Weird CPU rising temperature

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok the weirderst thing happened yesterday.

I had just installed witcher 3 and was playing with the settings namely full screen mode and windowed so I was closing and restarting the game couple of times.

So I put fullscreen mode but then the typical black screen issue happened when I start the game and see a black screen nothing happening and I couldn't get out of it with any keyboard combo that i pressed so I decide to use the pc power button that puts it to sleep, then press it again to wake up and I am in windows lock screen where I log in and start task manager to terminate game


The moment I did that CPU temperatures start rising (i5 4690K).. I check HWmonitor which is always open and CPU load is sth like 10-20% in one or two cores, voltages normal like 1.01 vcore and temps still continued to rise. Cooler is seidon 120v with two fans in push/pull everything in bios is in optimized defaults, no OC

Normally fans immediately started increasing speed as temps were rising but that didn't stop the temperature from rising more I even reached 90-95C (that I have only seen once when I overclocked to 4.7GHz.) No temperature problems before since I built this pc.

I pushed the power button once more to put computer to sleep then i pushed again and entered windows everything back to normal


Have you encountered similar thing?Could it be some sensor error here ,MB related?

Sounds like when you woke the PC from sleep one time, the motherboard didn't provide power to the CPU Pump fan header (CPU 4-pin PWM fan header) most likely. Do you have any msi software installed that changes the fan settings?

I guess it could be that...
Well the MB has only two fan headers .The pump is plugged in the System fan header and uses a 3-pin connector so it has always worked on max up till now.. The fans use the CPU 4-pin header with a splitter and are PWM controlled
I don't have any msi software installed that changes the fan settings anymore..The only fan curve is the default one from BIOS
