How can I safely test my mobo for max acceptable temp?

How can I know if my mobo is close to max acceptable temp? Will my computer run slower, etc, etc?

Although I don't have your exact board, I have one very similar with the same cooling setup. Mine usually stays around 35*C. I'm pretty sure motherboards are good up till about 50*C but I could be wrong. I use the Asus PcProbe software that came on the installation CD. You can also download it from the Asus website.

That's fine. Like I said anything under 50*C is acceptable as far as I know. I've even seen some boards higher than that. Don't worry m8!
