You know it's wrong when it tells you your mobo temp is only three degrees above ambient, extremely unlikely, stick your thermometer in there for ten minutes with the case closed and check it out.[snipped]I've had the thermometer inside the case for about half an hour, and it reads 24 degrees! So the mobo sensor seems correct.
Mobo temps depend heavily on where the sensor is anyway. Often they sit in a patch of dead air near a hot component. I'd be a bit worried if any airflow temp was 10C above ambient - exhaust temps should be lower than that.
As BigH2K has CPU temps around 6C lower than yours with a substantially superior HSF, I'd say that there's no actual problem here except that the 45nm Intel chips run a bit hot. This isn't that surprising, given that they have half the die area of the 65nm chips and more than half the power consumption.
