Sabertooth Z77 Overheating?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

For some reason my Asus Thermal Radar is warning me that my Motherboards running too hot. During games it will cause the game to crash and when i alt Ctrl Del out of the game i see this warning. Isnt 60degrees nothing to worry about? Or is my board defective? i had a feeling this Thermal armor would cause heat issues...

All other Temperatures are running fine, i monitor them on my extended display..

Easy fix. Have a fan blow over that sensor and game again to test. If the temp goes down you just need more airflow over the board

Strange thing is, i have a 200MM fan blowing directly over that sensor and the rest of the board. I stuck my hand iin the case from the front and its extraordinarily cool inside. and all exhaust is cool..

Possibly just a bad sensor
