Hey I bought this mother board about 2 months ago and the north bridge idles at 80C and under load is 80C. I was wondering can this damage the chipset? And is it even accurate? I doesn't ever change from 80C under load or not. Also the south bridge is at 70C under load 60C while idle. My computer is running fine and isn't locking up or anything but I was just worried it would eventually get damaged.
Hmm,the highest temp on my GA-MA790FX-UD5P is my gpu at 117f or 40 something c,I have taken the name plate covers off of both the north and south bridges so the [hot] air from the chips can exit the system faster..
