I just installed a new 2700x and B450 strix over my b350 and 1700. I had the cooler before and it worked fine. Now EVGA flow control is telling me my cpu is at over 100C sometimes. Obviously this is wrong because hwinfo and other sources tell me this (and my computer hasnt blown up). What is happening now? I have reinstalled the software. Im running windows 10

Make sure you're using Flow Control Version 2.0.9 (the latest) which is supposed to fix AM4 CPU package temperature error.
 
You can grab it in the EVGA Download Center in the Other Products tab -> Closed Loop Coolers.
 
Uninstall your current version first and restart your PC..Close all other programs running in the Task Bar and Sytem Tray (clock area) before installing.

Where did you plug the Fan pin on your motherboard for the cooler pump? 
Did you use > AIO Pump connector?

You can also try increasing the fan speed of that header in BIOS to 100%, this typically resolves that as well. May also resolve your LED difficulties. Are you using LED Sync to change the LED lighting on the cooler? Please reach out to us at support@evga.com if the issues continue.

What stands out to me is the Pump Speed is saying 960RPM and we are not getting a reading for Fan Speed. Are the fans working on the CLC? Also that pump speed is very low so I would make sure the fan header you are plugging it into does not reduce the power to help the system be quiet.
