I have replaced the tim on the NB SB but left the thermal pads on the mosfets. Worked great.

I also have wondered that question.

If any one is thinking of doing this then let me speak a word of wisdom on the subject...

I Have never taken the heat sinks off the mobo but in theory this is possible and wish to warn all users who wish to try to replace the factory TIM.

Be very carefull when you remove the heat sinks, for it is possible that you can bend them and then when you go to reapply they will not properly seat and creat a void for excessive heat to build up.

Gyro, more than likely this is the temperature of your chipset (NB). Does your BIOS display a similar reading?

Good luck

no there is no such reading in the bios.

here is some info from pc stats review found here:http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.c...id=1974&page=2

"nVIDIA breaks the nForce 590 SLI down into two chipsets, the C51XE Northbridge which is built on TSMC's 90 nanometer manufacturing, and the MCP55PXE which is manufactured on TSMC's 140 nanometer manufacturing.

The nVIDIA nForce 590 SLI chipsets have a total of 46 PCI Express lanes available, and these are divided into 9 links. The C51XE SPP Northbridge supplies one PCI Express x16 link while it's the MCP55PXE that has the rest of the PCI Express lanes. The MCP55PXE also supports one PCI Express x16 link, which means users get full videocard bandwidth when running two nVIDIA videocards in SLI.

The MCP Southbridge has a PCI Express x8 link and six PCI Express x1 links, depending on what the motherboard vendor decides to implement. Whichever way you slice it, there's plenty of high bandwidth PCI Express lanes to go around!

The nVidia MCP55PXE Southbridge is definitely the workhorse of the two, and it boasts a whole host of other features as well. The Southbridge handles up to 5 bus mastering PCI slots, but again it's up to the motherboard manufacturer to decide how many PCI slots to equip on a motherboard. There is a direct link to the Southbridge for two Gigabit Ethernet connections, and these will include nVIDIA's DualNet technology of course."

a good summary,but it could be either, I just don't know

How about this one www.gpureview.com very up to date video card comparison with useful info such as max wattage needed, rops, chip name, shaders, everything you need to know in one place. And it also compares prices.

Also www.pricewatch.com altho they nolonger have newegg prices it is a good place to look around and compare prices.

Gyro, thanks for posting the above link and information. That was quite helpful. It's possible the 50C could be the C51XE only because 90nm process sounds more like 50C at full load. Does the south bridge (MCP55PXE) feel warm/hot when you touch it?

Two things to consider if you are a little worried. Check and make sure the airflow in your case is sufficient and also make sure there aren't any dead pockets of air. Warm air will sit in one spot which eventually leads to the increase temperature of the surrounding components.

Hope that helps

In my case the second vid card was sitting just over it and creating even more heat. It got hot in like a matter of seconds. Like 127c and failz... OCCT failz and system froze up, blue screened or just restart on it's own.
