I recently put a new motherboard into my computer (same model and brand just an updated version). Since I have done this whenever my CPU temp reaches 130F it will freeze and I will have to hard reboot.

This strikes me as an auto protect feature on the motherboard, but I have found nothing in the manual about this.

My motherboard is an ECS K7S5A version 3.x

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

130 is pretty hot (about 54c).


you should be in the low to mid 40's.


Instead of trying to disable a feature, I would look at either adding fans or replacing your heatsink/fan combo to reduce the temp.

I think it's just shutting down because it's too hot. Remember, the temperature sensor isn't directly bonded to the processor, being a part of the MB, so your processor may be even hotter. I'd address that problem as suggested.
