I would suggest you download RealTemp and then compare your temperatures to core temp under idle and full load. m 0 l xAperturex January 2, 2010 4:04:03 AM I am talking about "System Temp" not cpu temp m 0 l Related resources 6870 high GPU temps (50-60c idle, 80c gaming).

As far as I'm concerned the term System is often misused thus causing confusion. Well I don't have that make of board but on my DFI's when the system temp reads too high it means I have to do a better job of cooling the NB. It's possible you're right about the sensor or perhaps it's a configuration issue with the monitoring software. On the other hand I'd probably find a fan that I could aim at the NB and see if that temp dropped down suddenly just to make sure. I'd venture that if your chipset was that hot you'd have stability issues. Do you? m 0 l xAperturex January 2, 2010 5:52:09 AM nope not yet ive ran prime 95 for a couple hours and so far its ok. the addition of 3 120mm fans should help if anything but thanks for the reply oo i forgot also the 790i has a NB heatsink and fans sooo m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
