    N/B massive temp increase?

    Today i installed my w.c kit and my N/B temps have risen massive. The passive heatsink on it is now too hot to touch about 5 seconds after boot. Have remounted it by that hasnt made any difference. Any ideas?

    Why don't you replace that case fan you took of when you installed w/c?

    Is it possible that you could have nudged the heatsink so it's now in better contact with the NB?

    Not necessarily. Remember some NB don't have heatsinks at all, and if it was in partial contact it could have kept it within acceptable limits. Chipsets are generally much more tolerant of poorly fitted heatsinks than CPU's are. Does your PC still run OK?

    It was probably getting some airflow before due to the air shifted by the CPU fan & now isn't?
