Stock VCore is 1.35V.

When everything is on default in the BIOS, the A8N32-SLI Deluxe WILL overvolt the VCore. As I recall, the default setting is 1.425V, which means it's putting out more voltage than the CPU actually needs at stock speeds.

Change the VCore to 1.35V, and check the TIM application; too much is more problematic than too little, in most cases.

Ambient temperature is basically just the temperature of the environment the computer is in. I've got a thermometer in my bedroom just for this purpose.

Ambient temperature is a big determinant for your system's temperature, as the system's temperature will always be higher than the environment's (unless you've got a really exotic cooling system like phase change or liquid Nitrogen). The higher the ambients, the higher the system temperatures.

Thanks for all the info man

Dont have any thermometers lying around but its winter here and my rooms not even that warm.

Im thinking it may just be a case of turning all the case fans up because the motherboard temp is actually higher than the cpu temp at idle and the copper heat pipe thing spanning the mother board is mega hot.

Got all the case fans on low because its like a jet engine on high but i guess you cant have everything
