Mobo temps... too high?

I'm a bit concerned about my mobo temp. My processor never even breaks 50C but my motherboard is currently at 51C. Fanspeed shows a little "fire" icon next to this temp, which is why I'm concerned. What is an acceptable temperature for this motherboard? I've really never had to worry about the mobo temps before, so this is all beyond me. It does seem odd, though, that the mobo would exceed the temp. of the overclocked processor. Oh, and I'm using an Ultra-90 tower with nexus fan, so it isn't stock cooling on the C2D.

 

In short, is my northbridge about to catch fire? lol

 

Thanks in advance.

 

*Edit* it looks like I made a typo in the title... it's an Asus P5N-E 650i, in case there was confusion.

if you have good air flow in your case, that is normally sufficient enough for the northbridge, however you can look into northbridge coolers but, meh i never found them that impressive or even useful
