    Your sys temps do seem a little high.

    Take off the side panel and then check them.

    Mine at 43c are high when you consider my room is no higher than 26c.

    I believe these are wrong or the board is hot.

    I actually don't believe the readings, which are not possible with room temp of 26c

    Are you making fun because you have a great airflow case.

    If you remove your side panel, you will notice that when you temps drop so will your fan speed, so if you want cooler you will have to work out your fan speeds in relation to your temps, or buy a fan speed controler

    I can't help you here cause i have only had this great board for 1 day.

    Btw, It might be worthwhile to mention what revision your board is. Mine is rev 1.1.
    One of the changes was the heatsink on the southbridge. If SpeedEuphoria is correct regarding the sensor actually being on the Southbridge.

    My guess that they changed the heatsink due to chunky graphics heatsink touching the south bridge, because my graphics card is millimetres away from the heatsink.

    In any case, I'll shove a fan on the southbridge and see if the temperature changes tonight. If that is the case, I may just run my graphics card on PCIE2 instead.

    Alright, I can definitely confirm that the System Temperature sensor is on the southbridge as mentioned by SpeedEuphoria.

    I have shifted the graphics card to run on PCIE2. So it is now clear off the southbridge. While the temperature is abit better 51~52 degrees celsius during idle, it is not too much better as I would've hoped.

    stillhere: having the panels off made negligible differences.

    I agree with this and i have a fan on it.

    having the panels off made negligible differences. ditto.

    My board is rev 1.0 and it works great.

    I have to say i love this board, and the small problems with temps, which can be sorted with a controller are minimal.

    PS make sure your card now runs 2x16 and not 1x8, because you are using slot two. Use gpu-z.

    Actually, you can't make the second slot X16.
    Although the motherboard contains 2 X16 slots. the 1st slot Labeled PCIEX16_1 is X16, the second slot labeled PCIEX8_1 is always X8.

    As noted from the Gigabyte website in specifications.

    1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16
    2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8

    Block diagram on Page 8 of the user manual although shows this.

    It is different from the X48 X58 chipsets which is capable of otherwise.
