Download HWMonitor and show us a screen shot of a Idle state.

Also try resetting the Bios as well.

Just a question which temperature is the NB 0,1 ,or 2?

On most Gigabyte boards, TMPIN0 is the northbridge/chipset temp and TMPIN2 is the VRM temp.

Are you running anything demanding? I mean it's the Highway between your (Memory to CPU) and (PCI to CPU). I could see Prime95 making it hot as hell.

35C is 95F which is almost 2 degrees cooler than your hand. Something is not right.

n00b question but how do i post pictures??
post #10 of 13
as stated above. download Hwmonitor and post a screen shot at idle.

The 990fx chipset is known to run warmer than most others(well I guess thats a understatement) by default. I had the same issue with my CHV. My NB temp would be in the low-mid 50's at idle. and jump intot he mid-high 60's while gaming. But it was never scorching to the touch.


I had to remove the NB heatsink, remove all the OEM thermal crud and reapply my own paste(AS5 is what I used)

read through post 5128.

Also if you don't feel confident in being able to do that, you can always add a small fan to blow on the NB/VRM heatsink or reverse your back fan as an intake(doing that should give a nice breeze over the NB heatsink and lower temps a bit, but make sure you have adequate exhaust)

But if the heatsink is that hot to the touch at idle, your preferable choice is to remove/reapply the HS along with what I stated above with the fans.
