    Default Gigabyte x58 ud5 northbridge temps?

    Hi Guys,

    What kind of temps are u seeing on your northbridge chips with this board?

    Mine are between 56-61c which appears to be high to me? Other temps are good. I do have high ambients, 30c+ at intake(singapore...). Even the mosfits are only around 47-48c...

    Sys: intel i7 920 @ 3.6 with corsair h50(2 sanyo denki 120*38 fans in push/pull) temps 46/48c idle.
    well ventilated case the coolmaster haf932.

    I was concerned with this as well with my ud4p but from research I have found those temps are normal for the x58 chips, mine are around 47-55c idle to hours of gaming with a 26C ambient and a lot of air movement in my case. The x58 runs a lot hotter than most chipsets and as long as your not going over 80C don't worry, I think intel says the max is like 105C. I've heard that some mb from other manufacturers will even run around 70 normally. So your temps look fine considering your high ambient temp.

    100C is the max safe temp per Intel Documents, I linked the PDF here >>

    Your temps are about normal for air cooled setup, you can always add a fan over your NB 40-80mm and bring them down to 38-44 range... But yes that is normal and safe

    Anytime!

    Ya I thought they were a bit warm myself when I first started using X58, but I now know they are indeed warmer by default than previous chipsets

    I own the evga sli le and i have great case cooling..a little bit of noise dosent bother me.
    I was concerned about 38-44c idle temps so i have a nice infrared digital thermometer and it never read as high as what the motherboard or what everest reads....when my n/bridge reads 47c and i check it with the thermometer its around 38-39c.
    so i wonder if the sensor is off or its read internally off the core.even the feel of the heatsink doesnt feel like 47c,i suspect its core temp..
    anyone know where its read off?

    Yes it is taken from the Die itself or right next to it on the PCB, so what you are seeing would be normal I would think.
