CPU Overheat Error


Just joined this and couldnt find an answer of what to do now.

Just turnt on my PC and the first message comes up

CPU overheat Error then goes to a screen that says safe mode or start up normally so I click one of them and the PC restarts and this just continues in a loop.

Is this a literal problem. do I just need to get a new CPU or are other componants also affected?
is it a software error i can resolve?

My PC spec is :

Asus P7H55-M LGA1156 Motherboard
Corsair XMS 4Gb DDR3 1333 (2x2Gb) CL9 Dual-Channel Kit
Intel i3 540 3.06GHz LGA1156 Processor
Ati Radeon 6670

Dont actually know what to do? I built my last two PC's but never had a single problem with my PC's so clueless?

Cheers for any help.

Did it used to work fine or is this a new build.

You definitely need to inspect the interior of the computer to ensure the CPU fan is properly connected to the appropriate CPU FAN header on the motherboard. You need to ensure the CPU heatsink fan (HSF) assembly (and everything else too) is free of heat trapping dust and dirt. And you need to ensure the CPU fan spins freely immediately upon powering up.

If all that appears good, I would want to ensure I am supplying good power.

Are your temps good once it does boot and you use it?

You might also look in the BIOS Setup Menu to see what the error notice threshold is.
