Details:
System: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge
Graphics: GeForce GTX 460 FTW

Hey guys,
I am having a odd problem that has been driving me crazy.

I have 2 Hard Drives on my system running two different OS:
-Mac OS X Lion(SSD)
-Windows 7(HDD)

Recently my system has been freezing about a hour into doing anything. When I restart it none of the Hard Drives show up until I go into the Bios and re-assign their boot prioritys. Even then the Mac drive which is a SSD sometimes won't show up until I give the system a 10-15 cooldown and then turn it on again.

When I was in the Bios it basically said my CPU temperature was ready to melt. I have a Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge and its giving me a reading of 99c with a big red bar flashing.

Logically I assume that is the reason my system is freezing however, when I load up Windows and use RealTemp my CPU never gets close to 99 even with the load tested to 100%

Hi there,

The fan is really quiet so its hard to tell. In the BIOS it tells me its 100%

I ran both of the HWmonitor and Real Temp for 20 min and never broke 60c. That means the motherboard is freaking out right?

If the fan is not running crazy than it doesn't get hot at all.

Okay so another dumb question. Do I flash the bios? Or is it a hardware glitch with the sensor?

I wouldn't flash. It might not fixed it.

But, what the heck, I would do it probably : )
