P5W DH Deluxe mobo temp. sensor

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if the sensor is on the southbridge or the northbridge? I am looking to find ways of cooling my motherboard so that it stays a bit below 50 degrees C under load. I have an extra PCI slot cooling fan that I can put in the PCI-E x1 above my X1900XTX, which will suck air from over the northbridge heatsink, but if the sensor is over the southbridge then my only option is placing some BGA RAMsinks onto it in hopes of increasing the convection area. Do you think either option will work? Should I do both?

My answer to that is "those are removable?". Well what do you think of my solutions? Will they help?

Hey cisf0rcalvin, how did you mount the 40mm fan onto your northbridge? Do you have an image of it?

The PCI slot fan seems to have cooled my temps by 2 degrees C, as my motherboard never gets over 50 degrees C anymore, whereas I've seen it as high as 52. However, I am not so sure that it can be contributed to the slot fan, though it does seem to be blowing out warmer air. It may be sucking it from my Tuniq Tower.

Anyway, directions on installing a 40mm fan would be very much appreciated!

Thanks Kevsta, that makes me feel A LOT better, especially since my temps get nowhere near 65.

np, I used to get like 55c with my graphics cards heating up the southbridge right next to them. If you put like an 80mm fan blowing right towards the back of your video cards your mobo temp will be like 35c.

How do you take off the aluminum covers? Is there thermal grease holding it onto the actual heat sink?

i just took two long screws and put it into my fan. Then i just put it on the hs. The aluminum is really easy to take off. I think its just glue?
