  1. What makes you think it is too hot? If it is not crashing then there are no problems.

  5. i had same problem with msi pro-e
    when i asked pc technician they said its normal and msi boards get hot
    well not good enough for me i decided to make a test.
    basiclly i got cheap case and the graphic card set on 1st pci i lowered it to the 3rd pci which made more space for the northen bridge get air. moreover i took old cpu fan and wired on the Heat sink of the northen bridge temp decreased from 86c to 46c.
    now i am looking for a bit quiter fan that can sit on the hub normally
  6. Hi, i have an MSi eclipse SLI and i had a problem with the nothbridge temperature. It was running at 75'C. which is too hot contry to waht someone else on this post said.

    My solution. I removed the heatsink, scraped off all the ***, put some acrilic silver paste on it, now it runs at 55'C. I also directled the airflow from a 120mm fan onto the northbride heatsink and that cools it to 45'C. Hope this helps.
