    I did find this
    Amd E350 temprature too hot? - XBMC Community Forum
    where the guy replaced the thermal paste and the temps dropped significantly.

    I heard back from Gigabyte, my favourite bit is bolded - it is nice and contradictory!
    "Thank you for your kindly mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, due to the different environment (country, location...etc) and the hardwares (computer case, cooling fan...etc) the user have, so we are sorry that we do not have relevant temperature test report for you to reference, but basically, if the temperature does not cause the system to crash or unstable, the temperature you mentioned is acceptable.

    But, if you still concern about the overheat problem, we suggest you can try to clean up the cooling fan or add additional cooling fan to help cooling down your computer. And we also suggest you can contact your system supplier and see if they help you to check your system temperature directly.

    Meanwhile, you can remove the CPU fan and re-apply the thermal paste and see if it works. However, we do not suggest you to remove the heatsink which will void the warranty. If you worry about it, please kindly contact your supplier and let them help you. Thank you."

    I am not sure how I can squish in more thermal paste without removing the heatsink!! hehe

    I think I will go ahead and replace the thermal paste anyway as long as there isn't one of those VOID WARRANTY stickers.
    I am thinking that the massively high motherboard temperature is because the heat isn't getting to the heat sync because of the crappy thermal goop and so dissipates out through the motherboard instead.

    Wow, that bolded comment is crazy contradictory!

    I don't think they care as long as you do it properly and cleanly, like don't use conductive paste on NB chipsets, and don't overdo it such much it pours out the side down into the CPU.

    I know many people change the paste under their northbridge heatsinks, and then RMA later without issues, so this should be the same as long as you do it properly.

    I changed the very thick rock hard gunk that was on the North Bridge and CPU with Tuniq TX-2 and it made absolutely no difference!

    I figure the sensors must be wrong as something this low power shouldn't be able to make that much heat.

    where are you looking for mb temps? windows or bios? stuck sensors or buggy software isnt uncommon,i have wild reports of mb temp with this board,sometimes it says -22c and sometimes 102c,but in bios it always reports 24c so its probably software related

    EDIT: here i just looked at my mb temp its reading 0c,best to feel the heatsinks they should be warmish but not too hot to touch

    TX-2 rocks, so it should have definitely made a difference, so I think you are right, either the sensors are stuck or for some reason it's not being detected properly.

    What happens if you crank up the voltage for a short test, does it get much hotter? If you don't know, try it for a few minutes and see how the temps react.

    I opened the case last night and had a feel around.
    Hardly any heat at all and the CPU heatsink was only just warm.

    Looking at the temps the Motherboard, CPU and Aux are always the same temperature.

    The board is going to be fine so I give up.
    Just thought it very odd that a super low power machine would have an idle CPU at 50+c.

    Cheers for all the suggestions and help.

    And the PC health section of the BIOS also shows the same temp as softwares? If so, it must just be a buggy set of sensors, otherwise temps should go down with the case open (And your paste change of course)

    Have you tested with the case open, and maybe an additional 2-3 120MM fans blowing into there? If not you could test like that and see if anything changes, if not then it would have to be faulty sensors for sure, or a BIOS bug maybe.

    Unfortunately this is the home server so people aren't too happy when it goes offline. Also it is headless so I would need to put on a keyboard and monitor.

    Next time I need to install new hardware I'll check the bios temps.

    Ahh, I see. Maybe you could check when everyone is gone at work, or sleeping?
