Thanks a lotAll numbers are very acceptable now.
thank you, It is summer definitely but I use air conditioning all the time, room temperature is about 25MapleGreen
I agree with h9836790, all your temps are OK . .especially if it is summer where you are.
I did open it up the other day, removed the CPU Tray, and blasted out all the dust with compressed air.howiest
This may give you some ideas
Have you ever de-dusted your lower Intake and exhaust fans ? I removed a ton of dust from the lower exhaust fan. If you do de-dust them put a pencil in between the blades first and use a long haired brush.
I have two extra USB powered fans installed for teh Northbridge chip and CPU RAM. Works.
Rivets are fine so far, my IOH Diode runs between 65 to 70 degrees (it's pretty warm here these days).Howiest
Have you checked your lower exhaust fan / that's the worst one for gathering dust.
Also, are your Northbridge heatsink spring rivets OK ?
I am noticing something I see on my rig, a rather large jump between the Northbridge and it's heat sink... and my delta is about 40º. I set up auto fan control with Macs Fan Control, it's summer here and no a/c, so it runs from 73º to 78º depending on ambient and where I am running a game or not (without some extra spin, would be 80º-82º). Within known tolerances, BUT everyone seems to think I have an issue with my heat sink, but it was JUST serviced with a fresh thermal pad and no issues with the hold down rivets. Theoretically if I replace the pad with paste, I may gain about 2º, I might try it for the hell of it.Rivets are fine so far, my IOH Diode runs between 65 to 70 degrees (it's pretty warm here these days).
I bought some of those replacement rivets from China for that eventual day.
See my post #14 for my solution for a broken northbridge rivet.I'd be thrilled if I got one of the trays to run it's Northbridge in the 60s even lacking fan spin.
Just came across this thread and started from beginning.
I have 75ºC all the way, which to my knowlege is exactly what most users experience and is widely considered normal.prior to installing the SATA powered fan my Northbridge was running at 75° ~ 85°C / 167° ~ 185° F in Summer.
Yes! ...while you put considerably more effort to the topic with even (IMHO) destroying the beauty of the case itself. Without any real need to do so, as nortbridge-chips are known hotrunners and should easily take temps around 70ºC for extended periods of time without any danger of dammage.My NB is currently running considerably cooler than yours. 😇
