This one isnt mine, but it is almost identical accept for the PCIe color and the heatskin colors. but on this board the thing i tuched would be the biggest heatskin you can see there.

i think thats your chipset... but i may be mistaken and it could be the onboard graphix.... but either way i think you should try and cool it a little better... try and find a larger heasink....

thats up to you... like i said if its running with no problems and you have been running it 24/7 for a long time... then dont worry to much about it, just sometime in the future it might be nice to cool it a little better

Yeah, if you've been running this thing 24/7 and haven't had any problems; then it's high temperature probably isn't a problem.

Hi Pabsil1,

I'm going to have to disagree with your statement that "nothing should be running so hot as to burn you". During tests I conducted with folks with regard to thermal burns for my company, two things became apparent. 1) Most people will feel pain or immediate discomfort at the 110 to 120degF range of heat. This equates to about 43 to 49degC. That's why it's recommended by manufacturers of hot water heaters to keep the temp below 100degF. 2) Skin reddening and blisters will occur with as little as 1/2 sec contact with a hot surface. This is why the company has chosen to insulate all pipelines, vessels, containers, etc that are in excess of 90degF, just to be on the safe side. Welders will also tell you that mild carbon steel heated to red hot, then air cooled to normal grey coloring will burn instantly when touched...
There is definitely computer parts that will run this hot. The cpu and or heatsink, north bridge, mosfets, capacitors, gpu, etc...
If Dcstegg did touch a mosfet or capacitor an immediate burn could be produced. Why they touched it 3 times I don't know...
And as Hyrox stated, many parts are still very hot even after several minutes. Some parts will even discharge electricity long after the computers been off. Another reason you don't want to mess with power supplies or monitor parts, or even TV's.

I hope it was Ok to express my opinion, :-)
