Thread: DG33BU ICH high temperature

  1. #1

    DG33BU ICH high temperature

    Even at initial boot ICH temperature is in the region of 60+ degree Celsius. Pleas e suggest what to do?

    I face the twice boot problem after powering down. On first press of power on button the system powers up for a few seconds and then goes off.

    Second time I press the power on button, the system starts up normally.

    I am not Overclocking - (DG33BU does not have a provision in BIOS for OCing)

    Help appreciated.

    System details
    Intel E6750 C2D
    DG33BU mobo (in built grafix)
    350W PSU
    1GB DDR2-667MHz
    120GB seagate SATA

    Hello laptech, welcome to Forums!

    I've split your post from the thread in which you piggybacked onto. Since your post has nothing to do with the thread you posted into I've not linked this thread to it.

    It's always best to begin a new thread if you are experiencing a problem and want help.

    @whizman thank you for moving this as a new thread. I had posted it in that thread as a few of the posts there had discussed the same problem.


    To the problem on hand:

    At least one of the problems: the power button problem is fixed by the latest intel BIOS update for this motherboard.

    The overheating problem remains. The temperature went upto 85 deg c in no time.

    We could use some additional information about this system. Did it ever work properly? Is it a self built, or custom, or Dell, Hp etc...

    It is a self built system. It works except for the high temperatures. Can run apps, even some gaming, but have not allowed the temperature to rise beyond 90s

    The power supply voltages are normal (as seen from Intel Desktop utilities). Processor runs cool at 47 deg c, motherboard at 46 deg c. The ICH temperature is in the region of 80+ a few minutes after boot up and goes 90+ after three or four hours of running. The MCH is about 65+ deg c. This happens even with out gaming. Just Firefox, download manager and antivirus are running. This happens even when memory or processor intensive applications are not running.

    There are three fans - power supply unit fan, cabinet fan and the processor fan - the processor fan is running at ~1000RPM.

    There are no wires obstructing air flow.

    Whether or not Intel really is having a problem with chipset temps, one thing is certain - that's not enough fans!!

    Modern systems should not be expected to run without at least one intake fan and one exhaust fan. And no, the PSU fan doesn't count - its job is to cool the PSU innards, not the whole system! Add another fan or two or three and report back.

    I have tried with a different cabinet - one air intake fan, one outlet fan, in addition to CPU and PSU fans. Still the problem persists. Any suggestions?
