Summary

How to resolve the overheating issue when using MSI MAG CORELIQUID 240R / 360R liquid coolers

Description

Observed an abnormal heat dissipation using MSI MAG CORELIQUID 240R / 360R liquid cooler. Example: Processor temperature is higher than 60°C while idle and the cooler is properly seated with thermal paste applied between the processor and the cooler.

Resolution

MSI announced that per their preliminary investigation, they identified a small portion of the liquid coolers produces sediment that can cause a blockage. This, however, will not cause any damage to your system since the processors are equipped with a protection mechanism against overheating. For more information, refer to MSI Product Announcement.
