Okay, i'm not joking here: have you tried to do something like this? I know, it looks bad, makes things dirty, yadda yadda yadda, but you'll also have a massive temperature drop doing something like that. It could be a way to hold your old rig together until you can upgrade. I know because i had to do that.

I barely know anything about liquid cooling and I can't say if the TDP (88 W) on a 4790K is accurate or not but it sounds like you should be covered, yeah. (A traditional cooler would probably give you quicker temp drops though and I think that's a good thing.) Did you mess up the installation or something like that? Loose screws? Too tight? What about the cooling paste? Could be lots of things. Check the CPU for bumps or warping. Obvious heat damage but somewhat uncommon. Try another cooler with plenty of fresh paste if you have one. See if there's any difference at all.

The CPU is faulty and needs to be replaced. Core #0 is where the fault is and the CPU will need to be replaced (along with a new MoBo, RAM and AIO Cooler). :cry:

I will be getting a Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core (24 Thread) CPU, a Gigabyte Aorus Pro WiFi X570 AM4 MoBo, 32Gb (2x 16Gb) Crucial Ballistix Sport 3200 DDR4 RAM (set as Dual-Channel), Deepcool Castle 280RGB AIO Cooler (the Corsair H115i won't fit to the Ryzen 9, without a special bracket that is rare to find), and a 500Gb Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 SSD (for my new boot drive). I hope to have the upgrade done and have my rig back within the week, then I will be in the poor house as this upgrade will set me back around $2,000.00AUD. :shock:

At the moment I am using the Acer Predator Helios 300 laptop, but as it's CPU overheats I can't use taxing games or render artwork for my texture pack, although I can use Handbrake and Format Factory on the laptop.

I now added a Ryzen 9 3900X CPU, a Gigabyte Aorus X570 Pro Wifi MoBo, 32Gb of Crucial Ballistix 3200 DDR4 Ram (dual-channel) and I a Deepcool Castle 280RGB AIO Cooler, to my rig. I also got a 500Gb Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 SSD drive and am now running the OS on that. Once I have everything reinstalled, set up, and reactivated I will see how much better performance my 12 core (24 thread) CPU gives when rendering filters for my texture work. For some reason Filter Forge 8 won't add itself to the plugins for Photoshop CC2020 so I have to use Photoshop CC2019 until Adobe fixes this.

I did a few new textures but now have to rest. My country is in lockdown due to COVID-19, and my doctor's surgery was compromised by a patient that lied about their time overseas, so I and the other patients are in isolation. On top of that, I almost died a few weeks ago as my kidney infection went to the extreme leading to septic kidneys and blood poisoning so I was in critical condition in the ICU (First 2 days I was in a resuscitation room), so I am fatigued and on a cocktail of antibiotics, painkillers and muscle relaxants so I am not coping well, and not sleeping or eating properly. Hopefully, all this BS can end and I can get back to work.

Nice work... but light on skull switch is on original sprite in 90°angle. You have 120°

I used an actual skull photo, that I modified, and had to choose one that was public domain to avoid legal issues, that's why the lighting is different.

Skull is good and nice but frame has different light. Looks very nice but overall angle is distort if you have more than one light on one texture... Peace ... I don't mean it wrong. :)
