Cooling with Corsair H110 in a Antec LanBoy case...Four 120mm fans blowing directly
on the Mother board...with an Antec "spot fan" on the VRMs on high speed...also have
on the rear of the case a 120mm fan set as exhaust.
Under Prime95 stress test....My TEMP3 has gone to 67C...then two cores shut down to almost zero.
The other temps are at or under 40C. I have looked here on the forum and folks indicate that TEMP3
is the Northbridge? Should I be concerned with this? My voltage to the CPU is 1.445
I suppose I'm just looking for some reassurance or a solution to the higher than expected "Northbridge" temp.
Voltage to the CPU will have no affect on the north bridge. Gigabyte tested the NB on these boards to 80 or 85c.. memory fails me at the moment.
Don't confuse your North Bridge with your CPU-NB..
I personally don't think your north bridge is causing your 2 core's to fail, I would look else where.
