I would suggest testing this processor on another motherboard to determine if the same issue occurs.
If you do not have a spare motherboard to test with, perhaps you can take it to a local computer store to be tested.
Install latest BIOS version as well if you have not done that yet.
If the same issue occurs on another motherboard, then the processor needs to be replaced.
If that is the case, you can proceed to contact the local Intel support center at:
Or by opening a chat session at:
thank you for your response. I feared there is no other solution than replacing the mainboard. I ordered a new (different) one. I replaced the Asus P8C WS (intel c216) with an ASRock Z77M.
So I installed the CPU attached all fans and discs. Only thing I changed in Bios was AHCI to Raid.
The System seems to run just fine now. Temperatures all make sense and HWMonitor says its running at lower voltages and power consumption overall.
There are no chipset drivers and stuff installed right now. I will try the Asus again without any drivers to exclude software problems.
I think I need to contact the Asus support.
Thank you for your help!
