I just started Folding and I noticed that running SpeedFan my North Bridge temp went up to 62c and the fan was at 5123 rpm's is that acceptable or no. System specs are in sig and thanks.

that seems pretty high for a northbridge, but then again the A64 doesn't exactly use a typical north bridge, and I really don't know much about how all that works yet.

Yeh that seemed a little strange to me as well ? I hope its nothing to be worried about and if anyone else has any ideas or info on my temps feel free to reply. Personally I've never seen such high temps coming from the North Bridge.

maybe it's misreading the sensor? If you're feeling brave, try touching the 'north bridge'. If you can use that finger to type afterwards, it's reading high

If the machine is stable it can't be too bad, and yeah, the sensor might be overreading as well.
