mobo temps to high?
I've been Oc'ing my cpu for the past few days and it seems to be stable @3.9ghz/55C max load/1.552v .I'm fine with that but my motherboard hits 60C is this dangerous? I realise the mobo isnt at 60c in the pic as i just ran prime for a min or so to get a screen shot
cpu-amd 945 3ghz
case-CM storm scout(5 fans)
ram-3gb ddr3 ram
gpu-gtx 260 216
while the heatsinks are quite nice, they do need airflow. serious airflow, like a stock cpu cooler running hard pushing down on the board warm air. yes warm air, but still having some flow.
seeing that you don't use a stock cooler, the general area is somewhat starved.
so yeah it can be normal in the 60c on prime and such :)
I ordered a antec lanboy case and will have many fans blowing directly on the mobo sinks,should help alot(i hope).
im not convinced it will be a huge improvement :)
anyway those temps are not the end of the worlde. you can have a fan at a certain angle blowing down on it, takes 5 minutes and some zipties :)
I'm a bit iffy on those temperature sensors for components other than the CPU. Touch the heatsink and see if it feels like 58*C
