If you can, just return it and get the motherboard replaced.
First of all, thank you very much for your reply, you said that your motherboard was changed? Oh God, it's bad news for me...
Sending back the laptop cost me $250 US, and i have no time for this, because i'm in Caracas - Venezuela (South America), i bought it, few weeks ago, when i trip to USA, on january i will trip to Lisbon-Portugal, i will stay there for a year.
I contact Asus Support and they said me that may be the FAN have some problem.
I test all you describe here and my temps are still the same
On idle mode at 1700mhz my temps running between 80 and 90 C the Fan start at 90 C, when i run at 600 Mhz my temps run at 75 and 80 C... and fan start at 80 C and turn off at 70 C.
I will start my searching finding a new fan, and change it, to see if it resolve the problem...But it is anothe dilema...
