I just finished building my first computer about 30 minutes ago. Everything seems to be connected okay, I bought an aftermarket Heatsink/fan and Artic Silver thermal paste. Other specs are,
ASUS intel Mobo
corsair 620W power supply
EVGA nvidia GTX 260
When I ran the initial BIOS setup, it stopped about 4 device checks into it and said "CPU over Temp."
I'm guessing I installed the heatsink incorrectly. Could it be anything else? if not, how could I go about fixing this?
