Asus Rampage II Gene Intel X58 mATX north bridge really toasty?

Hey folks,

I was looking at building a compact yet powerful pc to eventually replace my now tired laptop I bought to see me through uni, and thought that this was a good place to start, yet I've seen customer reviews say the northbridge runs rather hot sometimes even triggering a thermal shutdown.

Anyone know if it really is that bad? And if so anyone got any recommendations of how to keep it colder and more stable?

Cheers for any help

I think it will be depending on your cooling, airflow such as. we all know that x58s are runs hot. I just ordered mine (Gene II) can't wait

Yeah, turns out the my dream of making a mobile pc wasn't gonna work in the case I wanted without putting the money up for some decent watercooling, so I've had to scale up to a midtower, which means I'm now gonna go for an ATX mboard instead.

Thanks for the advice though guys, it's much appreciated
