Asus has one of the worst, If not the worst temperature monitors on the planet...If you really want to know what your temps are get you a Lian-Li T-4 temperature monitor racks and let the "compu-nurse" give accurate temperatures...Not that hard to install and not that expensive...There are other "hardware" temperature monitors out there...Vantec, Thermaltake...:D

Could you give us some info on your sys? Asus has been pretty bad when it come to thier temp readings, but with this board the temps don't seem to be off so bad. What cpu are you using @ what vcore and also what Heatsink and fan are you using? Also what bios revision are you using?

With a volcano 7+, those temps are too high, what is the room temps? How many case fans do you have? You may try with the side panel off and a fan blowing in there and see if the temps come down. When I had my volcano 7+, I ran it on med with the same load temps at 1.7vcore but the bios temps weren't that far off. You might want to try Motherboard Monitor to see if you get any different readings, and with MBM you can read the ondie temp sensor.
