  1. Hey guys. So I installed a new cooler today (Cooler Master liquid cooler, Seidon 120V Ver.2) - I finished installing it (complete with fresh new thermal paste, cleaned it properly and everything). I turned it on (moment of truth) and my BIOS just kept beeping at me and said "CPU Temperature Overheat". I went into the Temperature Monitor tab in my BIOS and it says 100+°C! So I put my hand over the pump, no heat. I put my fingers around the socket, no heat. I check the temperature of the North and South bridges, no heat. It's all cold. Cool. So why is my BIOS falsely reading over heat detections?? Would this occur because I took off the BIOS jumper whilst my PC was off? I don't know. CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 Mobo: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 I'm not sure whether or not it's doing this because of this cooler or I accidentally removed the BIOS jumper. Of course since it's happened to you, and many others, it kind of proves the liquid cooler product itself is bad. NOTE: I CANNOT boot into Windows. I cannot get past the BIOS POST as it just says "CPU Temperature overheat". Even though I feel absolutely no heat coming from the CPU block/socket/CPU or the radiator. There is NO heat coming from anything yet BIOS reports overheat at 127°C. Could it be reading my CPU surface temperature and not the core? Could you awesome people give me any suggestions?
