MCP temps are high

I'm using nvidia system monitor

GPU at 52C idle (280GTX)
CPU at 42C idle (q9450)

motherboard (EVGA 780i)
MCP at 83C idle
System 35C idle

I haven't insatlled this fan yet...I can't remember what it came with...is it for the motherboard? I'm guessing it's for the SPP

Besides MPC, are there any other parts that run too hot? is 50C normal for the 280GTX?

Any help would be appreciated!

More about temps high
  1. Have you overclocked?
  2. 50c will not hurt your card.

    Yes, that fan goes on the north bridge.(right under the cpu). I have no clue why it is not shipped on the chipset heatsink to begin with.

    Should look something like this when installed if its a 780i board
  3. Thanks!
    No, I haven't overclocked
  4. i'm also using the nvidia system monitor with my nvidia geforce 7300 gs. it says the mcp temp is 235C !!

    Does that mean I need a new video card? What can I do about this? My computer keeps "randomly rebooting" ..... all the time.... is this causing it? Help?

    we can do a barbecue.
  6. Whoa, im idleing at 77C but under load it jumps to the 90C's. this isnt normal, i doubt it should be getting any hotter than about the high 50's...its litterally only just started to happen and i have no clue why. MCP temp is the south bridge temp, so if anyone knows where the sensor is located. some help would be appreciated

  7. I have a MSI motherboard (MS-7260) and mine was running at 110C. I threw a fan on it and it dropped to 93C. I looked through the documentation that came with the motherboard and found no baselines to suggest a good average temp. Anyone have any ideas?
