My HW Monitor readout: http://i.imgur.com/U1u34Ur.png?1

Value tab corresponds to idle temps, Max tab corresponds to temps seen when running a 15-minute benchmark that puts the GPU under 100% load. Ignore the Min temps as that was when the PC just booted up from cold.

What is typically considered to be normal idle temps? When do you need to start getting worried?

Based on the above HW Monitor read-out, is my motherboard temps OK for when under full load and when idle?

Also, which of the five components actually correspond to my main motherboard temperature? There are five listed: TZ00, TZ01, TMPIN0, TMPIN1 and TMPIN2. I have a feeling TMPIN 2 corresponds to the CPU temp, as they are alwas very similar. But I have no idea what the rest refer to.

Thanks!

No, I'm talking about the motherboard temps specifically. At what point does the motherboard fail or shut down due to excessive temperatures?

Also, that 67.5C for the i5 3330 is the T-CASE temperatures, not actual core temperatures. According to various posts on the Internet, this value is between 15-25C lower than the actual max core temps permissable. http://ark.intel.com/products/65509/Intel-Core-i5-3330-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz

Motherboards don't shut down from overheating.

But surely there must be a guidance on what "acceptable" and :dangerous" motherboard temperatures are right?

Also, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help explain what components on the motherboard TMPIN0, TMPIN1 and TMPIN2 refer to respectively.
