Here is the link where you can check the max tcase temperature that the cpu is supposed to work:
As you can note, it is up to 74.1 degrees cel.
The chipset temperature can be found on the TPS:
Here are some tips that you can try: (see my reply)
Make sure to have the latest bios version installed.
All the best,
@ Rajiv Thanks for information
it shows highest is at 92c so it is still in limits
@ Robert No, i havent changed anything and about fans I had my Mobo open on a wooden table for a day processor temperature still reads 40-55 depending on load and Chipset just stayed at 75 at 100% load so it shows a need for Southbridge cooler My 3d card (msi 4670 2d1g) is at 30-40c at stock speeds so issue of heat from its being too close to chipset is also out of question
and fans I currently have 90mm exaust at rear 80mm exaust at side and 60mm intake at bottom
may be my room temperature is to blame
thanks for replies

sounds like adding a southbridge cooler would be a good idea. Do you have a way of checking the suothbridge volts if there too high that could be your problem ,On My sys I have a coulpe of apps that you can see the volts on everything , I know not all PSUs put out the right volts so I check.
the images of my motherboard are in the zip file in the link
bro My problem is that I am living in a small city of a 3rd world country so getting a southbridge cooler of my choice would cost me 55$ for shipping and $10 for it but will it be helpful to use a pentium 3 cooler ? i remember that my old pentium 3 cooler looked like most chipset coolers and which application can I use to check volts?
Seeing chipset temperatures in the 60-80 degree range are normal and good; you don't need any replacement/additional cooling unit. According to the G31 Express Chipset Datasheet, the MCH is good to well over 100 degrees (catastrophic trip point is not until 115 degrees). According to the ICH Thermal and Mechanical Design Guidelines, the Tcontrol temperature for the ICH is 101 degrees. Bottom line, your device is happy where it is...
