I have an Intel Core i5 9600k. Windows 10. Just finished my build and on startup I get a “CPU overheating alert”. I’ve reapplied thermal paste several times at the right amount and have replaced the heat sink as well. The fan is on and connected to the motherboard. The BIOS reads 126 Celsius which I don’t find to be reasonable. Using Coretemp and HWMonitor, the cpu temps are only 30-40 Celsius. I’ve been able to run games just fine like Borderlands 3 and Skyrim special edition with no issue. Any help?
