Hi,
I just built a new comp with:

Intel Q6600 2.4 Ghz
MSI P35D3 Platinum
Evga 9500 GT
OCZ DDR3 1333 Mhz RAM

When we turned the comp on for the first time I booted into the bios. the bios said core temp was at 100 c then 30 secs later the comp shut off. Already checked heatsink and all power cables. Have 3 case fans and Intel stock heatsink. By the way the hard drive is empty and theres no os.

Thanks RayQuang :thumbsup:

Did you apply thermal compound to the CPU before attaching the heat sink?

I would purchase some Arctic Silver and clean of the the heat sink the the hear spreader on the CPU and apply the new thermal compound.

I will try your solution but I dont think the problem is with the cooling because when I switch it on its already at like 80 c. I think the problem might be with the temperature sensor or the BIOS but I cant change the bios without an os (I think)

Thanks,
RayQuang

The BIOS is the basic in out system which is stored in a EEPROM on you motherboard, there aren't any changes that you can make in the BIOS that will effect this, the OS is completely independent of the BIOS.

It only takes a couple of seconds for the CPU to generate enough heat to produce those temperatures.

Depending on what motherboard you have, pay careful attention where you plug the heatsink fan and the you have the plug aligned properly. This would matter if the fan's speed is controlled
