yeah 140 is a bit high, it's probably running hot then shutting off. Get some thermal paste and a new fan.

What are you using to cool the CPU, you need at least an
Akasa Silver mountain 2Q, and use arctic silver compound, while you are at it get a couple of fans, 80-90mm, whatever the case accommodatesfit one anywere at the bottom sucking in, and one at the top blowing out, if your tower case is shoved in the liitle gap in some desks it will need some air round it, the cooler will cool the 2100 but if the inside of the case is warm it will just pass warm air around the fins

Yeah, the temps are pretty high, but not high enough to warrant a automatic restart from your bios (I have the same motherboard as you exept I got the Via chip instead of the Sis). Before you start adding all these case fans and stuff, start off with a high CFM 80mm fan for your heatsink and see if the temps drop at all (I recommend TT products; like a volcano). If they don't, the problem may lay somewhere else (like a faulty chip).

easy way to test it is take off the case and if you got a small fan, have it blowing lightly into the case... if it doesn't turn on and off by itself, you know it's overheating.
