially if they were from the same seller and same lot. Have you checked...

    I'm curious... is there a radiator under the fans? Or are they just mounted direct to the back of the case?
    It looks like you're using entirely air cooling, though I can't be sure... is there any...

    Noctua, eh? It still tweaks my OCD that they would pre-apply it... but that is a good paste. =)
    I'd still change it for Kryonaut tho. OCD.

    If it doesn't though, I'm more likely to just live without updating BIOS rather...
