Intel G41 Thermal limits?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my server with an ASUS P5G41T-M, Q6600 and an 8GB kit of G.Skill DDR3-1333. The system is running great although I'm a bit concerned with the NorthBridge temp.

In AIDA64 it's running at an avg. of 73c. According to this Intel pdf it's within spec but I'm still a bit uneasy about it.



So should I worry about it or not?

Currently my G41 is running @ around 36°C with firefox & itunes open, but this is in a very well ventilated case. What case are you using for it and how's the ventilation in it? TBH although it's within thermal limits for the chip, I personally wouldn't let it run that hot 24/7. It's okay to run it that hot, but it's just not preferable IMO.

That temp is well below max., Do you have your memory at ddr1333? I can,t get my corsair 1333 to run faster than ddr 1168. that,s a 10% overclock with my E7200.
