"over temperature error press f1 to continue"

ive tried resetting the cmos battery
what could be the problem?

Make certain the CPU heatsink/fan assembly is securely fastened to the motherboard. The hs/f should be sturdy in its mount and not rock or wobble. If this is an Intel sys, the pins/screws in all four corners must be secure. If an AMD, make certain both ends of the clamp are held fast to all 'dogs'.

Access system BIOS. Look for a section titled Hardware Monitor or some such. Note the CPU and system temperatures and the temp alarm points. Post here.
The CPU idles around 50-55. It's a asus lga 1155 p8p67 b3. What's a general sage temperature?
