    Default Asus Maximus Extreme

    I'm getting really hot temps on this board.

    MB 49C while using Firefox
    NB 57C while using Firefox
    SB 49C while using Firefox

    The case is in my hardware specs, it has 2x80mm front intake fans 80mm top intake and a 80mm exhaust in back. I alos have a AC Freezer 7 blowing toward that rear exhaust, but I'm not really concerned because CPU is running at 24C.

    I've been looking around and I can't find much info on temperature from people who aren't already overclocking or watercooling. Can anyone confirm if these temps are normal? Seems hot and I haven't even tried gaming yet. Got any recommendations?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm actually down to

    MB 46C
    NB 51C
    SB 46C

    since I disabled Q-Fan or whatever that bios automatic fan control feature was. Seems odd that there would be such a drop since the target temp was set to 34C so the automatic fan control (at performance) should have been working at full speed.

    Anyway, this is still hot. Anyone have any bios settings that may help me?

    well i did it before i connected the power cords the actual components in my computer, but i took dry ice an water to make steam. or smoke or whatever and filled the case with the steam, and ran he fans to see how fast the smoke got out, and if all the smoke gets out quickly then i figured it has good airflow

    In 2005, ASUS shipped 52 million motherboards, which means one out of every 3 desktop PCs sold that year was powered by an ASUS motherboard. If we line them up side by side, the length will be longer than the distance from New York to San Francisco.
    ASUS products' top quality stems from product development. It's like learning Chinese Kung-Fu; one must begin with cultivating the "Chi" and inner strength. Besides innovating cutting-edge features, ASUS engineers also pay special attention to EMI (electromagnetic interference), thermal, acoustics and details that usually go unnoticed to achieve complete customer satisfaction. ASUS notebooks are the first TCO'99-certified notebooks worldwide. The requirements for this honor include radiation emission control, energy (battery consumption), ecology (environment friendly) and ergonomics.

    Only if you have the specialized knowledge and cooling to accomplish that. And they're far more touchy as a result and difficult to work with. ASUS boards tend to be easier, just set your OC and call it a day. And for the vast majority of people I think that is far more preferred than squeezing out a couple extra MHz.
