My Pc is good but messed up

Status
Not open for further replies.
So I bought a pre built pc. I know that’s my first problem! So I changed out my aio as there’s died on me. It’s a cooler master 120 aio. I put my own thermal past on it made sure everything was going to work. I turn my pc on and it’s able to boot but my cpu and dram lights turn on for a sec then turn off. Then my boot light turns and off real quick. Then my vga light turns on and off same as the boot light. Me not knowing anything about pcs goes and plays games and notice my cpu gets really really hot like 96 degrees Celsius hot. I’ve been looking at my aio connections to make sure they are all good. My lines have water running through them as I can feel it a ton in one line and a little on the other line. I would love to hear what you have to say and please ask any questions that you need.

you say things turn on and off quick you play games ?
Does the computer run?
If yes

Can you Download and run and then post. https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:​

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.​

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot dialog box. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

Have a read of this and tell me what you think.
Step 1) Buy a Thermal Paste. I use Arctic Silver Click On Me BUT after watching this best Thermal Click On Me you could try This Click On Me
Step 2) Remove Power cord and open Computer and touch metal to Earth yourself or Buy this Click On Me
Static is a big killer of computers.
Step 3) Remove fan and heat sink Click On Me for Intel OR Click On Me for AMD If not held on like this then could be screwed on or post back with pic.
Step 4) Clean CPU ( DO NOT REMOVE) and bottom of heat sink using Methylated spirits or Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
Step 5) Apply Thermal Paste Click On Me to CPU Everyone has a different method.
The aim is a nice covering Too little = Bad, Too much = Bad (Think Goldilocks and the three bears). Pic attached
Step 6) Reattach heatsink/fan (after the fan and fins are clean) Click On Me for intel or Click On Me for AMD
Step 7) Apply Power.
Step 8) Cross fingers and turn on computer and Test. Then close computer backup.

If no static wrist band ( I would recommend for a newbie) Always touch metal to earth yourself.
Look in my Signature for my main 2 rules.
Cheers

The lights are supposed to do that.
First thing is turn your power profile from High performance to balanced
Have you overclocked your ram in the bios if yes set bios back to default.
Are you running the AIO power from the CPU fan connector?
I know you replaced the thermal paste.
How much did you use too little = fail too much = fail.
