I just received my Crosshair IV on Friday, June 4 2010, for my new system I have been anxious to build. (Finally upgrading from my trusty old Asus A8n-SLI Premium)

I spent Saturday building my new beast after all of the components finally came in. I ordered from Newegg about a week ago and had noticed a few people had mentioned NB temperature issues. Surely they must be fixed by now right? Wrong.

Start-up time! Windows 7 here I come. Diagnostic LED's, passed! Voltage Led's, great. Upon initial boot up, I started navigating around bios and immediately brought up the hardware monitor to see where I stood. Everything is looking good, CPU ect, and then I see it.

North Bridge temp = 70*C and rising. I watched as literally within 30 seconds from first boot-up, temperatures climbed... 75C....80C (Red Zone)....84C+.... All while idling in bios.

I shut it down before the motherboard could shut itself off. I booted two more times later in the night, netting the same result. Couldn't even make it stable enough for OS installation or Bios update. Voltage was right on the mark, and it was blatantly obvious the heat sink issue had struck me. Needless to say, I'm not very happy at the moment. (This was in a camo NZXT Evo case with all 120mm fans replaced with 90cfm units and impeccable wire management by the way.)

Already filed for an RMA and am most likely going to overnight it tomorrow to expedite the process, but the fact that the replacement might have the exact same problem is really bugging me. A close friend of mine just purchased an Asus 89gx Pro with a similar setup and his board has been perfect. Its such a shame because the features, design, OC options, and everything else is just perfect on the Crosshair. I can't help but feel that if I would have been cheap and bought the other board, I would actually have a functional system right now. :-(

I have always used Asus and they have never let me down before now.

Praying my 2nd board won't be a dud.

My Build
AMD 1090T x6 Thuban
Crosshair IV Formula
4GB crucial ballistix tracer 1600
Camo Tempest Evo with CM 120mm fans
Antec NeoPower 650w PS
BFG 9800 GTX+ OC (I know, need to upgrade)
640G WD Black Hd
Does sound like the nb was not making good contact, that rally sucks to get a new mobo and have this happen. It looks like I was one of the lucky ones with mine. Seeing how you are already in the process of a rma and this problem is going to be fresh in your mind you should probaly just go ahead and pull the heatsink and make sure its making contact before anything else.
If its not then do the file fix. As other are saying you could probaly use the thermal already on it but if you going through the trouble of all this you really should go ahead and replace with some good tim to be sure. Good luck and post back here with your results

Has ASUS addressed the NB temperature issue? If so, are they allowing consumers to re-seat the heatsink without voiding warranty? Or must you RMA it.

I am considering of re-purchasing this board (I had to sell it a month ago for money to get my mom a laptop). But I don't want to fool around with the NB and void the warranty if it will.

Shows the same temps, it could have something to do with the fact I have my 5770 in the second 16X slot, it covers part of the SB and the card does put off some heat.

Did the Northbridge fix and I am really happy with the results. Although I broke one of the stand offs(I was stupid and overtightened it, nothing some glue can't fix). Ambient temperature is 24 Celsius and the NB temp is 42 Celsius and SB is 37 Celsius. It's going to go down even farther once I point an 3K Ultra Kaze at it. Pretty good from 57 Celsius last week.

Glad to hear it works. I'm buying mine in a couple days and I'm fixing it before I even find out if it has the NB issue.......I can't wait to get off this socket 939 machine.

Of course, but be careful because it it electrically conductive. So don't drip any.
