While doing some routine checks today, I noticed that my Motherboard temperature in Everest Home is very high compared to my other temps.

Does Motherboard refer to the chipset fan? I have noticed that my computer has been louder lately & I plan on doing a test on all the fans.
Will start with the chipset fan for sure if it's really that high in temperature.

Thanks in advance.

Since there is no way in hell a mobo should be that hot:

1- Either Everest is having trouble reading your probe, (esp since the rest of your PCs temps are fine)
2- Or something's gonna melt! Run a benchmark and measure your ram sticks temps directly, though not by touching ideally...

Ya..that is insanely hot..check that out and make sure it isn't true..or that something isn't melting in your case.

My idles at 22. NOT 98..haha.

Ok, thats a relief.. I just downloaded the latest Everest trial version & it gives a much better read-out than the old outdated one I have been using.
The old Everest Home didn't even recognize my MB in the first place, big "duh" on my part. :p

Anyway, I still have to isolate that really loud annoying fan issue that I suspect will be the hardest fan to remove.
It will require me to remove some hardware just to yank it out. :(

Thanks for the initial response guys, I'm just glad my MB isn't in meltdown mode. :)

The max temp for motherboards is 65C so anything over will make you board unstable so it's wrong.
