I have a 790 FTW pwn board that is 2 years old now and I get readings of 90c on my NB. Does anyone have ideals in why? Everything else seems fine and I have been running this computer with minimal issues. Please help me if you can. Thanks

Check the temps in your bios, if it shows a different temp, it's a false report. If it shows the same temp, touch your NB heatsink to see if it's REALLY hot. If it's hot, there's an issue there, if it's not, it could just be dislodged from the chip or it could be a faulty sensor. Hope this helps.

Thanks I will check, but it does seem hot to the touch, I already noticed a post that said feel it LOL. Is there a way to get into the bios without reboting the computer its kinda a silly question but there has to be a way to do that. Thanks again for the help like to hear any suggestions, ect.. :D
