That would be to hot for me.  Can you get a chipset fan on that chip?  Your system will run better if you can cool it down.

How is your case cooling?  Are you getting the heat out of the case?

How are you reading the chipset temperature?

Hi A..

A good question... What does Everest mean by 'MCP'...  nVidia means 'Media and Communications Processor'...   In your case, that is an nForce 430/ gForce 6100 combination. 

Since the BIOS on your board doesn't interpret the MCP temperature, it is doubtful that Everest can....  However, I would write to Lavalys and ask how Everest can read the 'MCP' temperature when the BIOS doesn't.... what algorithy Everest uses to interpret the 'MCP' temperature signals.

Hi Ulrich and thanks for th equick answer, yes, MCP suppose to be Media and Communications Processor, and you right when you say that if the own Bios didn't know how to interprete the value on MCP, how could everest...

The thing is if i touch now the MCP heatsink with the outside skin of my finger i can't hold because is reaaaaally hot, so i think i have to buy an adittional mini cooler to low the temperature.

By the way, is that high temperature normal for the MCP?

Any idea will be welcome.

Greetings and thanks Ulrich for the answer. AT³.

Hi A...

Here are a few suggestions for aftermarker coolers

and some fans...

But before you do anything else, get a can of compressed air and blow some on the heatsink and see if the temperature changes.

This thread is listed in the Elite Posts.

Thanks for helping me Ulrich, i added a minicooler to the MCP, and other to the video card.

The difference was impressive... check the picture... below.

----> Before and after cooling

Almost perfect solved, 'cause since those coolers was added, the pc eventually turn off it selft.

But in 3 o 4 days, no more than 2 or 3 times, no short circuit inside (with the cable conections of those added coolers), Votage are perfectly... let's see what happend.

Again, thanks a lot Ulrich. Greetings- AT³.

WOW!... What a huge difference...  Thank you for your post and confirmation that Everest is definitely able to read the MCP temperature, even when the BIOS does not....
