This is an odd question probably but I would like to decrease the performance of my PC from BIOS because the North Bridge is getting too hot. The system (North Bridge) was always hot but it never went past the maximum set which is 90 degrees in BIOS. Passing this value triggers a reset.
The fans seem to be working, including the RAM cooler. So it is hard to understand why this has started to happen.
I would like to continue to use this PC for a few months before I go for a more permanent fix. (Like replacing the peripherals or adding more powerful cooling features)
I know things will get better if I remove a RAM pair (I have 8 Gig in total) but I am hoping to avoid that for now.
I also don't want to turn off the temperature threshold that triggers the reset because I do not want to kill the system completely.
Is there anything else to stabilize my system in BIOS by playing with voltage, fan speeds etc?
I am using the default BIOS setup now and I do not want to try a BIOS update since it is not relevant. (The system was stable for over a year)
