ASUS P8Z68 V/Gen3 Northbridge heatsink hot!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I touched the northbridge's heatsink and its hot. i can touch it but not for so long. I have Intel Rapid Storage Technology installed.
but my hard drives are not in Raid.
where can I look for the Northbridge temp in HWinfo64?
Northbridge is the one near the sata ports right?
PCH temp is 53C in HWInfo64.

thanks for clarifying.
Southbridge and Northbridge is gone and integrated on the cpu. Like the memory controller and graphics core. Am i right?
Does HWinfo64 displays the right PCH temps? and do you know if my 53C is safe for like 14-16hrs a day usage?
