at what temp should I be concerned

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My motherboard is hitting the 48-51 mark.
I have never paid attention to the mobo temps before, so I am not sure if this is normal.

That is not to bad. If you are concerned you can lower the northbridge voltage or you can try directing a fan on it. It is only around 70c then it starts to become really dangerous.

The unsafe temp, is the temp that the cpu will no longer boot. voltage will kill a cpu, but temps wont.

As you increase voltage, you decrease the maximum safe temperature. For example...my Q6600 would probably be fine at near 100C at stock volts and stock speeds, but with 1.5v...that's not safe at all.

So 1.5v would be good in the 70's then

I wouldn't want to see anything over 70C at that voltage. Some people have different views on what's safe and what's not.

I personally like to stay below 65C on everything, especially my north bridge and CPU.
