I have just put together my new build and it keeps coming up with a HAL.DLL error, it suggests it may be a thermal error. This only seems to come up after install mobo drivers/gpu drivers. My specs are as below.

originally the fault first came up when trying to install updates to directx and a couple of time after this doing the same thing, but has also done this when not trying to install directx which makes me wonder whether it is a thermal error or not? It does sometimes on start up come up with CPU fan error - but the fan is running but only around the 600rpm mark. have tried changing parameters down to allow below this but i still get the error.
has anyone had any similar problems to which they have found a solution?
Ok, i believe i have now sorted this. One of the drivers that came with the motherboard is faulty, i think it is either the bluetooth or the intel smart storage thing. Hopefully if anyone else has this error it may help to know.
