In general, 42c is not a problem for any of the motherboard sensors. Temps 70 or over would get me a little nervous.

But it would be nice to see them all to make sure. I use HWMONITOR, and sidebar gadget. With I can check current temps see what the highs were since boot.

No Worries

My PCH stays between 43c and 47c, even at idle, so yeah, you're fine. BTW, I use HWiNFO64 to monitor temps and CPU, VGA & RAM load. It works great and shows all you're sensors and voltages (I run 6 of them in the system tray for easy monitoring).

I use HWMONITOR too, chipset temps shows idle at 34c and under load at 42c, its summer here so i'm expecting it'll get a little hotter than this. temperatures of cpu, gpu, & hdd were fine though. tnx for the help...:)

pfft. run HWiNFO so then you can put stuff in your RTSS (the OSD of Afterburner/Precision/RivaTuner), fully customisable :3

mines basic, i don't customise the font or anything, but you can pretty much do anything with HWiNFO and RTSS, change the fot, labels, position, listing order...
