1st guess would be there is a film on the cooler that you forgot to remove before installing it so that there is plastic between the cpu and cooler.

2nd guess would be that the pump isn't working. Either because DOA or maybe missed plugging in something during installation.

3rd guess would be gnomes... but they usually go for underpants instead of your pc.

Thanks for the good laugh!

I'd like to add that you may want to try and remount the cooler (and reapply some thermal paste). It may have been previously mounted badly or not tight enough.

Check AIO pump, can you hear it running? Make sure it is connected to the water pump or CPU header.

Feel the pump hoses, can you feel any circulation.

Make sure that all wires are connected on the cooler: pump, and that both fans are connnected to the motherboard or a fan hub.
