Well, the machine's been running for a few hours since extracting a ton of dust from the CPU heatsink, and I've also installed Motherboard Monitor 5 to keep track of temperatures and such. Worst-case readings so far:

Case: 26 °C
CPU: 49°C
HDA: 47°C
HDB: 51°C

Core: 1.78 V

+5: 4.66 V (eek!)
+12: 12.42 V

CPU fan: 4530 RPM
