    Hi,

    My computer all of a sudden in the last few days has had a really strange issue. When I start up the computer from it being off for a while, the CPU temperatures will go way above normal. If I simply turn off the computer for about 1 minute, then start it back up, everything is always back to normal.

    I've checked the fans all over the computer, they are spinning correctly. I've tried removing all dust with an air can, nothing changes. My processor is an Intel i5-4690K @ 3.5Ghz. I have a liquid cooler on the CPU that was factory attached which is a CoolerMaster Seidon 120V. Occasionally I hear the liquid inside it pumping, but not very often.

    I'm not sure what is wrong or how to fix this problem.

    Hi and welcome to Computer Help Forums.
    Is the cooler fan plugged into the "CPU_Fan" header on the motherboard?
    Sometimes you'll get a hot error when a fan isn't plugged in there.
    If you have your CPU fan plugged in elsewhere, you can disable that error in the BIOS.

    Check to make sure there is enough fluid in the cooling system.

    Should also make sure there is no air in the lines. When was the last time you did maintenance on the Cooling system?

    It is.
    The cooling system says it doesn't need maintenance for years on the website, and it's barely a year old at this point.

    What are you using to show this information?
    Either you do not have enough water. Could also be when a fan comes on it is hitting something.

    You have checked that everything is tight and attached correctly? Nothing hitting the fan blades.

    These are sealed units and have plenty of water.
    It is normal to hear the rush of water for a short time when circulation starts.
    I have 3 PC's CPU's water cooled.

    Make sure that the radiator fan is plugged in to CPU_FAN and then plug the CPU pump into SYS_FAN1 or 2. Then go into BIOS and set the SYS_FAN power curve as 'disable', this will ensure that its running at full speed all the time, which it needs to.
