Default help!!!! motherboard temperature!!!

please help me!!

i use an ASUS A8N-E mobo and the ASUS Probe utility that came with the system reports anything from 32 C to 36C when the system starts but then after some time shows 42C and higher!!
although there are no signs of unstability but sometimes only when there is significant HDD when running DC++ the system abruptly turns shutdown...but power off!!

my questions are:
1. Is the temperature of the mobo ok!!
2. Why does the system turns off without warning

i use 2 X 160GB SATA Seagate HDDs in RAID 0 configuration!! and have faced no data corruption problems!!

Does it turn off at any other time other than running DC++, like for instance when ur booting or when it's just idle'in ?????

I think the temperature is fine, mine is 49, I'm in a hot climate !!

i would say its a power related issue if the pc turns completely off. is that the chipset temp or the cpu temp? if its the cpu its fine. its normal for the temps of just about anything in your computer to increase by that margin during use.
