Northbridge overheating issues
Was wandering what temps you guys have with your northbridge as mine is reaching 60C on my x2 3800 just listening to music!!!
With my zalman9500 it started off at 55c idle and climbing, and with my stock hsf it would be at 45C, but now both reach to high for my taste.
They both seem to be attached correctly only problem i could see is i did mix a little of zalman compound with compound from stock hsf, but even if that was the case when i first installed the zalman with only its paste it still hit 60c.
My cpu temps seem fine though at idle would be 28-30C with zalman and ~33 with stock hsf.
I did bend a few pins then manage to bend them back to be able to get it into the socket, could that be a problem ??
Would love some input, thanks.
