I'm running a Core 2 Quad Q6600. The fan is supposedly running at about 1985 RMP. My temperatures are:

Motherboard 84 C (183 F)
GPU 60 C (140 F)
GPU Ambient 48 C (118 F)
CPU 60 C (140 F)

Lately I've noticed my machine pausing on memory test during the bootup and it started to freeze very often. I ordered some new cooling paste and am going to reapply that but I was wondering if these temperatures are ok, if they could be causing my freeze-ups and how to go about fixing them?

"Motherboard 84 C (183 F)"

All I can say is WOW !

What brand & model is the motherboard.

You need to open the case & see if a heatsink has fell off of a chipset or if it has a fan that has failed.

I've got a EVGA 132-YW-E179-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI ATX. My case has a window and from the looks of it everything is working ok. I'll open it up and take a closer look tho.

NVM, that temperature was an error. I downloaded another software and it's giving me a mobo temperature of 42 Celcius so its all ok.
