I just bought a DG43GT and found that the temperature of the ICH seems high. When the room temperature is about 26 degrees Celsius, the temperature of ICH gradually increases from about 58 degrees Celsius at initial boot to about 84 degrees Celsius. Is this temperature normal? The chassis has a rear fan and a fan on the side-panel running properly.
The maximum temperature for the ICH is 112 °C and for the MCH is 103 °C. If the current temperature on your system for the ICH is 84 °C, this is a normal temperature.
