I just built a budget computer for a relative with the GA-A75M-UD2H motherboard and A8-3850. The computer seems to run fine but when I looked at temps all were normal except for TMPIN1 which was 85C at idle! Under BF3 load it went to 102C.

The CPU is cool but the chipset was hot to the touch. I've read reviews that say it runs hot but this seems excessive. Is this ok or should I return this board and get a different one?

Thanks

Improve case cooling. Good airflow will drop that down a bunch.

UPDATE: Thinking it was a bad board I took it back and got a replacement GA-A75M-UD2H. The 2nd board shows the same high temp issue on SIW and and HMonitor, but in BIOS I don't see those high readings. I'll assume it's a "feature" of the a75 chipset.

I will get an additional side fan but other than that I'm not sure what else to do. The temps were taken in an open case (sides were off).
