    DX58SO CPU and VR overheating... all factory stock, how?

    msellery

      My new computer worked for 10 minutes and then powered off. When I press power, both the CPU and Voltage Regulator LED indictator lights on the DX58SO are red, which says CPU and VR overheat. Then everything turns back off immediately.

       

      However, 20 minutes has gone past and it still won't boot. Shouldn't it have cooled off by now?

       

      Also, this is a brand new board with factory heat sinks. Could I have a defective board? I am not overclocking or doing anything crazy in my PC.
