    I dont know where the instructions are been trying to align this for some time now

      Best way to approach this in that case is fit one corner screw in the hole closest to the CPU, then do the same in the opposite corner. If that 2nd screw doesnt allign to the inside hole, you'll need to use the outside ones.

        Just checked the manual online (http://www.coolermaster.com/xresserv...10003716d.html) and they go in the middle hole for socket 1150 (see figure 4)

          Yep i found out after trial and error they went in the middle, managed to reinstall it.

          Bad news: Temperature is still really high 95+, and my computer just keep restarting or shutting down on its own now.... restarts every 2-5 mins.

          Why is it restarting on its own? What should i do next?


          (Btw the pump seems to vibrate a little, but the actual block doesn’t) - from what i can tell

            Is there a chance that, the CPU itself might have an issue?

            It seems unlikely to me that after 10 minutes the CPU gets that hot, without doing much on the computer just browsing. Or is that definably possible given my specs. Intel core i7 4790K 4.4ghz.

            maybe rma?

              There were some videos doing the rounds a few years ago which showed CPUs with no heatsinks on them hitting ~200C in a matter of seconds - before the POST stage of booting up had even completed. So it's very very easy for a CPU to hit that temperature, especially if you're running any sort of program.

                So it could stil just be my cooler. My computer has been on for 2+ hours now with no restart, but temperature is still high. I touched the pipes closer to the cpu and they seem hot aswell.

                  you need a new CPU cooler from those photos it all looks nice and clean.

                  What Ghz is your CPU running at? The CPU will do the best to keep working by lowering speeds when it gets too hot, but the root cause I would suspect is your pumpm based on experience of also having Seidon pumps fail.

                  If you're struggling with getting the cooler aligned, I would also advise that you have someone look at doing the replacement for you.

                    aio only tend to last about 3 years anyway before they pack in.

                      MAx speed is 4ghz. Utilizing around 1-2 just browsing. ive already reapplied the paste and fitted it back in. Problem still exists.

                        if you replaced the cooling you could reuse the fans from the rad to fill the case. you might find that they work better than those which come with the new cooler and use them on it and put those fans in the case instead?

                        the more you have posted make me think it is the pump which has failed more

                        sorry dude.

                          Still, after being around for so long, this is still my air cooler of choice. Be careful on the height and the available width of your case though.

                            Common problem with the aio is the liquid inside evaporates overtime, once you lose fluid the pump starts to overheat an burn out causing it to fail, probably what's happened to yours.

                                Just to add, the evaporation bit also affects custom built water cooling loops too, not just AIO's. I have to top mine up every few months as I lose about an inch of water from the res.
