Are you using the latest bios for your board ? Anyway the 79c temp sensor isn't the cpu temperature if it's always at that value.
It quite possibly be a stuck temperature sensor. It is not an uncommon fault.
You should see what is the reported CPU temperature in BIOS then try an overclock if it's safe.
Hi there,I have tested a lot of different apps to show my 1090T's temp in conjunction with a couple of hardware sensors and I have found that Core Temp is pretty good ( get it here: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ ). If you are running Windows you can set it up to show the temp in the Notification Area of the toolbar and it starts up with the PC.If BIOS is showing the temp as 36°C and your software is showing at a constant 79°C, I doubt there is a stuck sensor and it is more than likely a software glitch rather than a problem with the hardware, so I don't think changing the Mobo over something like this is really practical.Good luck with the rest over your overclocking attempts but, if I may add a note of caution, watch out as the Max Temp for the 965 is 62°C!
As I don't have this particular Mobo, I'm unable to check out if there is an overall problem with it or specific to your board.It might be worthwhile raising a query with Gigabyte Technical Support as it might be something they are (are not) aware of and pointing it to them could help.
Yes, you can post images but you need to use a host such as Imageshack to upload them to.You can find detail of how to post images here: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,22.0.html
