My PC works fine, but will crash completely (no message) and the fans will go ballistic, which usually means a heat issue.  I don't understand why 3 of my temps are reading over 100C on my motherboard.  I have a mini-itx motherboard.  The temps on my CPU never get even remotely high and I have it watercooled with a NZXT Kraken X40.  I have run GPU stress tests at 100% load for 15 mins and reached 80C at the highest (but no crash).  However I believe that it is those 3 motherboard temps that might be causing the crash.  Anyone know how to figure out where those might be located on my motherboard?




Intel 2500k

8gb RAM

Asus P8Z77I-Deluxe/WD

Asus GTX 780 ti

2 250GB SSDs

I have no idea why but for your CPU at stock speeds your vcore should be sitting at around 1.2v. From your screenshot, it shows your CPU is not idle so I don't understand why your vcore is so low.


Also, probably would be best if you checked your temps within the BIOS. For example; my HWMonitor says my motherboard is operating at 128c, if thta was the case I don't think I would have a motherboard!


How many fans do you have hooked up, also what is the model of your PSU?
