Temp1 has a check mark: 40C
Temp2 has a down arrow: 26C
Temp3 has a down arrow: -2C
...then comes Temp (no number at the end) with a ball of fiery death instead of an arrow or check mark: 65C!
Core0 and Core1 both have check marks and stay between 16 and 18C.
My problem is this: I don't see how this could happen. I have 2 fans that came with my tower, one sucking in cool air from the from the bottom part of the front of the tower, and one shooting hot air out of the top of the back of the tower. I also have a fan on my graphics card that runs fine. The CPU fan is up and running and the tower even has a nice cone shaped vent that shoots the air from the CPU fan directly to the outside of the tower. My power supply has a nice fan as well. The side of the PSU that is inside the tower sucks air out, and the side of the PSU that points out of the tower shoots air out.
So my question is this: does anyone have any idea why my Motherboard would be so damned hot? Touching the heatsink burns my finger; touching anywhere else on the motherboard reminds me of how unnecessarily hot it is. Something to note is that after originally building the computer, I could not get it to power on. I eventually realized that with the motherboard sitting directly on my tower, something was shorting out and preventing the power turning on. I decided to install the thin piece of foam that my motherboard came with between the motherboard and the tower. This fixed my problem immediately. I am starting to think, however, that this might have something to do with my problem. I'm just not sure.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. If you would rather send me a direct e-mail, feel free to do so. My address is removed
