I have a weird Phenom 9950 overheating issue with this mobo. The CPU is fine, I tested it on a number of other mobo and it was ok. CPU cooling is also good, Im pretty sure about it (a Scythe Zipang), also other CPU's I tried on this Foxconn were also working fine.
The problem is that without load CPU temp is about 60, and goes far beyond 75 under load, then hangs. As you can see, the temps quite high. I tried all combinations of setup in BIOS with no success. Sure, no overclocking, I even have to underclock a little.
I also tried to re-assemble the system for several times and with the help of a specialist as well - so no mistakes in assembly.
It's all strange since the mobo and the CPU are working fine separately, but do not work together, so I cannot even use the warranty - the parts were bought in different places.
Phenom 9950 125 W, Scythe Zipang cooling
Hiper 550W PSU,
PowerColor 4870 (also tried it with in-built graphics).
BIOS dated at 08/16/2008, not thelast one, however I didn't find anything related to the problem in the updates description, so won't wish to try my luck updating BIOS if it's not really necessary.
