Hi, just modded one of the DFI mobos that i have to SLi and was wondering what northbridge temps you guys get?

mines hovering around 52 degs at idle? sounds rather hot to me...

has standard crappy cooler on it.

The DFI NB temps on the 939 boards where notoriously high.

And the stock fan noisy. I replaced mine with a ThermalRight silent heat pipe jobbie that worked a treat. If, it was a while back, I can track down the name of it I`ll let you know.

Oh, the DFI thermal goop under the Heat Sink was crap and poorly applied. Maybe worth it to swap it out for some Artic Silver...if you feel like removing your MB from your case....
