Northbridge running too hot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
He everybody,

Thanks to a couple of you guys out here i got my Q6600 up to 3.5Ghz today. The only thing whats concerning me right now are my north- and southbridge temps. The northbridge gets 1.62v now and is running idle at 63c. The Southbridge gets 1.06v and runs about 50c. Is this something to worry about, or are these acceptable temps for this board?

Greetz.

Bring that voltage down to 1.55 or so and you should be good for long term use.
