this is specs of my mainboard, this board has a hardware overheat protection, which shots the system down whenever cpu temp reachs 120f degree. since it is hardware protection i cannot make any changes to it.
this so called hardware protection is becoming very frustrating, it shots the system down at startup, pushing the button to start up my system and it shots itself down, and would take sometimes another fifteen minutes to start again.
if this happens the system would loose power, and will never regain power until a power switch behind the system is switched off and on after awhile. if you are still following me, you can imagine how long it will take to start up this system. whenever it starts there is no other problem.
the system temp has never go above 100f, it is not like heat thing. why i am telling this story is that i am becoming fedup with this seven months old board.
and asking for your opinion, since i am only thinking of replacing it which would make it fourth boards in seven months.
