Hmmm... I very much doubt your chipset runs at 158F or 70C. If it does it wont last very long. My suggestion is to get some watercooling or a nice big fan in that baby before you melt a hole to China.

Yeah it actually does because i took my motherboard back and they couldnt do anything so they called gigabyte and gigabyte actually told them it was normal for it to run that way.

It can run hot...but I highly disagree with bumping up the voltage to max.

Rule of thumb for ALL voltages on a motherboard: Adjust as necessary, in small steps.

You don't want to run it at 1.4 if it will run just fine on 1.2...(just an example)

i wanna bump it up because when i turn the comp on it resets itself 3 times EVERYTIME before it boots and i have no idea what it is because all the stability tests pass and i can leave it to benchmark for hours

If it does not boot normally.. then it is not stable, IMO

Another reason you don't want to heat or high voltage is that it can potentially cut the life of the processor/board significantly. I really suggest you invest in some better cooling options if you're running that hot.

With the rest thing - it's probably your powersupply. If you're using some cheap piece that came with your case (like me
) it's likely to have some issues.
