I posted about an issue I was having with my GPU a couple of months ago. I got that issue sorted out, but I'm still having an issue with my new PSU running temps of 50C even with just the Windows desktop open. Here is a link to my original forum that has a history of the issue and all my system specs. Thanks for the help!

For the record, that temp is coming from running SpeedFan. If I put my hand up to the exhaust from from the PSU the air is cool.

Hello mlcmoose06,

 

From my reply #9 in your previous thread;

 

if you look at your HWMonitor and Speedfan screenshots you will note that there is a high reading of 51C for AUX and AUXTIN, this is the power supply temp sensor when there is one 

 

 

note the underlined, your MB has a power fan header available but your PSU does not need or have a cable to connect to this as it has a built-in intelligent temperature control device, the reading that you are seeing is most likely the temp of the Super I/O chip and is not overly hot, if you are not having any issues such as freezing/lock ups then I would not worry about the temp but at the same time would monitor it, during and after any gaming  would give a better idea of the highest temps.

I noticed that in your comment as well and wondered if the PSU might not have the sensor as well. Thanks for your help again! I will definitely monitor the temp.
