CPU Getting To Hot

Just put the PC together.

Intel I7-6700K w/ Enermax Liqmax II 240. First boot, and got to the UEFI and watch the CPU temps climb to 97c when I decide to shut it off for now. I have 2 120mm fans in the front bringing air in and the 2 120mm fans on the Eneramx setup as exhaust on the top. I also have one 120mm setup as an exhaust on the rear but not hooked up till I get a 4pin splitter.

Not a first time builder but first time for a AIO cooler. I used Noctura NT-H1 for thermal paste.

Why is it getting so hot?

Fixed! The pump actually only has a 3 pin connector, so I had it connected to the wrong 3 pins on the 4 pin plug.

there's definately something wring here

are both the pump and fans plugged into the motherboard?
check to see if your cooler is mounted securely

I have the cooler plugged into CPU fan, and the fans on the radiator plugged into chassis fan.

I just double checked and notice the "Enermax" logo on the pump isn't lit up like it should be, could it not be getting enough power for the CPU pins?

Sounds like the pump's not plugged in.

(Assuming.you have extra thermal paste) take off the cpu cooler and take a picture of how it spread on the cpu die, then link that on imgur or such. That way I can see how it was putting pressure on the cpu.

Duh. So I went to look at everything and noticed I have the 4pin connector off 1 pin (only connected to 3 pins). I have to take the AIO out just to get to it again. So while I'm at i t, whats the best setup for the two 120mm fans for exhaust? Fans on top (pull/attached to case) or fans on bottom (push/attached to radiator). I've read it's easier to clean with the fans on top pulling air out.
