What should I do if motherboard temperature is too high?


Whether it's a desktop computer or a laptop, heat dissipation has always been a very important issue, and computer hardware most in need of heat dissipation is processor, graphics card, and motherboard. Both CPU and graphics card have professional heatsinks. These two components will also attract attention of many people who frequently use computers. However, heat dissipation of motherboard has not been paid attention to, especially high temperature of motherboard, integrated graphics card is a problem. Many netizens have encountered problem that motherboard temperature is too high, but they do not know what to do. Here I will tell you how to take action when you know that motherboard temperature is too high.

What to do if motherboard temperature is too high

1. If motherboard temperature is very high immediately after starting computer, this is usually due to motherboard hardware. After turning on board, temperature of board rises sharply above 65 degrees. After opening case, touch chipset and capacitors on north and south bridges of board. If it is not very hot, then there is a problem with motherboard hardware, and you need to contact service center or workshop for computer repair.

2. If motherboard temperature has become high after computer has been running for a while, it may be due to running too much software or large games. In this case, high temperature requires removing dust from motherboard and adding a case fan. In addition, close unnecessary software and computer should rest for a while after running large-scale games for a long time. Use computer housekeeper, 360 guards, etc. to clean up computer.

Because heatsink on motherboard dissipates heat and there is no cooling fan, which is passive heat dissipation, heat generated on motherboard is mainly dissipated through chassis air duct. If case is too closed or environment is not ventilated, it will raise temperature of motherboard.

3. In addition, you can choose a water-cooled heatsink for motherboard, which is relatively expensive. Generally, users can add a small fan to motherboard northbridge heatsink to replace heatsink with better heat dissipation.

4. If motherboard's northbridge heatsink is not properly secured, overheating northbridge will also cause motherboard to overheat.

If laptop motherboard temperature is too high, laptop's heat dissipation port may be blocked by dust and dirt. Alternatively, you can add a laptop heat dissipation plate or a cooling fan. . If heat is transferred to motherboard due to high stability of CPU and graphics card and cannot be dissipated in time, you need to start from root cause and prioritize solving CPU or graphics card temperature problem.
