    Hi TSG people. I read in a post here under hardware to check system and cpu temps in bios information, how do I do that and what would be considered normal and too hot for this machine?

    Run your machine for a while so that it gets to its normal running temperature. Then reboot and press <F2> as it is starting to show the BIOS set-up. If it is NOT F2 then the correct key should be shown in a message on start up.
    I don't know the temperatures as those very much depend on the environment and your use, but post them in a reply and someone with that machine may chip in.

    Here is the intel spec sheet for that cpu;
    As you can see, max temp is 73C.
    I never build with asrock boards however I assume that they [asrock] has monitoring software available for download on the support page for your mb. It is best to check temps and voltages under a load ie running prime95 or IBT. If checking under a full load is not possible, then the bios check is the next best thing.
    Support page for your mb;
