neither of what you just said would cause the problems lol, if the header wasn't plugged in fully, the other usb 2 port would also show issues, and the fact that slight movement makes devices disconnect in the faulty port kinda rules out the header being the culprit, but it was the first thing i checked before i even posted. the cooler issue is likely a failing pump or a glitch in core temp.
if the cooling plate+pump combo needed a thermal paste reapply and a remount then i'd be seeing some seriously worrying temperatures, at windows startup the cpu was at 19*C, and as of right now the cpu is idle at 27*C after a 30 minute warm up, in games and such i see around 35-40*C, and i also ran prime 95 for an hour on the day the shut down happened and the highest i saw was 45*C.
i was asleep when the shutdown happened, i only knew it was coretemp that started the shutdown process because as soon as i got into windows, i trawled through the event viewer logs and saw the shutdown event and the process that initiated it. it's worth noting that the H70 is now around 3 years old and it's had one hell of a buttload of usage, i didn't post because i was asking for help, i posted more as a discussion topic for the most part, and also to see if anyone else has had issues with the usb ports on the front of the scout 2
