Those values are really low. Tried them, but the CPU fan (Scythe Shuriken) stops @33% (E5200 so doesn't matter, 30C at idle). Same in my case with a TT Silentcat 80mm. Stops in the mid 40%.

I have an 80mm fan running at 1000rpm next to it at the moment which keeps the temps below 50C and is pretty much silent.
The high temperatures may have been aggravated by the fact that I used an aftermarket CPU cooler that transferred the heat to fins next to the rear case fans, i.e. without a fan sitting on top of the CPU blowing air down on it, rather than the stock Intel cooler that may have provided some cooling to the GPU as well.
The GPU-temp really seems dependend on both CPU and Case fans. Burned my fingers when fans were at minimal possible speed and case open; GPU was to 70C+. With fans at reasonable speed, GPU is well below 40C.
I do have issues with reading the RPM of the back-fan(s) though. At low RPM it is reasonable ok, but at higer values it gives insane values (10.000RPM+).

I do have some issues with the board. Put in 4 Kingston HyperX KHX6400D2LLK2/2GN 's (4GB). They boot @667 with 5-5-5-16 latencies. When I go to the BIOS, I can't use the EPP profiles, so I need to set them by hand to 800. They work with the same latencies, but not with 4-4-4-12 @2.1v. Might be something in the advanced timing, but I have no clue where to find those (can you read those out, e.g. the EPP profile? CPU-Z only gives the 4-4-4-12 timings).
DES and ET6 don't seem to work. ET6 crashes on startup (error in GUI.exe). DES says I need to uninstall and download an advanced version from Gigabyte. I did, but no joy, same error message. Sigh, now I know why I never install those darn utilities. Even did a BIOS upgrade with the included app. Wiped out all the settings :-(
One other issue I stumbled across is that I don't have direct access to the drives for SMART and other drive diagnostics (HDD Scan)? Nor can I find the temp sensors for them?
Last, I noticed in the BIOS there where settings for sleep states (S2 and S4). They were disabled by default. Any use turning those on?
PS: Anyone here with an OrigenAE Case? Powerled on a S16T stays orange when turned on, instead of blue. Checked all the cable and wiring, but it doesn't really match the thin booklet. Seems it uses the 5v on a molex to see whether it is on or off (why not use the darn connection on the MB?) which is connected, but... doesn't do a thing with it.
