Hello guys,

 

I have bought an MSI 970A SLI Krait motherboard and i realized that while playing some "heavy" games the chipset northbridge temperature starts to climb from 40ºC (iddle) up to 80ºC (full load). I dont fell anything while playing but I fear that this is too much temp and the motherboard fry itself.

 

In order to avoid this i removed the sidewall panel from the case but the heatsink remains really hot while gaming. Only reduces the temperature of other components.

 

I have downloaded the monitoring software speedfan and  I realized that the chipset - TEMP1 + TEMP2  temperature increase, goes alongside with the Vcore value. The CPU / GPU are not overclocked.

 

Do you know if this temperatures are normal? Where can I find the temperature range of the AMD 970 CHIPSET?

 

On idle the CPU temp is about 18ºC, on full load for some time goes to 50ºC.

 

CPU - FX8350

MB - MSI 970A SLI KRAIT

GPU - R9 380 2GB

PSU - NOX 650W

1 SSD

1 HDD

8GB RAM CORSAIR
