TJMaxx should be 99c on the 2500k.

Sounds like something is setup wrong on that so maybe the AIO will help out.

AIO is all in one. Short for all in one liquid cooling.

Some call it CLC as well. Closed loop cooler.

Coffee filter or Q-tips. I prefer Q-Tips and 91% isopropyl alcohol.

The reason why my CPu was hitting such high temps was because the stock fan pins in the back, behind the motherboard were cracked and loosened, thus decreasing the contact points on the processor to cool it. It's amazing that it didn't get to the point where it would start smoking

Update: The H80i has been installed and it is GLORIOUS. idle temperatures are 42C/107F in an 85F environment (my room). and hits a max of 55C/131F under load. big improvement. thanks a lot guys! <3

No doubt it would be a huge change. Even my H50 is a ridiculous change over stock lol.
