What is the normal temp for the Asus Crosshair IV Formula?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
NB Freq is at 2617MHz @ 1.2v
And my CPU is at 3.9Ghz @ 1.44v

NB temp is at 61-63 degrees under full load (prime95 blend) and the CPU 51 degrees at full load.

Are these temp ok? I am not a 24/7 pc guy. I only play games so they are NOT in full load all the time.

i'd say that's fine for your NB. i have a setting in my asus board's bios that shuts down my pc if the NB ever got past 95C, so they can withstand a good amount. if that was your idle nb temp, then something might be wrong, but for full load that seems okay.

if you're still concerned, you can always reseat the heatsink using better thermal compound.

I just ran about 15 min of Prime95 thinking your NB temps sound high. They are in comparison to mine. I got 45-47C NB and 27-28C MB under load. I shut it down because my CPU got too hot though... oh Florida summers.....

61-63 is not going to be a problem. Depending on what your room ambient is that does seem slightly higher than normal. Mine runs at max of 45c under prime95 with ambient of 24c.

As mentioned above you can set a temp limit to have the mobo shut down if you like for safety, look on page 3-32 of the Formula manual for more details.

So, is there a problem with my mobo then? It's weird you have more Mhz and it runs cooler... My room temp is at 24-26 degrees. Is there a way to have cooler mobo?

Hmm I see. But is there any way to fix this? Could I like take out the Mobo heatsink and apply new thermal paste?

Could you do me a favor, and run stock clocks and see what the NB temps are? I just ran everything in stock settings and I get 50-51 degrees load at 23 degrees ambient.
