Thread Starter 
Currently having a ECS h61h2-m12 Mobo...

and touched this part of the mobo accidentally and is very hot..

can I open this one and put thermal paste on it? seriously it is very hot, hotter than my CPU(i3 2100) can't even feel if it is hot..

From the pictures, that looks like the heatsink on your motherboard. It's there to dissipate heat so it will get pretty hot.

That's the southbridge. It generally is warm but does get hot sometimes.

How old is your motherboard? If its just a couple of months, i'd say leave it. My old boards SB used to get hot but its considered normal. thumb.gif

Its not going to burn your box, don't worry! If you want to cool it further, just place a fan blowing on top of it.
