Do video cards utilize Northbridge

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Or do they just block airflow and heat them up a bit more.

My northbridge tops out at 34c is this too high? It was 32 before I installed this 570

Not too high, definitely You're safe, 30-40C is very good temp for any chip. GPUs not only block airflow, they emmit heat, no wonder temps go up I had to replace my CPU cooler after I got my HD4870. From 40 tops it got to 60 with no settings changed.

With AMD still having 3-chip design as opposed to intel 1156 socket only being 2-chip design, yes in your MB the GPU utilizes NB for PCI-E connectivity between the GPU and CPU.

But that is not utilization per se, it just acts as a conduit. Whats increasing your temps is the heat that the 570 emmits.

Data goes thru the northbridge to get to the video cards, and vice versa.

So yes, the GPU utilizes the northbridge.

hope that is somewhat helpful.

not a bad sensor, just a buggy one, they all read like that for some reason on the MSI board you and i are using.

Had to put a Scythe Mini Kaze fan on my NB since on my board since it inherently runs hot.

Actually, the Northbridge controls the I/O of the GPU (Amongst others...).

Well IMHO the comm to the PCI-e slot really does go through the NB, but it doesn't Control it, cause there's nothing to control. Just the data comes and goes in both directions and that's it
