    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Bill,

    I think what you are looking for is ultimately worthless and totally inaccurate. Everyone interprets temperature differently and just a small patch of dry skin on a finger can have a great insulating effect.

    I've got a temperature probe on my Northbridge off one of the Zalmans (MF2) four monitoring channels and it's placed on an outside fin and about half way down (towards the base) ie an area where you would put your finger and it measures around 50C (+/- 10%) when playing a game with a room temperature of around 22C

    Also electronic "greenhouse" temperature gauges with a Hi - Lo facility which have an internal temperature probe aswell as an external probe on about 5' of cable are very cheap and useful for quick checks. I've used mine for measuring case temperature to PSU exhaust heat. Sitting the "probe" inbetween the Northbridge heatsink fins will give you a rough temperature guide. But you would need to add about 10-20C to get an idea as to what the Northbridge core is running at.

    But seeing some of these cores are often rated to run at high temperatures such as 100C+ as long as the heatsink is doing it's job and it's hot too (indicating good Core to Heatsink Contact) and your case has reasonable airflow (moreso if you are overclocking) then that's the main things covered.

    Edit:-
    Whats all this new anti-spam thing about when posting? Does it apply to every post you make, or every log in etc?

    The Anti-spam should only affect new members who have less that 10 posts, yes for Anti-Spam

    Why do you ask, did you get nailed with it? If so, maybe because you have been inactive for some time? I can check on it if you need me to, let me know.

    Nice to see you back, hope all is going well for you

    @ Bilabat

    Thanks Ed and yes I haven't posted on here for awhile, so that's probably why the anti-spam thing jumped on me
