Hello everyone,

I have a real problem with my new build. I did a little upgrade to my cpu and bought cheapest mobo to go with it http://www.msi.com/product/mb/760GM-P21--FX-.html. I get it to high loads with P95 and it throttles from x18 to x7 in like 30 seconds, temp gets to 255C ( I know its not possible, but that seems to throttle my cpu and that way while playing games I drop half of my framerate

). I have no understanding of motherboards and I really need to get this working because this is just unbearable. Thanks for any answers!

Have you updated your bios on the motherboard, and have you used Realtemp as I used coretemp before on a AMD Phenom system before and it showed really ******ed high temps for no reason. And it going up in down on the multiplier is the work of the Cool n Quiet technology Link if you really want to know what that is.

Are you using cpuz to monitor the cpu speed of the cpu or coretemp?

Faulty sensor. No way its 255 C. Try realtemp. What is the temp in bios?
Edit: Reseat cooler and remember the TIM and update bios.
