I have an Asus AV8-MX socket 939 Motherboard. Recently I have installed a dual core CPU (AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+ E4 2400Mhz). Upon first boot everything was working fine. But the Day after, when I have boot my PC after some minutes it Shut ed down unexpectedly. I turn it on again. Entering the Bios I saw in the Monitoring Page that the CPU Temperature was rising until it hit 71Celsious so it turned automatically off. After removing and installing again the CPU for the first Day it was OK. Next Morning when I turned on the PC the same problem with CPU Overheating has occurred. I have installed CPU in many Systems with no problem at all.
PS: The CPU bought was USED, I did not overclocked it, or changed the Voltage of it. Any suggestions?
And another question: The system Shuts Down because of the Temperature Sensors Readings? If I disable CPU Temperature Monitoring will it shut down again? I won't risk it because I am afraid that if monitoring is correct, disabling it may result in CPU burnout, since the system won't shut down.
And another thing, after the PC's Shutdown, I have touched the CPU Heatsink on the Pipes and on the plate (that it is in contact with the CPU), and it wasn't so Hot. I kept my Finger on it for long Time with no problem.
Thank you for your Valuable Time!
