Asus Crosshair IV - NB problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got this board. Powered it up and the NB is 65°c idle and rising. Shouldn't this be lower? This is the only real "problem" people are reporting on Newegg.

Tell me OCN - what should I do or is this normal?

I think it should be around 40, well i think thats what mine is on this temperature monitor, you should try rma or a solution yourself

I actually bought it - forgot I was logged into friends account.

Anyways - Really? Isn't there a simple solution? I've red that changing screws and thermal paste would do the trick, but where am I supposed to find exactly those screws?

Also this problem first occured about 4 months ago, you would have though that Asus would have fixed it by now if they would have though this was a problem. Yet some people get NB @ under 40°c while other almost 70°c @ idle..

Changing the screws or else you can take the screws off and file them down i think, mine turned out to be one of the good ones i think, and yea dont ask asus are a bit slow to act sometimes
