Awhile ago when I booted up all of a sudden I got a CPU Fan Error and a couple of beeps, Windows booted fine though. I went to my bios/hardware monitor and set CPU Temp to Ignored instead of N/A and the problem went away obviously.

Today I set Ignored back to N/A and I got the same error message. Now, my CPU Fan is running perfectly, I have a seethrough case so I can see this. The CPU temp is 53degrees celcius and I just set my ASUS Q-FAN feature to enabled which will adjust fan speeds depending on temp. Anyway, does anyone know why I'm getting this problem even though my fans are working fine?

53 on idle? Thats high for an AMD64 CPU (you should be idling below 50C). Did you apply any thermal paste to your CPU/HS? What cooler are you using?

I'm not using any thermal pastes or anything like that, I have a large fan on the side of my case, a fan in the rear and the CPU fan. It's 60c right now with me running 3 instances of IE and WinDVD plus some other programs.

All the fans are running perfectly though, that's the thing and that error just came out of nowhere one day with the PC not being moved or damaged.

My PC is running perfectly though, there's no problems or anything even when gaming. What would some errors from an overheating CPU be?

Your PC is running too hot IMO. If I were you I would get some thermal paste...

Overheating can cause random reboots, lockups and applications crashes.

Well, when I start encountering those I'll get some help :P Everything has been running so well since I got it in September and since the problem first arose in March or so.
