That has to be seen as no computer part should ever be that hot..

I would also address your cooling. Does the exhausted air feel cool, warm, or hot? Having more air entering the case than leaving is not necessarily a good thing, as my opinion is that it should be balanced. Fans should not be used to force air; rather they should be used to assist the natural flow of air through the case. A simple analogy to the arrangement you have, where you have more air going in than out, is a simple bicycle pump. If you hold the pump at the bottom end where the hose normally attaches (but not blocking the hole) and pump away, you will notice that it remains relatively cool. Now block the hole with your thumb and pump again. Notice how it starts to warm up quite quickly. The same thing also happens to PCs if the cooling system doesn't function effectively.
Thanks for that info on cooling.
Cool air is being pulled in and pushed out. i will adjust the rear to run faster since it has a controller. as for the TIM i will have to wait till i get cash when im back at work in 2 weeks. I literally used every penny to buy a new HDD after mine failed. I should mention now im conscious about noise, it agitates me xD

This is normal with gigabyte motherboards.
Check it on systemfan, it will show up around the 90's as well.

My motherboard has the exact same reading, and it's been running like that for years.

Well you do know if the Mofest start to get extremely hot and it isn't a top grade board it will end up blowing up capacitors and all pretty much you want to avoid Overly Hot Mosfets because you attempt to Overclock go ahead and just pour gas on it and light it because you will have a toaster on your hands

If you want to be double sure use another prog like the boards sensor control in bios and then you will be sure

true guys, But according to the website it uses a 3+1 VRM Phase, and high grade "japanese" capacitors (Stable system operation depends upon the quality of CPU VRM (voltage regulator module). GIGABYTE adopts Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid Capacitors for CPU VRM to ensure a longer lifespan for systems in daily operation and boost system stability under extreme conditions. CPU VRM with Solid Capacitors featuring better electronic conductivity, excellent heat resistance enhances system durability even operating in high temperature environment.)

xD, dont know if they are rubbing the details in juicy sauce but i do take extra care with temps, a blown board is not on my list of things i want to happen

Well thanks for all your help guys, i will wait to buy some TIM before i can do anything else...

question here: what is the average life of a motherboard, I have had this since august 2010 so its had a good run considerering the stress ive put it through, (extreme 4ghz+ overclocking, Underclocking, Undervolting, bios modding, the only thing i have replaced in this system since i bought it was the GPU and cpu cooler and more ram and hdd..

So it may be time i upgrade anyway to a atx with SATA III, Intel and crossfire :3 my cpu is now a bottleneck to the rest.
