AMD Phenom II x4 955

Not even booting into OS.
I was in this BIOS screen looking at CPU Temperature.

CPU Temperature : 99degC/210degF
SYS Temperature : 28degC/82degF

CPU Temperature : 110degC/230degF

and then 117degC and gone!!

CPU Vcore : 1.360V

Have you tried reinstalling your heatsink?, Also might be a bit dusty in there as well if you haven't cleaned it in a while which could cause heat issues as well.

The fan on the CPU should speed up as the CPU gets hotter.

With those temps, a stock cooler should sound like a jet taking off.

If it doesn't, you may have a bad fan or bad fan header.
