Hm... Could be the Northbridge. How old is your motherboard?

Less than a year old. Gigabyte GA-M474GM-S2 Micro ATX. I just read through this thread and the guy is having the same problem as me witht he same mobo. He touched his northbridge and didn't feel heat until like 3 seconds. http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=761667

It's a faulty sensor inherent in Gigabyte motherboards when using that particular temperature reader. I know three people with Gigabyte motherboards and all three of them have TMPIN2 readings above 80 degrees celsius. Nothing to worry about.

without doing a whole mess of googling, those are temp sensors on your mobo. depending on where they are, they can be slightly hotter or cooler due to a number of factors. there isn't much to worry about.

edit: if that doesnt sate your curiousity break out your mobo manual, and do some reading. there should be mention of them.

Happens on Speedfan, and Coretemp too. Its not really a faulty, so much as poor design and placement.

I think it depends on the mobo, my second post has a thread where someone touches their northbridge and it isn't hot.
