Rampage III Extreme IOH Overheating - Page 7

post #61 of 62
Hi,

I recently had a similar problem with my northbridge where it would hit 100C and shut down my comp. I replaced the dried up old tim but i also replaced the yellow heat pad on the southbridge with tim as well. My buddy thinks this will kill my computer. Do i have anything to worry about?

Thanks.

I used TIM on both the IOH and the ICH of my RIIIE, both ith the stock heatsink and now with the waterblock. It works like a champ.

Just be sure not to tighten too much the screws, especially the ones over the IOH. You might crack the chip, rendering the mobo useless. Some pressure is recommended though.
