    I recently have been having issues where my CPU is running hot inexplicably.

    I’m not pushing any new boundaries or anything like most of you more skilled users but I am just seeking your input to see if you all can lend me some aid.

    I am running the 7700K with a modest overclock which has never been an issue thermally until the past month.

    My CPU temps idle around 50 Celsius which does not concern me as much even though I used to idle around 42 Celsius. The main problem is when put under load the system quickly climbs to around 94-96 Celsius within a short 5 minute stress test and sometimes I even notice micro stutters even though HWInfo claims no thermal or power throttling detected.

    I do live in South Florida but we have air conditioning and keep the home at 23 Celsius.

    I have disassembled the computer and did a thorough cleaning of the vapor chamber and fans with compressed air and isopropyl alcohol.

    I have applied new Conductonaut liquid metal between the CPU die and IHS and Kryonaut between the IHS and heatsink.

    I have reset the bios and ran it at defaults with negligible differences.

    I am out of ideas as far as where to look next. I have always kept up maintenance on a yearly basis and have had no issues for nearly 3 years.

    Did you clean out the fin stack too?

    Yes I did. Fin stacks, ventilation holes in the chassis, wiped the fan blades down with isopropyl alcohol. I took the time to make it all spotless before reassembly.

    I'd double check the fitment is still just so.

    Did you use Kryonaut between the IHS and heatsink before the new paste application?

    It originally came with IC Diamond however I did switch out to Kyronaut as I was maintaining it over the years so it isn't a recent change.

    Do you run fans on auto or full blast at FN+1?

    Have you checked the fitment like I suggested? 0.5mm can make 12C differences in temperatures.

    Yes, I took it back apart to check coverage and pressure looks good over the CPU

    Yeah when I stress test I always run the fans at maximum

    Are you well versed with contact patterns? I ask because some say it's fine when it's not.
