I have a problem with the CPU overheating when it is restarted. I have a homebuilt P8Z68M Pro with a stock cooler, 2500k, 8 G RAM, M4 64 SSD and one Seagate 40 hard drive, one DVD drive, and a AMD 6670 graphics card. It runs Win 7/64. The system works fine typically, but when it is restarted then it starts to overheat. I only have to go into BIOS and restart it as it starts to cool. It is not overclocking. What can I look for in order to repair this issue? Thanks

I monitor my Temp's and voltage with "speedfan".

Are you using the stock fan? did you install it with a small amount of thermal paste?

I get a message indicating that CPU is overheating and it prompts me to BIOS. I have a stock fan, stock cooler as indicated above. The temperature is fine when I use the system. Only when I restart do I see the overheating.

check your heat sink is properly mounted and if it is then try clearing the CMOS by removing the battery on the mb fro 5 minutes or so

as far as I can tell heat sink is fine. The cmos clear didnt do it either. I think the fan and heat sink must be working since I can run it for hours without overheating, until I restart.

I read this:

seems like Asus monitor gives wrong readings...since that thread is pretty old, maybe you could see if there's an update for the monitor/ ai suite
also, in BIOS there must be some setting for thresholds (temps, voltages, fan rpm etc) check if you can push it up
