Hi my current build is as this...

MoBo: Asus M3A79-T DELUXE
BIOS: 0703
CPU : AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition
Mem : Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 2048MB)
Vid : XFX GeForce 9800 GT - 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0
HD : Hitachi Deskstar P7K500 500GB Hard Drive - 7200, 16MB, SATA-300
PSU : Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, SLI-Ready, 135mm Fan
Case: Foxconn TLA776
Monitor: LG LCD Flatron (1280x800)

The problems I've been having are that my video card is not working well, it's overheating (I can feel it really hot) besides the image looks kind of weird/bluerred... I don't know if there is any kind of issue between m3a79-t deluxe and xfx 9800 gt (I'm not SLI nor OC)

The other problem is that my cpu is also kind of hot (around 60*C) actually I've seen that the Vcore is 1.44v... and well I''ve read that it is supposed to be around 1.20V, I have not change anything (no OC) so I don't why is the MoBo giving this voltage to CPU.

The last problem is that my MoBo temp is always around 40*C even grater... (i think as the video card is really hot it has been giving some heat to the mobo... but i don't know) it supposed that this mobo with all that "technology" shouldn't be that hot...

Any ideas, suggestions, comments or something else???

I had the motherboard prior to yours (M3A32 Deluxe) and am now using the M4A79. The entire time I had my M3A32 it ran at around 40*C without any problems. If you want to get it cooler you most likely need more airflow in your case. When I switched from a thermaltake armour case with 2 120mm fans and a top mounted PSU to an Antec 1200 with alot more fans to get air moving my temps dropped to around 30*C. If you can add more case fans and try to have one on the side that blows directly on the motherboard.

As far as your processor 60*C wont hurt it but anything above that and you're getting close to the danger zone. Are you using an aftermarket cooler? Increasing air flow will help some with this but most likely you'll need to adjust your CPU cooler and reapply thermal paste.

Also I'm not sure but isnt 0703 an old bios for your board. Check asus's site for an updated BIOS.
