  1. There may be. How flexible is your BIOS?
  2. what do you mean?
  3. I have a msi P67A-C43 B3 mobo
  4. If your computer is a prebuild (Dell, HP, etc), then there may not be too much you can do in the BIOS. On the other hand, if your computer was a home build, then your BIOS should be able to raise the limit of 50°C.
  5. I built it.
  6. Good. What are your system specs?
  7. CPU: i5 2500
    Motherboard: msi P67A-C43 B3
    Graphics Card: PNY 560 ti
    Memory: 8gb (4Gx2) G.Skill 1600
    Hard Drive: 1TB Samsung
    Power Supply: Antec BP550
    Case: NZXT Phantom
    CPU: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
  8. I took a look at your mobo manual. I don't see an option to change the shutdown temperature, but you'd be the better judge of that. Check the Advanced section of your BIOS, under H/W Monitor. If you can't find a way to raise that limit, then perhaps the alternative would be to set the fan speed to 100% when your CPU reaches 50.
  9. ok thanks
  10. could it be a bad mobo?
  11. It's possible. In my opinion, 50°C is oddly low for your computer to shutdown on. The mobo has the thermal sensors, and if one of them is bad, it could be only reporting 50°C, but in reality, your temp could be higher. Still, even that is a stretch, because to reach a thermal shutdown temp, you'd have to be doing some serious OC w/o aftermarket cooling.

    Where are you reading the temp at, the Hardware Monitor just before the OS loads?
  12. well i ran prime 95 today while i was at school and it didnt shut down.The maxs were core1 54C core2 54C core3 57C core4 55C. I dont know what happen but it seems to be working.
