Well my system temperature is reaching high temps and I believe when it reaches 50c it causes my computer to freeze causing me to reboot. I would like to know where abouts on the motherboard is the object that falls under the System temperature category.

Re: System temperature too high
Do you still have your manual? If not download it from Gigabyte at this link:http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2637 Enter your bios & open manual to page 51, "PC Health Status". Here you can monitor the CPU temp, system temp & CPU fan speed. Notice the manual shows the example of system temp to be 30degs C & current CPU Temperature is at 47degs C. One would think these temps are reasonable. My CPU fan runs between 3308Rpm & 3341Rpm. CPU @ 41deg C & MB @ 31deg C. AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.21 GHz. Suggest you try this. If your running Win XP. Open system properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the settings button under Startup and Recovery. Remove the check mark to the left of, Automatically restart. Windows should provide an error message if & when the system freezes. This will help in finding what is causing the system to freeze. If your CPU fan is running under 3000Rpm you might consider buying a faster fan or add a case fan to the side of the case to help bring in fresh air to blow onto the CPU fan & PCI-Express card. Here is a decent lace to look for case fans: http://www.xoxide.com/casefans.html

Your fan is following the heat pattern of the CPU. As your computer does more stuff, like runs more applications, it has to work harder to make everything go. This creates heat that needs to be cooled by the fan. The fan usually has 2 settings, low, and high. When the CPU reaches a certain temperature the fan will switch into high gear to help cool it down.
hmm sounds like a faulty motherboard first if you know anything about the insides of a computer try unplugging the HDD the ram and the disk drives and if you have a floppy disc drive unplug that as well. basiclyunplug everything exept screen power supply keyboard and CPU if the problem carrys on it looks like youll need a new motherboard
Well, these kind of problems are very tricky to diagnose. You said that you've tried replacing your RAM, HDD and also the Power Supply. If you're using multiple RAM modules for dual channel support, remove one of the modules and try to run the system with only one module in the slots. If it still doesn't work, try to switch the RAM module to another slot. Do the same with the second RAM module.
It can also happen if the IDE/SATA cables are faulty/worn out. Inspect them to see if any of the pins are loose/broken.
Another way to diagnose problems with HDDs is 1. Disconnect your Hard Drives completely, 2. Boot your computer with a Linux/XP live CD using your CD/DVD-ROM drive. 3. If it runs perfectly, then you can assume that the problem might be with the HDD or the SATA/IDE cables. Let me know the results after you troubleshoot.
Many motherboards take two temps. Motherboard temp and CPU temp. CPU temp is the most common problem. Check there first. You might need a faster fan or a larger heat sink. Also make sure the pc isn't enclosed in anything. It needs to have air moving around it on both main sides, the front and back.
the portion between CPU and CPU sink must be clean, to work well for CPU cooling. So remove the fan gently and clean the surface of sink which touches on the CPU, also clean the CPU surface which touches on the sink.
hmm regarding connection if you can post a picture of your board i will mark on it where to make connection.
CPU usage generally depends upon what application(s) you are running. There are some apps that barely utilize the cpu, and there are others that are resource hogs that peg the CPU near 100%.
CPU temperature will also vary, depending on the load, and numerous other factors. For example, the ambient temp will affect the CPU temp - when it's cool in the room, the CPU temp will not be as high as if the room temp is warm/hot. Other factors include the type of HSF, the number of fans in the system, and the case itself, as some are better at dissipating heat than others.
So, to give you a better idea of what temp is normal for your setup we'd need much more info about the system. But for reference, 40 celcius is a pretty good CPU temp, particularly if that is under load.
