After running prime 95 for 15 minutes TMPIN2 reached 65 which is a little hot but probably nothing to worry about, if I boot up from standby it will be around 10 degrees cooler for some reason

I don't know about you guys but i was poking around in my case today, with the computer running.

Touched the northbridge it burned my finger. Vrm's are hot, but didn't burn me.

Thinking about ordering one of those. Mean while i just rigged up a old cpu fan i had laying around on top the heatsink. Temps have droped by 10c. Still hot though, at least it doesn't burn me on contact now.

my poor finger.

I'd say that the 10 degrees cooler thing after booting from standby would be normal. But it does show a sign that the heat transfer isn't totally efficient. Lingering heat in the heatsink is probably keeping your chip at __C idle as opposed to 10C cooler.

I am having problems with my keyboard and mouse not working right after boot. I am using a ps/2 mouse and keyboard connected to a ps/2 - usb splitter cable. This only happens intermittently and I can get every thing to work by just unplugging the usb from the back panel and reinserting. I remember back around the F2-F3 days that some people were having trouble with usb keyboards and mice working but I thought that the newer bios revs fixed that problem. Is anyone else having this issue?

Even if I put it on standby for 50 seconds there is a 10 degrees difference so i dont think that is the case seems to be some kind of sensor bug

It's a sensor bug. Don't trust the sensor after a system standby.

For me, the Tmpin2 suddenly becomes locked to the core temprature (As in, they increase and decrease at the exact same rate and never become more then 1 degree apart.)

Northbridges aren't CPUs. They can and do run hot. I know people like to say "If it burns it's too hot" but there are tons of people who have run northbridges hot for years with no problem.

That said, if you feel like cooling it by all means buy that. The Northbridge seems to be tmpin2, and theirfor the hottest part of the motherboard.

Hello folks, just wondering if anyone had jumped on the Solid State Drive bandwagon using this board yet.

I honestly have no idea what i'm doing and my SSD is going to be here tomorrow

No but I'm thinking about it, so thanks for taking that bullet for the rest of us!
