This may be the wrong place to post this, so forgive me if it is and please point me in the right direction! I built a computer a couple of years ago for all my computing needs (gaming included) and had a pretty decent rig for the time. About a week ago the Corsair H60 I had cooling the CPU decided to leak on my motherboard/cpu. I wouldn't have noticed this if it had not stopped cooling my cpu. I was getting temperature readings of 97 degrees celcius from my cpu (overclocked to 4.4GHz).
Anyway, I replaced the H60 with the stock cooler that had come with the CPU(i5 2500k) as a temporary replacement. I used my own thermal paste that I had left from when I built the PC with the H60, if that matters. When I started the PC and went into the BIOS to check the temperatures, they quickly started climbing from around 68 degrees celcius back up to the upper 80's. I then went in and removed all overclocking which put my clock speed at 3.3GHz. After this, I also placed a desk fan near the open case to help with airflow just in case. Even with all of this I am seeing temperature readings for the CPU at 71-72 degrees celcius. The temperature of the rest of the case is 24 degrees celcius. Could it be that the CPU is permanently damaged as a result of the H60 leaking on it? Or from being overclocked after the cooling had stopped and increasing its temps to 97 degrees celcius?
