    PCH is the chipset which is manufactured on an older process usually with larger transistors running at lower speeds that can take higher temperatures.

    Still, 100C isn't normal.

    So, since the PCH handles a lot of different hardware mingling, should I check out my BIOS settings for USB/SATA/Memory adjustments? Or maybe PCIe speeds? The PCH temperature under the full load from OCCT's power supply test is hitting 103C after 10 minutes, and it seems to be stabilizing at that temperature. If I run Overwatch/Witcher 3/Doom/Gamecube games (without any other application), it takes twice as long now to crash as it did when I didn't have a thermal pad making contact to the chassis (it currently crashes exactly at 112C).

    I also have a USB hub connected via my Dell 2417DG which the peripherals crash just prior to 112C on the PCH. The computer still crashes regardless of whether or not I'm connected to the monitor.

    A Hell lots of the Aw Bgabooks with all too high PCH temp had huge problems. And never fixed by Dell:vbbiggrin: Death or other problems due high PCH temp doesn't matter:biggrin:

    It could be the voltage supply circuit has an issue and is over volting it. There is not much you can do but RMA it.

    But for it to happen after restoring BIOS defaults?

    Could be unrelated and you had not realised.
