Windows 7: CPU Temperature Overheat

Hey guys.

Just a quick update. I am currently on the same motherboard until Monday where a new board (ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+) will be delivered. Same CPU, same everything except using a Corsair Liquid Cooler. I've dismissed/ignored the BIOS temperature and voltage warnings and proceeded to boot into Windows, however, Windows has refused to start some services including my graphics drivers and a lot of others. (not sure why)

I was able to boot into Windows and launched HWMonitor and it confirms that my CPU temperature is PERFECTLY fine. It reads between 18-20 degrees Celsius. So this confirms it is the boards sensor(s) and not the CPUs sensor.

Have you looked in Event Viewer to see if there are any errors that might explain why some services don't start ?

Run a System File Check (up to 3 times) to see if you have any errors that can't be fixed.

I've noticed that my PSU is warm and that the fan isn't spinning on CorsairLink. Usually the fan doesn't kick in unless the temperature of the PSU gets warm..but usually allows me to control that fan manually. It isn't. Also my AMD Graphics drivers aren't loading still. Apparently there is no AMD driver loaded.. so I'm currently downloading the latest driver update.

Mate I don't know if I asked this before but run my little ditty as I am just curious as to the health of your PSU and especially if it is getting warm. I did notice in the CPUID readouts re the 3.3 v being a shafde over 2v and that is not right. The PSU is after all the thing that drives the rest of the components and if it is bad then needs something doing about it.
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
Limits +/-
12v = 11.4 12.6v
5v = 4.74 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 3.465v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s
See this for the rail voltage info
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Hi.

I'll do this as soon as I've got my BSOD solved mate. Thank you.

My video drivers, PSU fan/CorsairLink is working again. PSU is cool (cold cool) which is a good sign.

BSOD after updating Video Drivers (Crimson 16.4.1 Win7)

The voltages and temps look good to me.

Just a question, and it might be something to address after you get this overheating issue fixed up...

Your RAM is DDR3-1600. Why are you clocking it at 1333? Is there a stability issue?

The BIOS sets those clocks by default for some reason. It always has unless I've been overclocking.

Yeah, the BIOS will always set your RAM at 1333, no matter if it's faster or not. You don't have to OC the CPU, but you can enable the XMP profile in your BIOS (or set the speed and timings yourself if it has no XMP setting, like my ASUS board). It's not actually overclocking. It's just making your RAM run at the proper speed.

Yep as Mellon Head has said mate why the RAM clock at 1333? ti is quite easy to clock it a but more nd the PSU looks pretty ok to me.
