max safe x58 NB temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, my Mobo has a passive heatsink on the NB and currently we are going through a heat wave, so I was curious what the maximum NB temps were. I'm sure mine gets up to 70C.

Does anyone know? I can't really find a straightforward answer on google. thanks.

That's normal, NB's always run hot. It's actually a pretty good temp. One guy's X58 went up to 90c in another forum, that's where I would start to worry. But not 70c.

Yea, 70 is fine. Mine was getting above 90 before I put a fan on it.
