I recently bought a P8Z68-V-PRO and i noticed the chipset heatsink is very hot, so hot i cannot touch it unless i want to get burned.
I have a i3 2105 cpu on it, no video card (maybe in the near future ) and i tried at first the AI Suite Auto Tuning feature but when i noticed the issue i reset it to the default settings but this didn't change anything, the chipset heatsink is still very hot.
I have two 120 fans (intake, outtake) in my case so there is enough airflow, i guess.
Is this normal behavior or do i need to send it for repair?
Thank you very much!
Thank you very much for your answer.
I'll uninstall the AI suite and check if it makes any difference.
It's much hotter that 65 C, as far as my finger tells me, I'll check with a thermometer as soon as i get my hands on one just to have some clear figures.
The mother board temperature sensor doesn't go above 40C but i don't think it has anything to do with the chipset.
