    N/B/running hot

    My North Bridge is at 126%. It's on a Asus Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard

    Now this one I built for my boy and it sat lol for about a year. I'M RIDING IT NOW. Is that to hot for it. I no the N/B gets hotter than S/B due to air flow. And I did have a 3500RPM fan on it. I must have took it off. So my question to you is it to hot if so should I put that fan back on. If I can locate it lol.

    I touch them both and they don't feel hot.

    That is a common issue with your motherboard. What kind of cpu cooler are you using?

    You should add a fan and point it at the NB

    Had same problem with my Gigabyte MB, those AMD NBs do run hot, no matter which make. Managed to get it down to 80c by installing a better, active cooler on it.

Did anybody check Advanced Boot options in Msconfig. Seemed to me that my computer is booting too slow, checked those options and lo and behold it's been set to one core only. !!!! After fixing that it boots and run much faster.
