Are there any issues with the temp monitoring with the MSI nForce board. I just have a new system and when I ran the PC Alert it started screaming that the temps where too high. It gives a CPU temp of 67C and a case temp of 37C these are at idle. Removing the side of the case made no change.
Any ideas?

I am not familiar with that board, but would reseat the heatsink if I were you. Make sure it is not cocked or uneven and that it makes good contact with the core (no gap) and has proper thermal grease applied.

Try something like Motherboard Monitor, which you can grab here: And as mentioned above, make sure that the thermal grease is applied properly. Also, is the CPU fan on? :wink:
