Download and instal Intel Desktop Utilities for DP55WB board.
Thanks, the utilities worked perfectly. The processor thermal margin averages 60º C (idle). Is this a normal temperature ? Where can I get the normal temperatures for the i7 860 ?
[Edit: I just read what the thermal margin means, so the average now of 62º C must be very good.
P.S.: How do you get your thermal margin to rise to 75º C, boyet ?]

That number is very good. However, it is not a fix value since the margin is dependent on the CPU load (programs runned). To answer the question on getting a margin up to 75 (if that is possible for your case) your system should be performing less task. The normal temperature for your present situation is the difference between the max. rated CPU temp (get this from the spec of the CPU) and the margin value.
