Today I built myself a low/mid range gaming rig, nothing complex just an i3 2100 with GTX 460. Everything went fine and I got Windows 7 installed. I installed Speccy (http://www.piriform.com/speccy) to get some system info and to my surprise it reported my MoBo temperature was fluctuating between 80 and 90 degrees Celsius while idle =S (112 - 130 Fahrenheit). All other components are running between 20-35 degrees, so it doesn't seem to be an airflow issue.
I rebooted into BIOS to check there, but it reported the MoBo was only 25 degrees which didn't seem right since it shouldn't have cooled that quickly...should it?
So I looked on the Asus website and found their diagnostic tool and ran a stress test. Amazingly the MoBo temp dropped to 68 degrees during the CPU part of the test, and 78 during the GPU test. As far as I can tell the fans did not increase their speed during this test. I am at a complete loss why this happened.
Is it possible that there is a bug in Speccy? What other tools can I use to get the MoBo temp? Everything I can seem to find only does CPU temp.
EDIT: Also, no components on the MoBo are hot to touch after I shut it down, which seems weird to me.
