Hi there,
I have a Gigabyte H61 motherboard http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3778
For the first time ever i have a cpu that doesn't exceed 50C in idle (idling at 26C)
but now i have a different problem. My Motherboard idles at around 45C and under load it can go upwards of 54C
is it normal?
