Default Re: Southbridge (maybe northbridge?) overheating problem.

Has it been running for years at 94 C? o.O

Seems to me like it should have been damaged beyond all repair by now.

As far as i know, it may have been this way from the start. I started checking things out when my dad said one of the fans was making a weird noise. He said it stopped, so i was checking for a dead fan. The weirdest thing is that the intel desktop monitor still shows 93 C as within the safe range. It doesn't set off any alarms until like 120.
