    Question Should Mainboard system temp be this high? GA-EP45T-USB3P

    I'm doing a new system build on a GA-EP45T-USB3P board.

    Everything is stock. No tweaks. No o'c.
    While my CPU (Q6600) is sitting around 40-41, my mainboard system temps are averaging 58 on idle! (As low as 54, as high as 61. Most of my checks at 57-58).

    This seems really high. I'm accustomed to temps in the 30s - low 40s, only reaching mid-upper 50s on heavy load.

    Can anyone confirm WHERE on the mainboard the thermostat is located?

    Can anyone suggest WHAT might be wrong, how concerned I should be, and what I might be able to do?

    If it helps to know... I have a small intake fan, a large outtake fan, plus CPU fan, power supply fan, and dual-graphics card -- so 6 fans! The highest temp (61) was prior to closing up the case. It's a large Antec case. Several cards and 4 drives inside -- but nothing unusual.

    Thanks, Craig

    those temp seem fine to me a little hight but not bad
    mine sits arond 57 idle and 69 full load for my X58

    it depends on a lot of thing as to why your temps are high
    from your average room temp size of case and air flow inside case
    to me your temp seems fine but low temps are allways better

    try with just one gpu installed and see if it affects mb temps,usually you see much higher temps with 2 gpu's,a bigger intake fan would help aswell

    Thanks Judge.

    Do you or anyone else know where on the motherboard the main thermostat is normally located?

    Temp sensors on the p45 boards have a sensor that is labeled system or motherboard which is the southbridge which is located directly after the first Pci-e slot which your gpu is installed. When the gpu heats up it heats up that sensor. The cpu sensor is located under or near the cpu and will must likely not be accurate. Only thing to worry about is your GPU temps and CPU Core temps.

    This only reflects the general state of things around the area below the video card. not to worry.

    They could have moved it elsewhere, you could check by adding a small fan over the area.

    Wazza --

    Sorry to confuse... My single MSI graphics card has 2 fans on it. (only 1 card).

    What idle temps are the rest of you getting for P45 chipset boards?

    Ace, Yuu --

    you guys are awesome. Thanks. I'll play around some. See if I can reduce it further.

    Craigster, When running 2 VGA cards on my USB3P RIG my system temps : Idle 30c to 34c / Max 34c to 38c. When running 1 VGA card my system temps : Idle 28c to 32c / Max 32c to 36c. I think the temp sensor location and air flow could be your problem. Anyway, I had a simular problem with my UD3P RIG and Psycho101 said 45c+ system temps - I should be concerned. I hope you get the issue resolved - This MOBO is fun to OC. Here's the link where Psycho101 and others helped me.

    Be sure you are using the latest BIOS too, some BIOS may have this value set up buggy.

    Some programs will as well, so if you are using a program be sure it is the latest version
