My motherboard intel chipset is overheating. What can I do?

My PC configuration-

Processor-13th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i5-13500 2.50 GHz

Motherboard- ASUS Prime B760-PLUS D4

RAM-PNY XLR8 8GB DDR4 3200MHz 1slot

SSD- HP EX900 M.2 500GB PCIe NVMe

PSU- Gigabyte P450B 450W 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply

Casing- OVO E-335DW RGB White Gaming Casing


Did you change your front intake fans? Often times, low-end casing’s fans are cheap & bad. If the fans are bad, it will not pull enough airflow even if the casing has mesh front panel. You can test it by opening the side panel & put hands behind the front fans to check if there is enough airflow.

Consider replacing your casing fans with good ones with high CFM. Noctua fans are best but pricey, alternatively Cooler Master sickle flow has good reputation for airflow with a good price.

If you like modding, you can hang a fan with cable ties to cool the chipset. Though, this will ruin your aesthetic view. If your motherboard has no warranty left, you can repaste the chipset.


The first thing you need to do is to properly clean the inside of your PC case. The most common reason for chipset overheating is dust build-up.

Next up, make sure there’s enough airflow around your PC case and set the fans in a push-pull configuration.


I think, your thermal paste has dried out.

Usually a good thermal paste stays ok for 2 years but if you always run processor intensive games or apps it dries out much sooner.

So buy a good thermal paste and apply it on your CPU
