Both CPU's have the same amount of cache..and HT speed..yet the BE has a higher bandwidth/sec. The cache must be of a lower latency..as well as the integrated mem controller.
No offense but....

English?

the BE 5000 does more data throughput...thus it runs hotter at the same voltage/speed, than the 3800X2.

Frankly, I don't get the temp thing with the Brisys!
5000+ B uses in two different MBs.
Crosshair, temps were typical and on the money.
Biostar TA770, the BIOS and Windows temps were about 10c below the Crosshair.

Same CPU different MBs, so how can it be a CPU issue?

Back to your MB..
If its OCing well, stick with it, if not..
AMD will be releasing a new South Bridge chip for the AM2+
nForce should be releasing there offering soon to.
If either works out well, perhaps up grade then. but it will be an ATX format. This will not only up to a true AM2+, but give you the option to up to a Quad Core down the road too.
