Southbridge question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
okey here is my question. i have asrock k10n78, and southbridge is runing very hot, 75C (167F). i have on it sheatsink that was on matherboard. now i'm thinking to buy termal paste and new heatsink, and maybe new cooler (small one) to install. temps in my house are above 25C (76F) but nothing else is runing hot (above 35C (95F)). what do you think how much my temps can go down?
if you have any sugestions, please, i'm open to listen

SB's tend to run hot, but not that hot. I'd get a cheap replacement cooler for it

You haven't listed which case you're running all this in. I know it could be as simple as not enough air flow through the case. You may need to increase the flow through the case with more powerful fans and may want to add an internal fan to blow directly onto the SB HS and maybe the NB and Ram as well. By using an old 80-120mm fan you could attach it onto the backside of one of the drive bays with either a bracket or even zip ties. You'll be amazed how much this can help.
