    Default Auto switch off/High temp/CPU ASRock Z68 PRO-3

    Hi,
    I'm sure I read that if the CPU temperature goes too high on an ASRock Z68 motherboard then the system will shut itself down to avoid any damage to the CPU.
    Are there settings for this or are you able to set this temperature limit yourself?

    Thanks in advance,

    Andrew

    isnt there something in the bios to set shut down when certain temp is reached? usually the cpu has built in shutdown if 100c is reached,which is too high imo,80c core should be your limit,i know for sure that in coretemp program(freeware) you can enable shutdown of pc and set a temp to shutdown,its handy to have

    Cheers,
    I didn't see the option in BIOS when I was in there last so I'm downloading SourceForge.net: Software Search now.
    My CPU fan came loose and temp reached 97c since then my windows performance score dropped from 7.5 to 6.7 so 0.8 points lost.I'm guessing that can only be due to that high temp being reached so I may be bolting the stable door after the horse has left but still a good thing to have.I was going to set at 75c but I'll go with your recommend at 80c now instead.

    Thanks wazza300

    actually i would set at 75c,its lower for sandybridge cpu's i think,make sure you tick start when windows starts or at start up too

    be carefull with the installer it trys to trick you into installing un needed software,just click decline untill it says coretemp,then accept,heres what and how it should looklike,click options/overheat protection
