    I've lodged an RMA with the store I purchased the motherboard from.

    They're now contacting the distributors to see if my motherboard's temperatures are out of range.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys.

    Well too late now but:

    CPU: around 30 C, 40-45 C under very heavy load

    Motherboard 30 - 35 C again under heavy load...

    BTW, here's an image for reference:


    1066 MHz FSB (quad pumped)
    800 MHz Memory (double pumped)
    Reference voltage (Auto set in BIOS)
    BIOS version F6b
    IDLE system, aswell (which is most concerning)

    I was wondering what Janus thinks of this...

    BTW, ignore the fan RPM warnings. I've got my case fans hooked to my PSU.

    Wesker-
    Here's a sshot of ETune on my rig...BTW, the cpu temps are reading 14c cooler than actual, so ETune is not even close on that account. How far off with the system temp, I have no idea. Just updated to bios F7, and the reading for my system temp went up (at idle) by 3c.

    The temps I get in EasyTune are the same as the BIOS, so I imagine they're correct.

    I updated the BIOS to F7 this morning. Northbridge heatsink is still very hot to touch (~50*C+ IMO).

    You know, I don't want to buy a crazy ASUS kitchensink motherboard, as I've been using Gigabyte motherboards for quite some time now. I know their BIOS' well and I know what to expect from them. But if I can't get this issue resolved, I may very well have to go to ASUS.

    How can I even run a 1600MHz FSB processor when the northbridge is overheating with a 1066MHz FSB idle processor?
