Asus Striker II Formula: SB Over Temperature

Hi I need some help,

I have a Asus striker II formula motherboard and when I'm Installing vista it allways hangs because I get SB over temperature.

What can cause this? What can I do to prevent this, seetings in the BIOS?
The temp rises with almost 1 deg/s

The MB must be faulty, when i'm in the BIOS the temp rises to 90 in less then 100 sek

So I'm not running any OP system just looking at the tmp page in the BIOS

oki. I will call ASUS on monday and get back with more info then. thx man.
Check if the heatsink on the SB is loose; reseat it if that is the case.  It has to make good contact with the underlying chip.
