try open hardware monitor or another one to rule out a bad read of the hardware. the temp if it right is for the chipset on the motherboard it should not be that hot. (bad chipset or no airflow or it missing thermal paste or the heat sink not on right on the chipset).

Use another program or update it, that reading is not correct, your board would basically be melting and it is also reporting the Min temp as 111, thus it's not even as though the temp was ramping up to 111.

Do you have the Asus Suite installed on there? Many do not like it but it should give you an accurate report from your Asus MOBO.

where the asus heat sink is in the photo is the chipset for the mb. make sure both pins are on and it on tight. hopfull when they built the mb the vendor put thermal paste under the heat sink. if you have a hair dryer set it on cool and blow air over that heat sink see if the temps change. if they do it could be no thermal paste or no air movement in your case.

there's absolutly no heat coming from the heatsink on the board, + it is a pretty well ventilated case

It's also sitting at 111 degree's min/max even after i restart my pc, doesn't move from it

It is definitely a glitch, like I said, at 111c your MOBO would probably be melting.

i'll put it down to a glitch then, if it does melt i could always get a refund i guess.

Thanks for the responses :)
