Motherboard temp at 112 C

It's most likely a sensor issue. Your PC would've probably shut down long before the chipset reached 112C.

I would suggest using HWiNFO or HWMonitor instead of Speccy as it's not particularly great with sensor readings and it hasn't been updated in ages.

So, I noticed yesterday that my Motherboard chipset is reading 112 c. Not good. I've had the PC for getting onto 6 years now, so it's becoming an old boy. Does anyone have an ideas or reasoning for why it's got so hot?

 

All my case fans are running and the heat spreader seems to be mounted as normal. Nothing is overclocked.

 

Help is appreciated!

speccy is really bad with temps.

 

however, 112 celsius is not a worrisome temp for a motherboard, VRMs can be up to 125 before it's an issue.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Motherboard temperature sensors in general can be kind of wonky. My H81M board is running a stock G3258 with a downdraft style cooler, so basically zero load on the VRMs, and yet it's somehow been steady at 132C for over a year now.

Also tested on Hardware Monitor and is showing similar (108). Good to know it's not too much of an issue, it's just never been this hot before

Right that solves it then I think. Thank you guys, likely a sensor issue that's developed. The heat spreader is barely warm to the touch, so I imagine if it was actually 112 I would be able to feel that ahahha. Thanks.
