Question about Intel Motherboard

Northbridge Overheating Gigabyte MA790X-DS4 The Northbridge is idling at 84 celcius.... what do I do? that is way to warm .... and it is causing the computer to reboot constantly... especially when I'm half way through a laddered tournement match on COD4 ... It's worrying as I have read many reviews and they say this board sets on fire within 3 months of purchase :-/ Thanks in advance.

Add a fan and put it on the NB heatsink. Also reapply quality thermal paste while your at it. I have a Gigabyte and my NB does get warm, so i put one of those small fans, got some double-sided tape, and that was it. Hope you fix it.

Gigabite motherboard overheating


Well, you've left a lot to consider. Have you checked that the case and CPU fans are running? Where do the unit sit? Units that are placed inside computer desks that have doors in front of them are just begging for overheating problems as there is very poor air ciculation. Is the CPU sitting on the floor? Here the enemy becomes dust and dirt. Dust and dirt are the most common causes of PC heat issues. The CPU heat sink becomes clogged with dirt and cannot cool effectively. Use canned air (available at most stores that sell PCs) to blow out the heat sinks. DO NOT REMOVE THE HEAT SINK/FAN ASSEMBLY unless you have proper thermal paste to apply for the remounting. Usually a good cleaning is all most machines need.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Having replaced my PSU, I now have a new problem. In games or scrolling in IE8, there is a loud buzzing noise coming from the CPU area. What could be done? I'm not sure if it's the CPU or the Northbridge,...


Electrostatic interference may also be the cause, for some reason, I'm not exactly sure of, there are PC's that emit this high-pitch squeal or noise when doing certain tasks on the PC, usually this can be tracked down to the sound system in the machine, but sometimes is not.

Also, some motherboards come with a safety feature that can cause the noise, it's called a voltage regulator, these can sometimes go bad, and while they may still function properly, the circuitry can emit these noises as over or under voltage is being rectified as it is passed through them. I have 3 servers here that used to do it untill i replaced the module, on a desktop motherboard, these are usually built into the motherboard circuitry and cannot be replaced.
