Hello

a few days ago i have replaced my Asus m5a78l-m/usb3 with an asrock extreme3 970 motherboard however after installing everything into the asrock and running it for the first time i have noticed that i am getting very high fan speeds (6000+rpm) with very high temperatures (60+) when playing a game i have checked their bios and set the fans on automatic instead of full on but it didn't make any difference i have also checked and reseated the CPU heatsink/fan with new mx-4 thermal paste however this made no diffirence either (The CPU is an FX8120)
