Nope. Might want to plug in pump. Hope your CPU isn’t fried!

It’ll thermal throttle and thermal shutdown before he kills it.

But yeah check to make sure the pump is plugged in and isn’t dead

If the pump is dead, then RMA the cooler. The pump should come out of he block itself, and be either a USB 2.0 header, or 3/4 pin fan header.

That is the pump/water block. There should be a cord coming out if it somewhere, or the liquid is stagnant and won’t move heat.

What? Some have a valve to drain it, but you don’t want to do that. The only reason you would want to replace the liquid is after several years and it starts to not work well.

I was having the same issue, i7-8700k? I had a H100i v2 and switched over to a Kraken X62. I just ran 3Dmark Time Spy and the CPU only got to 49c with the GPU at 74c. Im Running a Meshify C with 3 ML120s exhausting and 2 ML140s on the Front mount Rad.

That means the pump is either dead or not plugged in.

OP does mention that it "sometimes" hits 100c. If the pump is plugged in and working then what CPU do you have? Also what voltage and multiplier is it set to? Or is it on stock settings?

Boot your system and lay your ear on the water block if you cant hear moving water, its dead.
