It works on the same principal as your cpu cooler, heat is transfered by heat pipe to fins.Stick a fan on it and it will dissipate the heat much better.
Think of how hot your cpu would get if you did not have fan on your True,same thing here.
If you don't have that little fan try mounting a fan so it blows at the mb.
Maybe take the side panel off and run prime and point a fan at different parts of the mb and see if the tmpin2 temps fall any.
The 965 BE is running ok on my M2N32 Sli Deluxe. No probs there. Sisoft sandra benchmarks all run with no probs. but there are some issues. I wonder if I'm the only one:
* System boot feels like it takes longer than usual.
* once every couple of boots, it gives me bsod's ( irq-less-then-equal ). I
have to reset the pc and then it gives me two possibilities to start: normal
When I choose recovery, it says it is loading files. But then, nothing happens anymore. If I choose normal boot, it bootes like nothing has happened.
Anyone familiar with these issues?
The unit is one piece so you would have to find a way to cool the vrm,s too.
Much more trouble than it's worth.
A side will help get air to you vid card too.
It's just like any other heat sink,it cools better with air flow.
I'd leave nb/sb volts on auto.
