Question: Why is my Northbridge Chip running at dangerously high temperatures?
I noticed my computer was getting hot to the touch, and warming my computer room significantly.. So I checked my temperatures for the system and noticed everything seemed normal except for the Northbridge Chip (127 C) and Northbridge Heat Sink (62 C). I am running no applications, CPUs are basically idle.
I am concerned that this temp is WAY higher than it should be, using Google, I found that many users were concerned that 80 C was too hot for the northbridge when the 2009 Mac Pros came out. What should my course of action be?
Is there a hardware button to reset everything back to factory without reinstalling Mac OS X?
Thank you, Apple People! 🙂nor
