is 38 degrees too hot for mobo chipset?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
A couple of months ago I built my first watercooled rig. Basically an intel core I7 2600k and EVGA GTX 590 - both watercooled with one XSPC 360 rad, Laing D5 pump, Xilence fans (for now - I'm on the gentle typhoon buy) yada yada yada.

I decided to add another res - an XSPC 240 which I expected to lower my stress temps. I added it to teh same loop. It has lowered the temps, by a few degrees - but - I'm beginning to notice that my mobo chipset is getting hot.

Playing F12010 (which stresses the GPU like you wouldn't believe at highest settings) I'm seeing my mobo chipset top out at around 40 degrees C after a couple of hours. Almost too hot to touch. It is hot here today and I reckon ambient temp is high 20's.

Am I worrying over nothing. is 40 degrees nothing to worry about under stress? I should add, I have the Corsair 800d and the exhaust at the back of the case isn't working right now. It's a whole dual fan controller wire and one fan is a bit iffy and I can't be bothered to change it all again yet type thing [breathes out] so airflow into the case is, well, non existent.

CPU tops out under stress at 50 degrees C and teh highest I have seen the GPU (both cores) is 42 degrees C. So it's really only the mobo I'm concerned about.

Thoughts? Feel free to call me a fool.

Well mine gets to like 50c. I hope that helps.
(We do have much different hardware though.)

Wow 38 degrees is great! Mine hits 80 which is apparently normal for my board.

40C is generally nothing to worry about.

It does. I think my problem is that, as I started with temps that were so low, I kinda expect to be able to get them lower. Maybe I'm just real lucky and have hit the ground running first time.

Thanks for all the quick replies.

I was wondering about a waterblock - but none exist yet for the Asus P8P67 deluxe that I want and I am planning on moving to the EVGA P67 FTW in a couple of months or so because, basically, the P8P67 deluxe is a bit rubbish. Took me two days of trawling the web to fix the 'double post' issue. I digress...

...I also forgot to add that I have the CPU OC'd from 3.3ghz to arund 4.5ghz which will add to the temps.

Feeling better now:-) Knew I could rely on teh combined knowledge of overclock.net

38c is fantastic...I get that with a water block.

Before the block, my NB temps would hover around 65c.

My 780i hit 74-77*C all the time for 3 years so 38*C is really cool IMO. Never checked the temperature of the P67 though.
