However, Northbridge heatsink is installed so that a CPU cooler can contribute to its cooling. If an ETA is available it will be displayed on hover.

It seems again related to the memory mapping issue and the only know fix is…well, using less memory. The board alivexfie-esata2 suffers from a shortage of fixed USB 2.
