MOBO Bios reporting 115C system temperature
Written by: Andrej997 - 12:40 Feb-11-2018

First things first , the problem occurs on my friends PC and his specs are , 

Intel Core2Quad Q6600 ( MOBO is GigaByte GA-P31-DS3L ) 

AMD HD 5770 ( OS win 10 )

3GB of DDR2 800Mhz RAM , and a 1TB 5400 rpm HDD

I will start from the begging , about a week ago he was normally playing Street Fighter and suddenly his in game fps just dropped , at that time he though it was due to the map design ( he was playing with an animated background ) but since he has his PC for 4 months now and he was playing it normally just before that i had doubts about that , after a few days his condition got worse since he would get now low fps and the game was unplayable , and 2 days ago Youtube and watching movies the PC started to lag while watching both , i though it was due to dust so i cleaned the PC but the problem still occurs.

Yesterday when i went again Zuma was lagging which is a game from 2003 , now i tried uninstalling everything that has been installed since before that week , but only OW test server was installed and the problem still was there , next i tried to access CMD but for some reason the window would open for a second and than another smaller one would appear for less than half a second and would close. ( that error https://imgur.com/2fPizpe ) 

I tried going into safe mode but the CMD would still not open and the PC still lagged in normal usage , after exiting safe mode i tried installing HWinfo but after the program start up the PC froze on the part where it says scanning PCI Bus ( only HWinfo was active during that time ) i than installed Speccy which reported a 115 Celcius on the MOBO , i taught it was maybe due to the board not having a sensor there so i went into BIOS and the bios reported the 115C temperature. ( this temp is after a few restarts https://imgur.com/d3d00uD ) 

After that i shut the PC down and wanted to ask you guys could this performance loss be due to the MOBO overheating ? Or maybe it was some system update that couseed this to happen but that would be strange since i disabled all of the Win 10 updates

What you are telling here is EXACTLY what happened to my old laptop, when it reached temperatures above 80 degrees celsius the components are not going to give full power and will start lagging on everything. they do that so ur system wont

burn in flames yu know, because it is the same thing what happened at my laptop it started to reach high temperatures and started to lagg on even YT videos. I think it's some protection or something but the hotter it gets the less power

Just tell your friend to get another pc, that CPU is really old now, it could be capable of very light gaming, web browsing but for modern gaming just doesnt work, the 3gb ddr2 of ram doesnt help either.

really old issue, I'm having the same screen 115c I mean, Well first you should check the temp in you bios, for me there it is 28 and something like that, then check it through installing HWMonitor, and the one I trust is ASUS Suit III, it is very accurate and correct, it is a sensor issue and sometime a software issue, these days it is very common error what I can say, nothing that can worry you, you should try those thing, it might be around 20c actual.

Could be a faulty sensor, just to be on the safe side though, you should replace the thermal paste on the chipset…. check for any bulged or leaky capacitors while you have the board out….. replace them if necessary….. they're not that difficult to replace even with minimal soldering skill.
If that doesn't solve your problem, try a CMOS reset and see if that solves it…. actually it might be prudent to try a CMOS reset before anything else.

Considering those problems, the causes seem a bit vague. You should check by swapping things like ram, the hdd and even the processor. As far as the motherboard is concerned, it could also be a possibility - i once had a pentium 4 whose motherboard died in a manner(though it did not heat up like this one, yours may be a broken sensor) causing the same problems, but i cant be sure if this motherboard would act the same way if it were dying, after all mine was really really old

You totally should check if the cpu cooler is properly installed :) System temperature often is the temperature around the socket. This could mean the cooler isn't doing it's job.

Have you seen the +12V rails only showing 4.4V on the last picture? Besides, I did a little testing for that 110 degree temperature thingy. before my restart it was between 35 and 55. after restart and running for a while (gaming and things to warm things up), it never went of the 30 degree line. I do not think the measurement is really solid.
