No worries. I downloaded the manual for your motherboard but couldn't find any mention of maximum operating temperature. Where did you find this information?

I read too, but I didn’t find anything.
I found the information in the official program of Asus (the Asus suite) there is an alert set up to 60ºC max. to the motherboard and 76ºC to the processor.

Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

Ahh, that is probably a user-adjustable setting so you can keep tabs on your heat without actually monitoring it visually all the time. I would not be concerned about it.

great! but what would you say that is the temperature limit for the motherboard?

I've never heard of a temp limit for the board itself... Your northbridge will get pretty hot. I believe mine has been causing crashes because of the lack of airflow in this case. I'll be purchasing one of these, and replacing the stock northbridge heatsink with it, in hopes that it will fix, or at least reduce, my problems.

That's what I'd considered before getting the 7750. It's hard to say whether it would be a good idea with this case or not... normally you have 'some' kind of air circulation in a case, because of the case fans and such... with no fans at all, the card would just sit in their own heat.

If I were to get one, I'd consider this 6450 by Gigabyte. It has a decent size heatsink, and good reviews. I liked this one from ASUS as well, but the heatsink looks like it might not be as efficient.

Thank you for your answer, but i'm getting worried with the temperatures of my motherboard, and I think that GPU, wont help. I read on another forum that the circuits of the motherboards shoudn't be more than 60ºC which makes sense.

Ah no worries. Perhaps when I have some extra money lying around I'll order one just for experimentation purposes smile.gif

First, SpyderMS nice build men! You are in the limit with this case! Congrats.

I've built a computer with this case, the Streacom F8 EVO, it's awesome but I'm having some issues too. But firstly, I'd like to describe the components I chose to use:

1. Asus p8h77-i
2. I3 3225
3. Pico psu (150 watts)
4. Kingston 4gb ram memory
5. Crucial m4 ssd 128 GB

The temperatures of the core are around 60ºc (not Fahrenheit) when I’m using the XBMC, but with the Aeon skin (for those that doesn’t know this is a heavy load skin), this temperatures are ok for my, I set up the limit on 72ºC, the problem I found is on the motherboard, because the temperatures rise up to 60ºC, and this is the limit that the Asus suite sets to the motherboard, I’m getting worry. Someone has any ideas on that?

P.S. Sorry if I haven’t express good, English isn’t my first language

Hi, finally I've managed to built my HTPC using Streacom FC8 EVO. My built is very similar
1. Asus P8H61-I rev. 2.0
2. i3 3220T (35 TDP)
3. NanoPSU 150W (the one from Streacom)
4. G.Skill 2x2GB RAM
5. Samsung 830 SSD 64GB

CPU temp. around 45ºC. MB arodun 40ºC.
OS is Windows 8, almost no programs, only xbmc.
So I think your temps could be lower. I found info that using better thermal grease helps.

I tried to play SW: The Force Unleashed 2 - playable only on low details smile.gif However wireless Xbox 360 controller (via usb adapter) works perfectly. So for now I stick with my console for gaming smile.gif

I've encountered problem with remote (usb eHome reiver plus Harmony remote). I tried to power on/off with remote but I couldn't achive it with my motherboard. I managed to power on from power off state with mouse click (cable connection), with WOL, but no success with remote frown.gif

I wrote to ASUS is there any hidden BIOS setting (similar to ASRock mobos). Unfortuantelly USB header is not powered by 5V SB (pin 9, the vilolet one) and my Streacom (wesena) internal IR Receiver is useless.
