NB Block?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Recently installed a new motherboard (EP45-UD3P) and checked the NB temp. Very warm, but doesn't burn my hand to the touch. Everest reports an "AUX" temp at 33°C, and I'm not sure if it's my NB or not, or if that's even toasty for a NB (last mobo had no sensor for it, and it never got as hot as this one does).

So, two questions:

1) Is a NB block a decent option, or am I just worrying about nothing with this temp?
2) If a NB block is something to consider, can my loop handle it?
2a) Which?

33c is nothing for a northbridge temp. I have an after market cooler and mine is 43 LOL. As long as you can touch the heatsink and it only feels warm i wouldnt worry About it. I got an after market cooler for my NB and SB after i touched the SB and it burned the crap outta me.


EDIT:

Get pcwizard it will give you accurate temps and list which temps are for what..

No other input? I mean if it's not that hot then it's not that hot...I've just got this itch that I want to scratch.

that board has no NB temp sensor because it does not need one. Even with the highest OC's it does not get hot enough to fail

someone here did some testing of that with a temperature probe, cant seem to find the link now though

i have the ep45-ud3p too
i have heard that it doesn't have a NB temperature sensor
people on XS have hit 600+ FSB with the stock heatsink i think

hey you cant go wrong with a NB cooler

I don't think it would affect your loop much to add a block. If you have a pretty tight loop like me though, I'd go for air cooling instead.

Also with your board looks like you'd need some MOSFET cooling if you removed the heatsink.
