I know what you're talking about. The first time I saw the temps in BIOS I near bricked myself. But after reading around the internets I realized that the northbridge will always run hot. It's just the way it is.

The only problem you will have is when temps start going over 100C.

Since software temperature monitoring is vague at best I'm not sure which temp is even which. But in Hardware Monitor it's showing SYSTIN as 32C, CPUTIN as 28C, and AUXTIN as 55, all while on idle. All of those temperatures are well below the max operating temps and most of the time those people that use waterblocks on their motherboards are more or less doing it for looks, it's not always necessary.

Do you have a link?

Anyway - if I had to trust any source, it would be this one. If anything, you can always use that search bar on the top-right on the name of a cooler and see if anyone else has said anything about it.


Research is key! Try to search for characteristics that are shared; cpu chip (of course), TIM, and tower case are probably most important in terms of thermal performance.
Newegg customer ratings are abundant - because of that, I'd trust them as a first source, but I'd run back to OCN as a primary.
I've only heard that TomsHardWare is biased/paid for their reviews; I can't tell.

EDIT: Great Deal on the CM Hyper212+ here.
