Surely that motherboard came with software to install to monitor CPU temps at desktop?

IF not try speed fan. SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

I believe it should work for your system.

which temp did you end up using? What kind of cpu fan/cooler do you have? What kind of thermal paste did you use?

Right now i have the factory cpu fan/cooler that the cpu came with. it also came with some crappy thermal paste that looks pretty bad right now. u think that putting fresh thermal paste on it will work?

Putting fresh thermal paste could help. If that doesnt help bring down the temps any looks to a after market heatsink/fan setup.

are you overclocking? what is the cpu voltage?
I used arctic silver during build. E6850 temps in low 30's C, I'm not oc'ed; when I do 3.3ghz temps climb in the 40's. I'm not saying for sure if its your termal paste but it's a possibility. here's some good info from forums Big problem... CPU + Thermal Paste
I use Zalman fan Rate the Wire Management Above You! ,but some don't likey. When I compare the asus probe temp sensors that came with the motherboard software it shows my temps in high 20'sC. I trust core temp's over asus'

Honestly, the absolute best product to remove thermal paste and purify the CPU IHS & HS is:
ArctiClean by Arctic Silver

Get both the cleaner and purifier. The cleaner is a citrus based product that is INCREDIBLE at breaking down any thermal material so it easily just wipes off with a few wipes. The purifier removes left-over residue.

I've tried every suggestion and NOTHING works faster or better than that. I've had those for about 3 years and I wouldn't use anything else. (I sound like an infomercial. lol)

Seriously, though... It's the best.
