    Intel Xeon E3-1246v3 LGA 1150 3.5GHz rapidly OVERHEATING from start up


      I have recently bought a Intel Xeon E3-1246v3 LGA 1150 3.5GHz and installed it on a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H LGA 1150. It is currently overheating at temperatures of over 90 degrees. I have not change any bios components nor have i damaged any components while installing. Wondering if anybody knew why it is overheating and can give me some tips because at this point if i run my computer for more than 5 minutes the cpu will probably go into a low temp solder."melt"
