The fan is turning on all the time and it is the fan connected to the liquid cooling system. I am thinking the system needs replaced. The system still works fine but I installed a monitor and the CPU is always 66 to 69 idle and heats up when playing Minecraft. mid 70's and then fan sounds like a jet taking off. Ideas where to get a replacement or how to fix it?

There are tutorials on YouTube that explain and show how it is done. 

 

You will need a good quality thermal interface material, an appropriate cleaner to remove the old Thermal pad, and patience. 

Do not scratch the processor or the processor fact processor contact area!

I have been using their Ceramique2 for as long as they have been making it. ArctiCleaner makes cleaning off the remnants of the thermal pad simple..

Providing the OS would help.

 

I just checked and see that the latest OS supported version would be Windows 8.

 

It may be time to have the thermal interface material changed and verify that the dust inside has been removed.

 

The fan is controlled by a ▲T algorithm in the BIOS firmware.

It is actually Windows 10. 

 

How do you change the  thermal interface material?

HP Recommended

You take off the waterblock on cpu, clean of dried thermal paste, apply new and mount waterblock back on. Should help some. While the system is open it probably wouldn't hurt to blow the dust out using either a compressor or canned air.
