Make sure you have the proper ventilation and cooling.

 

As long as you are under 100C, you are ok.

Ventilation and cooling are brand new as well. I have a brand new corsair h60 and 3 ventilation funs

How is the H60 controlled? Using a fan speed controller on the board? If this is the case, have you verified that the fan speed control programming makes sense? This is typically managed in the BIOS.

 

Hope this helps,
