    Nah, 60C under load is okay. Everything looks good to me. :)

    I got two times PC Probe alarm after an hour or so of playing, MB temperature went to 46, so is it dangerous temperature or it gives alarm as a warning...
    Maybe to rearange cables in the case?

    There is something definitely wrong with the board...
    I played Crysis now and the PC restarted and when I turned it on again and PC Probe showed me motherboard temperature 49C...
    Nothing is overclocked except the graphics card...

    I'd check the CPU temps too. Also, try re-seating the CPU HSF and re-applying the thermal compound. You might try adding more fans to the case and keeping it in an air-conditioned room.

    Well, the CPU goes to 60-65 under load, but as soon as I minimize the game, it decreases to 45, and then after some time goes back to 35...
    I've read that people are running this board at 55C, and my friend has Abit MB which has alarm on 55, so should I also raise the sensor sensibility?
    I will also get 1-2 fans as soon as possible, but I would like to be able to play 1-2 hours without interruptions...
