Can someone help me find the safe temp my mobo should be running at? What do you consider a safe temp for a mobo?

Your talking about the temp monitor that is on your motherboard I assume. This temp reader is just there to give you your case temp. The cooler the better. Depending where they put it, it should be around 0-10C above your room temp.

wow, I know you have 4 case fans. Are two blowing in at the bottom front, and the other two blowing out, plus the PS fan? What case do you have? Take off your side panel and see if it goes down.

One mobo I had had the temp diode right next to the agp slot right where the GPU would blow hot air on it.

I'll have to try that sometime tonight I don't have time right now. I have side case fas blowing in, and one in front bottom. Back, ps, and top cases fans blowing out. Also I'm not OC so temp shouldnt be high at all. I'll edit this post and submit what happens when I get a chance to take off the side panel and find my diode.
