Default mobo temps to high?

I've been Oc'ing my cpu for the past few days and it seems to be stable @3.9ghz/55C max load/1.552v .I'm fine with that but my motherboard hits 60C is this dangerous? I realise the mobo isnt at 60c in the pic as i just ran prime for a min or so to get a screen shot

System specs
cpu-amd 945 3ghz
mobo-gigabyte 890GPA-ud3h
Heatsink-Zalman 9700nt
case-CM storm scout(5 fans)
ram-3gb ddr3 ram
gpu-gtx 260 216
HDD-750gb seagate

while the heatsinks are quite nice, they do need airflow. serious airflow, like a stock cpu cooler running hard pushing down on the board warm air. yes warm air, but still having some flow.

seeing that you don't use a stock cooler, the general area is somewhat starved.

so yeah it can be normal in the 60c on prime and such :)

im not convinced it will be a huge improvement :)

anyway those temps are not the end of the worlde. you can have a fan at a certain angle blowing down on it, takes 5 minutes and some zipties :)

Lol. I did that with my old 8200m chipset. I was able to zip tie it right to the heatsink. Didn't stop it from dying though :S

I'm a bit iffy on those temperature sensors for components other than the CPU. Touch the heatsink and see if it feels like 58*C
