Okay so I am having a Problem with Temperatures in my current system and I am wondering if this has anything to do with the Internal Graphics with Shared System memory or if I just have a bad Mobo? Granted the Mobo does not have an Actual North-bridge Fan instead it has Heat-sink only with NB Header for intake case fan which I found very strange. My problem is this during normal system loads my average temps are as follows:

CPU 85~F, System 75~F, North-bridge 104-111~F,

and during Heavy System loads such as video editing and or hard Gaming the temps jump to around:

CPU 95~F, System 85~F, North-bridge 120-140~F,

Why is my North-bridge running so Screaming Hot at all times? Is this because of the internal Graphics or because of not having an Actual North-bridge fan?

This system is using Air Cooling only! However I feel these temps on North-bridge seem way to high to be considered normal.

Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated and system has NO Overclocking enabled whatsoever!!

well, onboard chipsets do run a bit hotter, but if I were to take a guess, in your case its likely a combination of a underpowered PSU combined with a tiny case. The PSU, being old is probably just barely enough to run the system so its running hotter then normal, and combine that with that small dell case which are notorious for having poor cooling, equals no air movement over the north bridge. I would upgrade the PSU and/or the case. Since you dont have a dedicated card, you probably dont need to go excessive with the PSU-even a modern name brand 350-400 watt PSU would do it. Adding a dedicated graphics card would help it run cooler to, but agian, id get a bigger case and a bigger PSU before adding a dedicated card, most cards on the market today need at least a 450-500 watt PSU.
