Hi SNO, this one is strange, with the i3 I was seeing 38c and with a low power i5 I'm seeing the same. In the Car-PC MB they show around 29c. The MB temp shows 42c on this new MB. Thing is, the CPU controlled fan is throttled back to inaudible and CPU HS feels cold, MB chipset HS is barely warm to touch. Those reading are via the bios and from HWinfo64 as I don't use GB MB utility's. BTW I'm running the supplied CPU cooler.
