    I would like to know what the approximate maximum recommended north bridge ("motherboard") temperature for the Asus P5Q is. I have an Intel Q9300 (Quad-Core) on the board and under load (F@H) my CPU hovers around 50C with the north bridge at about 48C. When I launch the "PC Probe II" utility that came with the motherboard it marks the NB temperature as "too high". The threshold is set at 45C. I can change that but what is considered too hot for the north bridge? I'm not overclocking. According to SpeedFan the hottest CPU core is about 60C.

    On my P5Q Pro the NB and the MOSFETs are connected with a hetpipe so that might affect the temperatures.

    I've got an OC'd Q9550 on it and the 'mobo' temperature is about 50-55C on load. I don't think that's too bad.

    However, once I was playing a game and the temperature shooted up to 110C, but I think that was just a bug or something... Still working fine, though.
