Luckily not!!

Got the monitor today (23" LED LG), nice, but it wobbles, alot -_- will look into that tomorrow.
I'm typing on the computer now smile.gif

Just brought a right angled SATA cable off eBay, shall attempt to shorten it when it gets here :S

A few questions....
What radius (whatever it's called) should the bolts be to go through the hole on the motherboard? (where the screw usually goes)
And how hot should the chipset heatsink get?

That al rather depends on what one finds acceptable heatsink temp should stay under 60 degrees otherwise the proc will certainly burn.(and throttle)
You can ofcourse test is by taking a carboard box with the dimensions you're having then open up the back of that box see what the temps are but as it is only a i3 it shouldn't get that hot.
Lower 70's under load I think.

The chipset shouldn't surpass 90 degrees but it can handle high temps just fine as in 70 degrees no sweat.

I don't get you question on how and were the screws should go trough the mobo as they have to go trough on the place where the holes are hehe rolleyes.gif
Or are you talking about mounting the heatsink for the cpu the should go in straight and be tightend until perfect base contact (perfect as in as tight as possible on all corners)

Is this okay/normal?

No probs with it. It's the I/O chip temperature, quite expectable to run hot on an ITX board, since ventilation is always less than optimal. You've got good 30ºC of overhead there before I'd start to bother.

As I said before as long as it doesn't go above 90 degrees celsius it'll be fine

But running at 89 degrees all the time isn't beneficial for the CPU's lifetime thumb.gif Those temperatures are fine OP. Is that during load or idle?

Does anybody care if his cpu lifetime is 10 years instead of 20? as cpus almost never die wink.gif
It is during idle btw since it is his EFI bios screen

That's Idle, like if I reboot it after casual use and go into the BIOS. That's what shows in the BIOS
PCH is the northbridge right? It it okay for it to be like that, it is hot to the touch.

A bit of an update:

Welcome to Queensland, Australia, where big storms like to come and cut out peoples internet -_-
I'm currently in one of the area's that is I guess you could say, underattack.
I'm not sure on how the internet works in other countries but I think America mostly uses cable etc.
We however get ADSL through out phone lines, and tonight they went bye bye. Luckily we still have power smile.gif
Lets hope it comes back on soon smile.gif, till then I'll tether my 1.5GB's of Mobile Internet and hope I don't exceed.

I have shortened the SATA power cables length (I just cut off the extra bits tongue.gif).
I ran Prime95 for 2/3 hours or so with no problems (the CPU did get quite warm though, didn't feel as hot as that northbridge did though!)
I am planning to cut the aluminium tomorrow, if not I'll get it nice and clean anyway tongue.gif

I also want to get the bolts to put through the motherboard instead of screws, like this picture but with my motherboard at the bottom.

What size should they be to fit through the screw holes on the motherboard?
