My mothebroard's "FSB"

Recommended Posts

I have a Gigabyte GA-EP41T-USB3 motherboard that is supposed to handle "FSB" of 1333. In the BIOS setup does that equate to "333" because it is quad-pumped? It is a Core 2 Duo system. It does not handle 333; the northbridge gets very hot.

You are right about 333MHz being equal to a 1333MHz FSB. It's interesting that your having trouble with it, as the specs says it should be able to do that fine

It is the noarthdige heatsink that gets very hot so if it a bad mount it would otherwise get hotter.

Got pictures of the case?

 

Poor airflow would be the first guess as Dasa says and also look for dust build up.

Has it been overclocked and voltage increased but not lowered?

Have you checked to see if there is a BIOS update that addresses this, in case it is a known problem for this board?

 

-Edit-

 

Checked, no BIOS fixes specifically for this problem.

 

Also, I just thought, do you use on board graphics or a dedicated graphics card. If you use a dedicated graphics card, make sure the on board is switched off in the BIOS settings.
