    CHIPSET TEMPERATURE PROBLEM?

    pacoy2k

      Hi!

       

      I'm needing some support for my motherboard / chipset

       

      It's a DP35DP, Chipset G33/G31 express, CPU: Q9650 @ 3GHz, 4Gb ram DDR2-800,  and two hard drives 250 and 300Gb

      Bios is: DPP3510J.86A.0517.2009.01.07.2203

      OS IS WINDOWS XP-SPCK 2

       

      When I run Intel Desktop utility it's hardware montior displays very hot temperatures for ICH: 93ºC and for MCH: 75ºC. (199ºF & 167ºF)

       

      Is that normal?

       

      I took off the cover of the PC trying to help cooling the chips but nothing changed.

       

      Should I have install some kind of special cooler for the chipset?

      Has anyone of you got a problem like this?

      Is it a problem at all?

       

      Thanks,
