I got the X8DTL-3F and trying to figure out what system temperature (in health motoring in bios) actually corresponds?
I read the northbridge chipset need to be actively cooled with a fan. I have put a 80mm on it but I get about I get around 47 degrees celcius after about 10 mins on idle in bios… is this high?
I notice if I put the fan more on the LSI SAS1068E “chipset” I get slightly better temp at 45 degrees.
- So the system temperature corresponds to what? Does not seem to correspond to the northbridge temp.
- Do I need to put a fan on the LSI SAS1068E “chipset” and on the south bridge also?
- does the air need to be towards the chipset or outwards?
