MSI P67A-GD65 Temperature Glitch?

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.
You can see a image here:

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%

Is the motherboard glitching on me? What next step would you guys take?

  1. Hi there,

    Is the fan running in the full speed a lot?
  2. Try to run Prime 95 and watch the temps.
  3. And check the temps with the HWMonitor:
  4. The fan is really quiet so its hard to tell. In the BIOS it tells me its 100%
  5. I ran both of the HWmonitor and Real Temp for 20 min and never broke 60c. That means the motherboard is freaking out right?
  6. I think that's what it is.
  7. If the fan is not running crazy than it doesn't get hot at all.
  8. Okay so another dumb question. Do I flash the bios? Or is it a hardware glitch with the sensor?
  9. I wouldn't flash. It might not fixed it.

    But, what the heck, I would do it probably : )
  10. Lol. Thank you so much for the help, I really appreciate it.
  11. U know what, I would check the CPU and the mobo if the paste is

    possibly inside or some pin is bent...
  12. Okay good Ideal Ill check that out.
