Have you checked the BIOS? The BIOS on this board has a section called Smart Fan. It's in a part of the BIOS called PC Health Status. The fan's response to increased processor temperature is controlled by something called Easy Tune. If the processor is overheating and you can't hear the fan running flat-out to cool it, the RPM needs to be increased.
Another thing to check is the heat sink to processor contact. In order to get good heat transfer from the processor to the heat sink the whole top of the processor needs to be coated with a thin film of heat sink compound and the sink needs to be correctly aligned and making good contact with the processor.
If all of this proves fruitless, you can set the BIOS to optimized defaults by pressing F7 while in the BIOS. Ultimately, as a last resort you can try F6. Of course, as you're most likely aware, you have to save and restart after each change.

It runs at first 10 mins then it suddenly turns off without warn?
hi this sounds like you might have either a overheating fault or the "switch" ( not a real switch more like a little silver tube looking item) on the motherboard may be at fault, you need to check the CPU heat sink and fan are up to the job, also check the graphics card if you have a separate one, it might be overheating, turn it on with the case open and just check the CPU fan see if is turning fast or even better still access the bios and go to the CPU utility and check the fan ratio there it shouldn't be less than 2500 to 3500 rpm depending on the board and CPU ok...hope this helps please vote thanks

Since changing the battery on the Gigabyte 8KNXP mboard the SATA Hard Drive isn't being seen. How do I setup the BIOS for the SATA hard drive to be used & seen for Windows to start up again?
Are you sure that the drive isn't being detected but not being SELECTED as the boot drive? Most older MBs will default to the PATA primary cable to search for the boot disk. When you fist boot up, enter the BIOS. If, under the STANDARD CMOS FEATURES option, you do not see your SATA drive listed, then check the data and power cable connections to the SATA drive. If it still is not, there, then, in the CMOS, check under the INTEGTATED PERIPHERALS to ensure that the ON-CHIP SATA option is enables (or AUTO). If the drive IS there, but just not booting, then, under the ADVANCED BIOS FEATURES, check and ensure that the SATA drive is listed as the FIRST BOOT DEVICE. If it is not, follow screen direction to change the first boot device to the SATA HDD.
