Check the capacitors near the CPU, most likely the top is not perfectly flat, they need replacement. See for more info as this board has been reported for having bad capacitors. They are from a good brand (United ChemiCon) but a low-tempgrade series so used in the wrong location. Reason: cutting costs, this is a low-end board after all.

Do not assume anything
