    Hello, I recently replaced my PSU due to shutdown issues and my desktop ran fine in the store after the replacement. After i left the store and came home, I encountered a heating issue with my CPU Intel i5-6600k reaching about 87C. This was never normal for my computer even during full load, as it only reached about 65C.
    Replacement my 650 that was busted with a Cooler Master Masterwatt Lite 600.

    I have tried these things:
    I have replaced the thermal paste and cleaned the CPU/heat sink.
    Mounted the CPU cooler back on in a star-like pattern slowly tightening. (Top left, bottom right, etc)
    I have thoroughly cleaned my computer with compressed air.
    Wire management is good to go, since i have OCD, so airflow shouldn't be the issue.
    The radiator from the liquid cooler is cleaned out also.

    Thank you peeps for any help you can offer.

    Ok, check the fans are connected to the correct headers on the motherboard, particularly the Cpu one.
    Check the pump connector as well.

    Ahh, I've made that mistake before and my computer wouldn't even boot until the CPU fan connector was in the right spot. So, I am sure they're correct.

    You're welcome. I will probably be gone when you get back.

    In the meantime I've read that Intel cpu coolers can be difficult to fit so I would check that too.

    What exact liquid cooler do you have installed?
    Next what exact pw supply was installed?

    I see you have a liquid cooler, it is possible the pump has died, is it plugged into a pump connector on the motherboard? USB connector for pump communications ?

    That is what I am thinking; either the pump is not plugged in OR it has failed.
    Once he posts the exact brand/model# of the cooler, we can see if there is monitoring software for the cooler.

    Doing this for the 4th time had some success with the temps, but I think what the peeps down below said makes sense also. Instead of 87C, it sits around 76c with a small load. Like 29% cpu usage according to task manager.

    Hmm, I lost the box or trashed it awhile back... I believe its
    SilverStone Technology Tundra Series TD02-SLIM All in One Liquid CPU Cooler Cooling, Black, RL-TD02-SLIM. (Sorry had to copy and paste after i found the right one.)
    and new PSU is Cooler Master Masterwatt Lite 600 watts. Trying to find the receipt for both items..

    The manual for that cooler is not all that great however it appears to show a 12V molex type pw connector for the pump. This would have been removed when the pw supply was installed. Are you sure the pump is connected?
