Upgrading my old gaming PC

I think you know the main points of building, read the manuals, switch off power, take anti static measure, ensure stand offs in the case match exactly screw holes in the Mobo, do not rush.
I would recommend you purchase a internal system speaker like this, http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html
Any problems, Post.

Something I have never come accross, you would think such a bug would have been fixed with a BIOS update.
The support guy said that the error is "very common". For some reason certain CPU heat sinks just set off the error during POST.
HWMonitor not picking up al the sensors, CPU fan is running to slow, this may generate the error message.
Please download and run OCCT, to save space on the SSD, I would install to the spinner.

After it start, for this test, > click, power supply, > tools, > on the right side, tick each fan that is listed, > close window, > at the top, click the camara icon, this will take a screen shot, save to the desktop.
> Click ON, will start the test. after about 50 minutes, take another screen shot.
When the test has finished, a report will be shown.
Please post the two screenshots in your next post.

I'm getting an error as soon as I try to run the test. The pop-up message says "Crysis2.exe has stopped working". Then it gives me the options to check online for a solution or just close the program. All I have is the screenshot for before the test was attempted. I've had no problems with this rig so far, it's just that error during post. I can run Star Wars: The Old Republic on absolute max settings and don't have any problems with it.
Did some research, going to try the beta

In the BIOS, look at PC Health reading.
Also in Asus Probe and Smart Doctor.
Look at the Asus BIOS updates for your MB, see if there is any mention of a fix for faulty sensor reading.

Also, I looked at BIOS updates and most of them just say Increased Stability. None of them mention faulty sensors. I think that OCCT was having a problem reading the fan sensor, because HWMonitor and AI Suite II both showed the fan running at a speed while OOCT was reading it as 0.

It is mute now seeing you seem to have sorted the issue but perhaps the features are now part of A1 Suite 11,
Asus Probe says it doesn't support this model (mobo I assume) and Smart Doctor says it doesn't support my
