Default Hot Chipset

My southbridge chip is running at like 61C according to my temp monitor on my case. i put the temp reader inside the heatsink and it goes ^ to about 62C. what should i do? i just got my NZXT case with 3X 120mm and 1 80MM so i don't think that airflow is a problem....i never monitored the temps before so idk if it always runs this hot or not...thinking of possibly getting a aftermarket heatsink for it?

suggestions/comments appreciated(sp)

EDIT: now i'm thinking it might be the northbridge....i forgot :P same thing though pretty much

well I got a new chipset heatsink (just for fun, temps have always been fine) and the temps dropped by about 3C. Now it's running at 47C when the cpu is at 100% load.

So atleast a new heatsink didn't improve my temps much, but u could always give it a try. The new heatsink is probably just like $5 or something.

That's like 3, and that's nothing. If it doesnt work properly, you have it their for the future. It should work anyway..

Also, the case temperature readers have always proved to be unaccurate..

Is the sensor named Northbridge, Southbridge or Power Modules, or even PWM?
