Nforce4 Chipset overheating

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently brought a DFI Expert board, and after a couple of days noticed that the chipset was overheating, so I removed the board and took of the HS&F I noticed under the fan there was a tab between the chip it self and the heasink which had writen all over it "pull tab here" :confused: , anyway I took that out and thought that may of curred my problem, I decided to remove the thermal pad and AS5 it before replacing th HS&F, however acording to MBM5 my NF4 chipset is still idleing at 49oC :confused:.


I understand that some people were having heat issues with this board, but my CPU and PWMIC seem to be reporting correctly.


I have read AG's instructions on removing the thermal pad and replaing with a paste of my choice to the letter.


Any help on this subject would be much appreciated.
