Asus says it is not normal. Even in a cold room. I don't believe this reading. I fear it's the software getting confused. However I installed HV Monitor to get a second opinion and it reported the same thing. What do you all think? Ignore this? Open up the PC and look to see if it's dusty? I initially would say ignore as this is a known bug in Speccy, but with a second program reporting the same, it would be worth investigating.
Thanks for your reply MTA 1. It's physically impossible. Unless something that is plugged in is always on and hot. The test for that would be to unplug everything tonight, plug in tomorrow morning. And I will. The PC is only 8 months old.
I bought it so that I could 'easily' open it. Turns out the nifty little screws are hidden deep and require a weird Philips screw driver long but thin.
I don't want to open it because I've got a bad feeling getting the screws back in won't be pretty. I'll send it into support if it comes to it. Wjhat I did do is put a vacuum up to the vents to get whatever dust might be lingering. There's only one fan in the unit and it's behaving normally in every way.
I'm ripping a DVD file right now. This usually makes the fan come on and heat up the unit a little. Look at the difference from above to now -- The CPU is up significantly but the motherboard is pretty much in the same place.

I have both the mobo chip and the CPU watercooled, and by the looks of it, whatever is the aux is definitely not watercooled because it's been ten minutes since I stopped Prime95 and the aux temperature is still at 55C.

Where are temp sensors located on a motherboard?
Can i find them visually on my motherboard?VROC Key header. The ROG Rampage — reimagined. Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously.
Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits lead to phase doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.
While doublers help extend the number of effective phases, they do so at the cost of a processing delay. However, the current crop of CPUs pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally dense workloads at an incredible pace. As an added bonus, they also consume less power at idle and can transition between loads states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power design priorities because phase doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response.
The teamed architecture allows two power stages to work in tandem to provide more power to the CPU. Fortunately, the latest Integrated power components can handle higher currents than the devices of yesteryear, making it possible to implement a simple circuit topology that isn't hamstrung by the processing lag of phase doublers. That's why our X motherboards utilize teamed power stages to deliver higher burst current per phase, while maintaining the thermal performance of phase-doubled designs.
Learn more about Thermal Comparison Result. Pitting the teamed VRM against a phase-doubled solution results in near identical thermal performance.
Each VRM component serves a specific purpose. PWM controllers and doublers control the circuit, and the power stages do the heavy lifting from an electrical and thermal standpoint. Power Connector. Power Stage. Polymer Capacitor. MicroFine alloy chokes Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
Polymer solid capacitor To further optimize transient response, we've added 8 SP-capacitors to the power plane. The resulting bulk capacitance results in a OptiMem III is a major milestone in our pursuit to create motherboards that offer the most memory overclocking headroom. When applied to the X platform, OptiMem III increases frequency margin to the point that the board is no longer a bottleneck.
