There are settings in BIOS to be set for thermal throttling and shut down. Look them up in your motherboard manual.

Core Temp has overheat setting that will throttle it when the CORES hit a certain temp, but not the CPU itself. Try that out. I use it and here is the download link: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

On phage 3-23 in your manual there are Q-fan settings, have you played with those looks like the CPU fan if enabled only goes to full speed at 70°C. Lowering that limit will help.
