  1. Is the CPU fan speed set to auto in the BIOS? What case has a yellow power light? Is it a Dell case?

    it is a dell case, as for the fan speed, is that set by default, because I didn't set it on auto.
  3. Check the BIOS and configure it as per your preferences. Try switching the power connector on the motherboard around to see if the light will change to the other color.

    What is your CPU temp. in the BIOS while idle? You may have a high temp. because the CPU cooler is incorrectly installed.

  5. Maybe you didn't push the heatsink properly in place. I had the same problem. My temps were 72°C on a core 2 quad q6600 at stock clocks. Check your cooler.
