I have this board ready to be installed in my old White Xbox 360, however, I would like some recommendations for cooling the Chipset as this thing gets HOT HOT HOT!.
Please Intel, make some alternative cooling recommendations! I'd like my Board to Last.
The board is configured with
Core i3 3225
16 GB Corsair Ram (1.35v)
1 180 gb Intel SSD
1 mSata Mushkin 120 gb HDD
Centrino Ultimate N 6300 wifi card
Intel HT55 Low Pro CPU cooler.
We would like to inform you that the Intel Q77 Express Chipset can reach 104 degrees C for Maximum Case Temperature. The Chipset is designed to work at high temperatures so there is no reason to be concerned about damaging the board in this case.
