Default High Case Ambient Temps....?

Hey guys, small issue,
I'm using a CM690 and I just noticed a spike in my Motherboard temps (re: Everest Ultimate sensor reading) and all temps are at idle


The "Motherboard" reading, (Northbridge?)
has jumped the past few days from 24-25C to as you can see, 34C and as high as 37C....

I'm running in total 8 case fans (2 are for the hsf)
- Edit- Pannel Fan is an Exhaust Fan

I've cleaned out all the fans.... re adujusted everything, cable management is as good as i can get it.. I just dont get why its so bloddy high?

I did just add an EVGA 9800GTX.... would this create that high of a temp increase, even with the gpu temps at 45 at idle?

Any ideas?

34C really isn't high at all so not sure what your really complaining for...

And the Motherboard sensor is not the Northbridge as some may think. It's more of a general case temperature sensor. Usually this sensor is underneath PCI(e) slots thus it picks up all the heat from the video card and what not. I think the chips are usually labeled "Winbond" but I can't remember for sure.

so its the northbridge that got hot right? i guess the 9800GTX is very powerful, therefore increasing loads of the northbridge. Cuz northbridge handles communications netween cpu, ram, vid cards...
just my guess here

While I do agree that 34c isnt that high at all, the jump from 24-25c to 34c is what has me concerned...
Room temp has jumped a bit, so it could account for maybe a degree or two of change... but I doubt that it would result in a 10c shift... you know...

i'm starting to wonder if I would benifit from on of those slot fans... like a exhause blower or something to place under the 9800gtx....

Why are your PSU and GFX fans not marked on the image?

BTW, noticed you're running a beta :) You might want to update to the latest version which is 4.50. Also, looking at your temperature readings everything is fine you are well within range, and have nothing to worry about - keep your motherboard <50C and HDDs <55C and you have nothing to worry about - Are you temps stable ? If your motherbaord temps keep climbing, say past 40's, then you might want to check your fans, your airflow, cable obstruction, etc. I've run case temps much higher than this for years - don't worry about it, as long as your component temps are fine, which they are.

I agree those temps are fine. If you have just added the 9800GTX (from??) this will increase temps by potentially increasing the load to the NB (increasing heat here) and have a differing thermal design from previous card and thus generate more case heat overall. 34C is wonderful and not a concern imho.

Argh,
Hows this for Karma.... I tell my younger brother about the problem... he goes and gets a little plastered, butchers holes in the 690 pannel to "help with cooling" at 4am the other morning.

He drilled like 50 holes in the freakin pannel... so with the pannel off, I'm gettin better temps lol, obviously

So... he's gonna give me 50 bucks (the cost of a new pannel shipped from the states) towards getting the Tagan Black Pearl or a TJ07....
I'm kinda leaning towards the Black Pearl, cause its cheaper
