i just recently installed my new motherboard today, being a ASRock 970 extreme3 and i have had ZERO issues with anything stability wise, i installed core temp and core temp widget for windows 7/vista. here is a very weird issue that seems to randomly happen and it causes my pc to sleep-mode " i have overheat set to 134F"
somthing doesnt seem right, i was runnin very little load at this time as well. im hoping its just a glitch,seening the AXTU program never said anything THAT high. the last line is where it shot to 154F in a matter of ten seconds, which sounds very suspicious to me,and leads me to belive its just a glitch. can anyone verify?

Time,CPU 0 Temp. (°),,CPU 0,Low temp. (°),High temp. (°),Core load (%),CPU speed (MHz)

Looks like it's just a hiccup. ASRock boards have been known to have sensor issues so that's where I would tend to point my thoughts at. Now, you say it has a 'sleep-mode'? If your proc. is overheating, it will shut-down, not go to 'sleep'. It is, however, possible that there is a deeper problem. You replaced the board but, did you reinstall windows or just expect it to work? If you're switching boards, you should reinstall Windows so that all the appropriate drivers are loaded during install. If you're have problems like this and you've only been running it for a day, you are going to run into ever more problems in the future if you don't do a fresh install now with a new board.

Let us know.

im sorry for the misunderstanding about that point, i meant i manually set it in core temp to initiate sleep mode in the event of a higher then set safe point threshold which i had set to 134F. yes as well i was forced to re install windows as well,sadly. the OS and everything software and hardware wise seems to run without a hitch, no stability issues i ran prime95 as well for testing stability. i have since turned off "overheat protection" in core temp's options, just to stop it from causing the computer from shutting down windows so i could have a chance to further analyze what exactly was going on,and my conclusion is its just a software issue that causes it to spaz at random times, with or without a load on the cpu. it's always the same core #4 and always 154F when it triggers a over-temp alert. this is my second build so far, and i have installed all drivers for the board and other hardware's i am running. with that said, i notice no indifference in any other issues whatsoever other then core temps little bug. thank you for your reply and i will always be open to advice.
