EVGA E759 - High Northbridge Temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a EVGA E759 motherboard and it came with a waterblock, but seeing as I don't have a water cooling loop, I placed the air heatsinks back on.

My question for any other EVGA E759/E760 owners or anybody else who can help would be if these temps seem reasonable or if I should reseat the heatsinks?

I have an Ambient temperature of 28C.

Here is my setup, I have the fans blowing air towards the top of the case.

I have the E760, same problems with the VREGs being hot(around the same temps). On my board its actually a separate heatsink to the big tower of a thing that the northbridge and southbridge(which is the same as you), as far as I know reseating makes no difference(I have a waterblock for mine, so I've switched them out a few times and I haven't noticed a difference), that's the temperature they sit at.

I'm assuming you are wondering if it does any damage? Well, I'm not sure. Hopefully EVGA took this into account when making the board, and I've heard nothing about issues with them so hopefully its designed to get that hot thumb.gif
