    High IOH temps on Rampage III Extreme

    Just put together my first build, and the IOH temp is reading at 87 degrees C at idle (just running BIOS), with all the fans on high. Here's the specs:

    ASUS ROG Rampage Extreme III
    Intel i7 960
    Zalman CNPS9900A cpu cooler
    BIOS v1401 (the latest version)

    I took the Zalman cooler out, cleaned off the old thermal paste, put new paste on and re-attached the thing, but that didn't help.
    ASUS tech support had me take out the CMOS battery and put it back in, then go buy a new CMOS battery, but neither worked. I suggested it might be a bad sensor, but he didn't think much of that idea.

    Has anyone come across this before?

    Thanks,
    naos

    Oh, I forgot to add: the copper tubes on the Zalman cooler that come off the CPU are pretty cool (about room temperature) to the touch.
    Also, it's only 55 degrees F outside today.

    1. its 80 F or 80 C ?:] if 80C on STOCK setting
    All I think of is that the IOH block (not heatsink) is not seated on the nb properly.
    If you didnt oced it or changed nothing to IOH voltage in bios sent it on RMA .

    ps. dont forget to put back CPU cover plate when you will sent it back ...
