Sure this aint just a need of a BIOS Update?

If not go buy some northbridge heatsinks for ur NB.

Or return the mobo.....it shouldnt do that

Well first of all id consider a bios update (some old versions give incorrect temps).

Then if its a new board and the update doesnt fix.. return it to retailer due to faultyness.

But if you get a heatsink with a lil fan it;ll be like <30C

it will drop it 20 degrrees celcius

it is a brand new board so it shouldnt need a bios update should it

p.s how do u go about updating ur bios

Great, on that cd, pop it in till it autoloads. Then click on utilities or summing, looking for asus update of some sort, youll find it. Install it. Run it, then you want to flash your bios to the latest version automaticly from their website, the proggies guides you through.

what type of chipset are you talking about?

When you say that the Mobo is overheating do you mean the northbridge?
