High Motherboard temps - 80c+

Hello All - I am experience high Motherboard temps whenever I start a Win10 VM, and sometimes when idle.


My typical idle temps, are 45c CPU, and 57-60c mobo.  This by itself feels high.

If I have 1 or 2 plex streams running, temps may raise a degree or 2, but nothing that worries me.


The issue comes whenever I start a Win10 VM.  It is a basic web browsing VM that my wife RDPs to from a chromebook so she can work in a windows ecosystem.  It has 4 cores, and 6 GB RAM.


Whenever it is running, my temps go up to 60c CPU and 80c mobo, and hold there until I stop the VM, and almost immediately drop back to 50 / 70.


I am using the Dynamix System Temp plugin.  I used the auto-driver download and it has me on coretemp jc42 drivers.


My disk temps mostly idle between 25c-35c.  Cache SSD spikes sometimes if I am moving a lot of data and forget to turn off cache.


Please see below snapshots for other server / system details.


I would really appreciate any feedback on this issue.  Its been frustrating me because I.mnot comfortable leaving my VM always on, which i would like to be able to do so my wife doesn't have to tell me when she needs to use it.


Case: Rosewill 4u 15 bay - stock fan setup.

You probably picked the wrong sensor for Motherboard temperature.

The "Sensors" section is where you are supposed to pick which of the various sensors correspond to your motherboard (and CPU).
