Do you clean out your reservoir? It's possible that you might have an algae or mineral build up in your lines.

If blowing all your cooling fins clean doesn't do the trick, try reseating all heat-sinks. You very well could have a void in your thermal paste causing poor heat transfer.

What is the exact warning you're being given? Could also be a bad sensor, they're not flawless.

Another issue that I've seen with liquid cooling is having your pump's impeller shred itself, or having something gum up a connector and restrict flow. Air pockets can also give you problems. What water cooling system are you using? You haven't forgotten to keep it topped up with fluid, have you?

how does one go about in removing clamp with out breaking small clamps. also cost for coolant. also do i need to remove whole thing from mother board or can just take part of it off and replace it. first time i ever used one. so i need the best option to fix it. or i just take to local computer store that not best buy or staples to get it fixed. not sure how hard it is to remove the system to clean out lines and replace fluid with out harming the chip. also not sure if just power supply acting up since it could cause liquid cooling system to fail too. also if it is the power supply could i use same wire in there buy more powerfull one since i have 850watt. was thinking about going to 1000watt one so if i ever up grade my graphics card down then line i would be fine.
