    I have the ASUS probe on my desktop, I had it running a couple of nights ago but didn't take much notice of the temps.

    I got my watercooling etc installed yesterday which seems to be running fine. The CPU is at 35oC which is normal.

    I went to play Pro evoultion soccer tonight, and the game kept hanging every 10 seconds or so for 10 seconds at a time.

    I opened the ASUS probe and the alarm went off for the MOBO temp, it was at 45oC...Is this a abnormal temp?

    What normally cools the mobo? Why would pro evo suddenly be reacting like this, it was fine with my normal air cooling.

    The mobo is a ASUS A8N32-SLI

    Cheers!

    was a post not long ago where another guy with a watercooled system had a similar problem

    the final solution was a format in the end, if i remember rightly a CMOS reset worked for a while so try this.

    Can anyone tell me of any obvious changes I need to make to the BIOS after clearing it?

    I wish i had never done this reset now!

    Any help at all? I'm desperate!

    Try that.. Check your water cooling too, and maybe your temps

    Clear the cmos a couple more times, and for a few seconds each time.

    Then before it gets to the xp screen, load your bios and select any fail safe defaults that you might have, see if this works.

    Was your system overcocked or over volted in anyway before it hit the silk?

    My asus passive mobo cooling keeps temps on mine to within 30-35oC at all times so to me yours does seem high.

    My system is mildly overclocked (2ghz > 2.5) with those temps but that did'nt have a major impact on mobo temps on mine from standard.

    Hope someone can give you a more positive reply.

    Does seem quite High though imo..

    what temp reading do you get in the bios?
