What would be a normal motherboard temperature for my ASUS M4A785-M?

Hello,
I have a question: Is 40 degrees celcius (only few browser windows open) an okay temperature for the asus m4a785-m? My system specs are:

-asus motherboard M4A785-M
-AMD Athlon II x4 @ 2.6 Ghz
-Galaxy GeForce GT 240
-450 watt power supply
- Cooler Master Elite 330 Black ATX Mid-Tower Case

Thank You Very Much for your help!

  1. Probably, but what is it under load? My guess is it won't change much under load, in which case it'll be fine.
  2. There is no such thing as a normal temperature for a mobo. It depends on how hot your room is, what kind of case cooling you have, if your overclocking anything and what your video card and power supply are. All those things are factors in mobo temps.

    That's like saying what's a normal light bulb temp, well that depends on the heat of the room, the wattage of the bulb, etc.

    40c seems perfectly normal to me.

    Yeah I know that I Just wanted to know if the temperature I have Currently will not fry the motherboard up.

    Right Now the mobo is 36 C Idle or Full Load.
    Yes you are right it doesn't change a lot. The max it goes is 36 C.
    I'm a little concerned about the processor though. On Idle it is about 28 celcius.
    When I run Grand theft auto san andreas though it goes to 37 - 39 celcius.
    Do I need to worry about this? I'm Quite surprised it runs that hot.
  5. Sorry If I Kind of changed the subject I just need to know if those temps are aok. I dont want my new build to overheat.
  6. Those temps are fine. 70 degrees C would be OK for the CPU at full load. All your temps are fine, it seems, so don't worry.

    What About The CPU Temps? On Full Load it is 36 to 43 Celcius.
    On Idle it is 29 Celcius. Thank You So Much by the way! :)
  8. Yes, it is. Sorry my last reply wasn't clear.

    Thank you so much! I was Kind of afraid that when I do some heavier stuff on the PC It would Affects my motherboard temperature by a lot. I just typically do SOME (not a lot) of gaming on it and maybe some video editing.

    Right now the mobo runs at 38 - 39 celcius when idle. I am surprised that it runs that hot though.
