Idle Temperature

I replaced old graphic card (9600GT) with new(GTX260extreme+) and noticed motherboard temperatures are 10 to 15`C higher
They used to be around 38`C now they are 48 to 54`C when playing games.
I did not overclock anything,everything is on default values.

CPU Q6600@2,4 GHz
PSU Chiftek 550W
MEM Kingston 4 Gb @800 MHz
GPU Leadtek GTX260 extreme+
MOBO Gigabyte EP35-DS3R

More about idle temperature
  1. with a GTX260extreme+ i think it's just fine if the temps around 50'C when playing games .... It plays well, isn't it? If it fine then don't worry about it.
  2. Idle = Idle, so if you're playing a game that counts as stressed not as idle.

    And what did you expect? The card you have now uses about twice the power, or even more, than a 9600GT. So temperatures will be higher yes.
