My north bridge is on fire cant keep my fingers on it for more than 1 sec, its only oc'ed from 2 GHZ to 2.2 GHZ. Its a E2200. I am getting a new graphics card and dont want my motherboard destroying it, i think ima get a new one and sell this one (with a slower cpu of course).
Will it kill my other stuff when/if it goes out? Is there any way to cool it?
What feels hot to you is not always hot to a chipset. I mean i have seen many north bridges too hot to touch, but they never did die. Old passive video cards are the same as are old K7 cpu's(palomino ones where especially hot).
Is the system in any way unstable?
If you are worried as said above, Slap a fan on it, that always cooled down old passive video cards and chipsets I wanted to overclock with.
