Asus P8Z68-V Pro Temperature


Nov 16, 2011
Hey all, asked a question earlier about my CPU temps and have a similar question about my Mobo Temps.

Here are my specs:
Asus P8Z68-V Pro
EVGA 560 Ti
Patriot DDR3 1600 8GB 2 X 4GB sticks
Corsair GS700w PSU
Windows 7 64bit
Coolermaster 212 Plus with extra fan for push pull setup
500R case with awesome cable management so airflow is perfect.

I have overclocked it to 4.6 and with a few voltage tweaks, ran Prime95 overnight and no BSoD or other problems. Core temps ran right under 70c with Prime95 and idles at around 25c, but everyday to day usage it maxs around 45c while watching with Core Temp 1.0. Dropped it down to stock though, was just seeing what a safe overclock and voltage was for when I do need it.

On to my question. I have been leaving it running 24/7 just to make sure everything is in tip top shape and it has. Mobo Temp usually stays around 27-30c. Today out of the blue the Asus monitoring program pops up warning me my Mobo temp is hitting 234c (450 ish F). I look at my computer and do not see my mobo melting before my eyes, so I am a little confused. Just a faulty sensor or what, anybody else seen this? Going to update my bios today and see if that fixes it. Thanks in advance for any insight into this.
