Hi there!
Found that Fan off and shutdown temperature in BIOS are desabled.

Shall I enable them?

Depends on if you want those features to be enabled. The shutdown temperature will turn off your PC when it gets to XYZ - to prevent permanent hardware damage. My P4 2.8Ghz laptop would simply restart at 62 degrees... Then again I know that a friend of mine has a MASSIVE heatsink and fan on his and it never goes about 23 degrees.

Your call :)

i think you should monitor your cpu temp while your comp is running like with motherboard monitor 5 or something
then see where the temperature usually is then set the value

so..if your comp's really hot like mine..around 60+ most of the time..
you don't want it to restart at 60
i set mine at 80 i think
that's the lowest value i can choose anyway..um
