HWiNFO64 will also give you temps for your motherboard, make sure you have it open when gaming to see the max temps afterwards, this will let you know whether you need to adjust. When you're satisfied then you can game freely knowing that everything is running just fine.
That motherboard seems pretty cool, make sure you download CPU-Z and check memory, this is something that I didn't do. Since you have 1866Mhz it should read 933 and if it's set to auto you have to change the profile to XMP in the BIOS. Make sure you have those temps alright first though. By the way, I have 1600Mhz for my RAM and before the BIOS fix it was running at 1333Mhz max, I think yours might be doing the same.
You can also use MSI AB and HWiNFO combined to give you CPU and GPU temps in the corner of your screen when gaming, I do it all the time. For MSI AB just go to settings and tick Show in on-screen display in the monitoring tab, getting it to work with HWiFNO64 to show CPU temps is tricky, I can link you a guide on YouTube for it if you want.Edited by SteZHD - 6/11/13 at 8:44am
