Asus P5N-D overheating

I buy new Asus P5N-D motherboard and I use it with Pentium D820 processor, Corsair memory and GeForce 8800GTS. problem is that temperature of chipset is 20 degrees higher then processor temperature. P is on 32 and MB is on 52. Becouse of this sometimes i cant turn on PC and must wait while it cool down. What can i do with it?
And second problem is that I use Win Xp Professional and when I install new forceware for my graphic card system go on 4bit colours and 640x480 resolution and i cant change it.
Im realy frustrated.

  1. Have you put the coolfin on your Chipset?

    You get a CoolFin with the Asus P5N-D motherboard.
  2. Installation instructions say only install chipset fan when running water cooling otherwise it will disrupt the airflow in the case.
    I have same problem so I will try this despite fact I do not have water cooling.

    Faulty, overheating, P5N-D has been repaired 3 times, now they want me to return it again. TWICE they promised me a new board, still I got the old board back. It overheats before I can even install Windows. Nothing but trouble. When you try live support, this is what you get
