Hey, yesterday i started up speccy and i noticed something weird. My mytherboard was on 130 °C. I dont now why because my motherboard was usually on 60°C. Anyone who knows what is happening or know how to solve it?

Are you 100% sure, right? I am scared of letting it be
Like I said in the post above if its 130 degree, your board wont be booting...it's not possible.
If you're concerned about the temps of your chipset you can remove the little heat-sink, maybe apply thermal compound (thermalpad) on the chip and place the heat-sink back again.
If the heat-sink is not even warm means 2 things.... either its not contacting properly with the chipset and cannot dissipate heat... or it's contacting okay and just the chipset itself is cool.
If you're concerned you can try that... or even removing it completely and replacing it with different one (even one with a fan), but if you're not careful you might damage your board.
Usually those measures are taken when your motherboard reading are high... but the heatsink is cold on touching, but in your case your readings are impossible so.... it can be either way.

It's not possible your board to be 130 °C and not be dead... what program do you use for checking your components temperatures. Either the program you use to check the temperature is wrong or the sensor is faulty.

Well i guess the sensor is faulty...
If you're really concerned about it.. you can try touching (with care),
the little heat-sink under the blue PCI-E slot... and see if it's burning hot...



If you want to go even further you can buy yourself a chip-set cooler

Ok, Thank you so much :)
