Hi J...

Although I suspect you may be talking about your processor (idle temp)I am not absolutely clear..  Are you referring to the processor or the 'motherboard' temperature...?

Hi J..

The 'motherboard' temperature sensor is located behind PCIEX1_2....  and gets affected by the video card.  But 80c is way too hot... even for a system that can do SLI which yours can not...  So I think that either you have a case cooling problem... or the sensor is defective. 

You can check the sensor with a can of compressed air.  With the system running and the side of the case off, start up Asus Probe...  Then shoot some air behind PCIEX1_2 and watch the 'motherboard' temperature reading...  if it goes down, you have a case cooling problem..  If it doesn't, you have a sensor problem.
