Picked This Board Up On Launch Day From Scan.co.uk
Have To Say Its A Great Board, Have Posted Some Pics!
But The NB/SB Issue Is Bugging Me A Little.
I Have upped the volatage on Nb/SB to cope With The OC That I Have Done On My 955, NB Temp Idle:45 D/Celsius.
SB Temp Idle:41 D/Celcius.
Is That OK?

One Thing I was Gonna Ask, If I remove the NB/SB Heatsink, and clean them up, and apply OCZ Freeze, do I need to use a thermal pad also???

Thanks In Advance!

Cool,Thanks. Not gonna do it till the weekend,. But I am gonna put the BIOS back to stock, and post my NB/SB Temps, Any Advice for Idle/Load temps on a 955?
post #685 of 13131
Ok!.

Everything at stock, 955BE at 3.2, BIOS values all reset. (Idle) NB Temp 42 Celcius
(Idle) SB Temp 39 Celcius
Motherboard Temp 31 Celcius (PC Probe II)

Still seems a bit High?

Your NB/SB temps are fine,chipsets by there very nature will get hot,Asus state anything up to 60c is within tolerance and safe.So all those users worried about NB temps rest easy.

Hello Sir/Madam

Quote:
Normal operating temps for the chipset is between 45c at idle and 55c under load. As long as you do not get hotter than 65c you are fine.
