On idle the temp is usually at 40c + and on some load it goes up to 50c +. I am a bit worried, since I haven't experienced such tempertures before, until upgrading my rig, even the CPU won't go above 40 on full load. MB reaches the same tempertures as system. Any clue with recommended/max temps for ASUS P5B-V ? Should I be worried with such temps? Cheers.
More aboutsystem temp
you dont have to worry about motherboard temps, should be alright as long its under 60c
a little more case ventilation might help
The max temp for most Chipsets is around 80C~105C so 40C (104F) is perfectly fine.
