After a very long time of my PC running perfectly fine, it suddenly was very slow yesterday and crashed multiple times. I di a quick check and it turns out the CPU was at 100 Celsius! I have a water cooling system and I'm not sure what's wrong. The reservoir (I think it was that) looked like it had plenty of water in, but some of the tubes had large either dried out sections or air bubbles. Pictures: click here know what's wrong or how to fix it?

Anybody

Sorry for some reason the link was posted twice and 'Anybody' wasn't in that last sentence.

Purely from an engineering point of view it would seem you have a slight air leak in the system somewhere which has allowed air into the system which has then caused an air lock and thus the fluid does not circulate. I'm not in the least surprised the temp rocketed. If I were you I would contact the manufacturer of the cooling system and ask their advice. It might be special fluid in the system.

you should have a fill port next to the reservoir - the fill port can also be used to vent the air from the system.

I would suggest new hoses (to rule out perishing as providing a route for air to enter) and refill with new fluid. As suggested above, speak to the manufacturer to make sure you get the right hoses and fluid.
