Exclamation my motheboard is blazing hot!

I have the ASUS P5N-D. I beleive the big HS would be the NB? Its at 1.5v, according to asus probe and everest im idling 44c. I do have the little fan that came with the mobo for the HS. If I touch it, it BURNS my finger, I mean burn. U can feel the heat coming off of it from like 1in away. Should I buy a NB HSF?

If it's that hot, you should either lower the voltage, get an aftermarket HSF, or reseat with aftermarket thermal paste.

if I lower the NB will I have to reduce the HT and SB also?
*EDIT* any recommendations for aftermarket coolers?

Not necessarily. Depends if lowering the NB, will jeopardize the stability of your overclock. But if it means decreasing the speed a little, so you can have comfortable temperatures, that's up to you.

I'd rather have better temperatures.

I would suggest Thermalright's HR-05 series, but make sure they're compatible with your chipset.

Wait, are you using the NB fan it came with? What size is it? Maybe you can just put a bigger fan on it.

And just wondering, what software are you using, to monitor the NB's temperature? ASUS Probe or something like that?

a nice fan over it could do the trick. I bought a zalman fan bracket that can house any size fan. I can put it over the gpu, nb, ram or add additional cooling to the cpu. It attaches to your pci slots on your case
