I have the same issue, 68 celsius on idle system
Has anyone asked ASUS if it is ok or not

Moving cooling air over the rather inefficient heat sink appears to be a more important aspect of keeping it cool than one might normally see.

Yes, the limited surface area of the heatsink (on the Hero at any rate) plus the presence of the cosmetic applique on its top surface means that it will struggle to naturally dissipate heat without some assistance from forced air cooling.
As per post above I've already got a 40mm Noctua fan blowing down onto an SSD in the M2_3 position - and the top of the PCH HS gets a fair bit of that, with precious little effect. I'm next going to build a shroud/duct that encapuslates the airflow and forces it down under and around the heatsink - and will probably machine some slots/fins in the edge of the HS nearest the SSD to encourage airflow down there too.
@luntik, as per other posts, we've seen comments here from Asus-affiliated members that this sort of temperature is not problematic, but I'm a perfectionist so if I can improve it, I will. Don't feel as though you have to though.

Hi What thickness of thermal pad did you use ?
