Crosshair IV Formula North/Southbridge Temps
While playing a round of Battlefield 3 yesterday my PC Probe alarm went off for high Southbridge Temperature. It was at 56 C and the Northbridge was registering 65 C. Is this going to cause issues with MB reliability. All case fans on my coolermaster Storm Sniper were at fulll speed. I have a 200mm side fan. I am not overclocking my system and am running two MSI 6970 Lightning cards in crossfire.

Either add a 120mm on the side panel, or hang one inside your case blowing right on the chipset heatsinks.
