Thanks for the advice all. Have been into the cmos/bios and been through it a number of times but cant see anything as far as protected areas, fan speeds, temps or the like. Is it possible they are just not there?

Additional info
Mainboard Gigabyte i810
Chipset Intel i810E
Bios American Megatrends

Voltages (as per pc wizard)

CPU 1.71V
Aux 1.47V
+3.3 - 3.39V
+5V - 4.49
+12 - 10.82V

Chasis Fan 3900rpm

Only thing i saw in the bios of interest was to do with rtc alarm (hours minutes seconds etc)

Those temps are max temps it should be able to handle (for a while).

Just had a look at the intel site and i see the max recommended temp is 45C. So at 52C, i guess that could be the reason for the alarm. Also having read other forum posts, the motherboard being GA-6WMM7 REV 4.1, being a revised mboard i read these do not have software to monitor fan speeds and tempretures (not sure if thats true?)
