I bought a Cool Colors SOHO tower. It has an LCD panel up front for the temperatures of the computer etc. Every now and then it will repededitly (spell?) beep at me. The temperature sensors are hooked up to the master hard drive, VGA card and CPU. The beeping tells me the computer is over heating. However, I have an Asus CUV4X-E motherboard and run the Asus software called Asus Probe. It reports that all temperatures are fine. The machine runs great and doesn't have a problem while the beeping occurs. All of my 10+ fans are fairly new and are all running. The BIOS also reports that the system temperatures are whitin the acceptable levels. If I push the reset button on the LCD panel, not the computer, it restarts the LCD panel and works fine for a while. If the system were to over heat the motherboard has sensors built in to it and would shut the computer down. I figured that pushing the LCD panel reset switch would be an okay fix for now until I can resolve the issue at a later date. Any ideas?
