Hello all! I recently built a PC with a Ryzen 5 3600 with a MSI B550 Tomahawk Motherboard. Whenever I restart my computer, for a brief second I get a warning stating that my CPU is overheating. I have not overclocked anything in my BIOS. Does anyone know what might causing that problem? Thank you for your time.
Sounds like the CPU Cooler fan is sticking and not starting immediately after power is applied or there is something that might be obstructing the fan like a cable or wire.
Either way I would open the side panel and turn on power and keep a very close eye on the CPU Cooler fan and see if it takes one or two seconds to start.
You can also manually rotate the CPU Cooler fan with power off and see if it turns easily and there is not resistance or noises. It should turn several rotations by itself if you move the Fan blade around.
If the CPU Cooler fan starts immediately and you still get that warning then you have another problem either with the installation of the CPU Cooler or CPU or Motherboard thermal sensors.
Otherwise you need to post the Make & Model of the CPU cooler and the rest of your computer information for further help.
It is still showing the warning sign. The make is 3600 and the model number is 100-100000031BOX

Have you looked in motherboard bios, cpu temp warning settings.
Yes I have, I recently did a temp test and my idle was at 50-70c and the highest it got while I was playing cs go was 94c. I also cleared the CMOS but still got the same temps.
