I put a little fan but it is not a new. It keeps temp now 81C and 82C. I just want to learn WHAT IS THE NORMAL TEMP for mobos??? Last nite I jumped to XP SP3 and I tried the same things and til now I just had once pc locked when I tried to start Everest software thats it. I ordered a new Akasa chipset fan hope it will keep it less and less. Do you have any idea like an other hardware problem can cause this lock and reseting?
Thank you again...
I "chatted" with tech support at gigabyte and said that temp was normal. Now I doubt that. But I will say that this thing will be going back before the warranty is up. It's run well so far. The northbridge is very warm to the touch but I have a lot of air moving through the case.
So far, so good. If I can fit ThermalTake's northbridge cooler on the board, I'll probably install that on it.
