    I finally built myself a new gaming pc today, and it turned out great! I've been installing everal games, prgrams, etc for a while and installed MSI afterburner. I noticed my 6 core cpu was always at 97 to 100 degreed celsius. I thought that was strange because I'm using a corsair H60 water cooler with an AF120 fan. One strange thing is the LED on the pump is off, and I know those fans aren't the greatest as they're pretty loud but the cpu shouldn't be getting temps that high. The air coming out of the pc is cool so I'm pretty confused. My specs are:

    Intel i5 1600k
    Corsair H60 w/ AF120 fan (using stock thermal paste)
    GTX 1070 founders edition
    Asus prime z370-A
    16gb ddr4 corsair vengeance

    I can send pics if needed

    I’m actually an idiot. The pump wasn’t plugged in. I did that and the temps are high 20s and low 30s now.
