My amd 5 1600x overheats so much so that it shutdown itself even in bios on start. I have asrock x370 gaming k4 motherboard and g.skill ripjaws V 8gb 2400mhz ram. The chip overheat so much that it restart itself whether i am in bios or install windows it shutdown in the middle. i do not know what to do. I do not have cpu cooler yet but i think its not normal for chip to get this much hot while installing a window or just going to bios. Forgot to add my bios version is P1.60.
