Default Mobo temp

Hey guys,
I just got my comp up and running. My cpu is running idle at 33C and my mobo is at 34C. I was just wondering, what is a good temp for a mobo?

Intel Quad 6600, Asus P5N-E SLI, GeForce GTX 560 1GB, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Zalman 9700NT, X-Fi Xtreme Gamer, 650 watt PSU

That's fine, the mobo temp is really just the temperature inside the case.

what kinda case u got... if u can i would add some more case fans.. that would drop ur mobo temps.. there high cuz the heat coming off ur CPU and u probably dont have sufficient air flow...

OH YEAH, thats actually fine for temps.../\that was a consideration

I do believe the pcb threshold is 45C.

Personally I try to restrict my board to around 30-32C, the temp probe is near the Super IO chip which is usually (on Asus boards) just to the right of your ram, check your manual for location.

I have a fan stuck with double sided tape to my m/board tray that blows "down" the ram sticks cooling them which also cools the immediate area of the m/board temp probe.
