Motherboard very high temp.

For about a week I noticed my motherboard has been running hot on the display on my case it's been showing 130-136 F (alarm temp). All the fans seem to be working, not sure what could be causing this. This screenshot is from right now, only thing running is chrome with 5 tabs open

  1. Those temps are normal. Nothing to worry about
  2. If it worries you, get some canned air and blow out any dust. If you have an intel with stock cooler, it might be dust bunnies in your cpu fan. The stuck cooler blows air down across the motherboard to cool it SLIGHTLY. AMD does too but less. This all depends on how it normally runs though. What I said only applies if it's running hotter than normal and the area its running in also is around the usual temperature.

    If you DO clean out the computer, unplug it first, and stop the fans from spinning by putting something non conductive like a small coffee straw in there to keep it from spinning. Canned air can spin the fans much faster than designed and that is bad for the bearings.

    Dust bunnies really like power supplies too because of all the nooks and crannies and hard to clean spots.
  3. really? the CPUTIN line seemed kinda high at 80 c 176 f.

    I just cleaned it 2 days ago and it's usually been below 100 F.
    iam using a CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES H60 120MM LIQUID COOLING

    It was mostly the "(alarm temp)" thing that worried me, I have never seen that come up. But I'm not to familiar with all the temps
    I shall keep calm if you all don't think it's that high
    I will just keep an eye on it, maybe go thru with some more air.
  4. Well if it is usually below 100, then SOMETHING is going on, I think I'd ask corsair as my first step. See if they think the pump is okay. Well, my second step actually, I'd reset my cmos first, mabye some setting got wonky (I assume you left the pump alone and didn't put new thermal compound on or mess with it when I say this.)

    yea I haven't touched the pump. I guess ill try to reset my cmos first see if it works if not I will contact corsair. Thanks for the help.

    Sure. I hope it's something easy and not the cooler or something suckish, lemme know what it turn out to be.
