    Problem my Computer shows for the AIO Pump N/A
    my build is:
    i7 7700k (CPU)
    Asus strix Z270F Gaming (Motherboard)
    GTX 1080 Ti (GPU)
    Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 (AOI Cooler)
    I don't know what to do I already opend it and cleaned it but it still shows up 90 to 100 °C and I also put new thermal paste. And when I'm trying to start the Computer it shows "CPU OVERHEAT ERROR" I don't know what to do I need Help.

    Is your AOI cooler hooked up properly and is it working?
    Have you tried a stock air cooler?

    Other then that, I can suggest delidding the CPU and reapplying thermal paste.

    Edit: it could also be a sensor malfunctioning.
    Is the CPU/cooler actually hot or is it at ambient temp?

    Somewhere, over there!
    Ran into this issue with my Corsair H100i. Turns out my radiator was fugged. Even after checking connections, cables and fans, I still would boot up to an instant BSOD or a super sloooowww computer. Replaced the radiator with one from my buddy's old system and it worked fine. Chances are @Retik your cooler is acting up. Unless it's brand new, then you may have a faulty CPU. Had one of those, too. My first 4790k would idle @60c and at load would hit 95c...

    sounds like the pump is not moving the fluid...
