And no. they are entirely made of plastic with 2 steel springs on each pin. i already tried to push them back through by pinchin the other ends of the pushpin, without result. I see no other option than breaking them. Can I replace them with nuts, bolts and plastic washers?

you can use bolts and plastic washers. Few people on here do it to increase the seating pressure. I did it...

The plastic push pins are a pain in the ass. If you use a small set needle nose piers they don't give you to much fight.

It gives the same cpu temp as Tmpin2 does. (ET6 is a horrible program) so I still don't know for sure... just one post from a gigabyte moderator on the gigabyte forum isn't enough of an answer to me, because the GGTS says (indirectly) the oposite. Maybe I'm stubborn, but its quite important for me. i don't want to fry my cpu thinking that it has another sensor. under load, the temp difference is 20 degrees so i don't feel comfortable by just guessing and taking everything everyone says.
*sigh*
can also someone give me tips on removing the pushpins on the nb heatsink? i cant remove them without breaking them by just pinching the backside.
and has someone a suggestion how I can test which temps are which? i could do a repaste but I cant reach the NB and i don't want to drain my waterloop again. I also can't see any temp differences if I place a fan right on top of the NB heatsink.
I can't also test the difference with temps under load, because my water will heat up and won't cool down to the old point after about 30 mins. in that time, the roomtemperature has also dropped or raised. both the tmpin1 and tmpin2 temperatures will rise while overclocking.
I'm also thinking in buying a temps sensor. if that won't bring a conclusion, I will buy another board. I have had it with this one but it looks so good frown.gif

Make sure that you test a few(or all) of the temp programs you can. Some people have more issue that other's but it is common for some programs to botch temps. On my UD3 board I cannot use anything but OpenHardwareMonitor, All the other programs (too many to list...) give false reading's. HardWareMonitor reads my Timpin0 and 2 as high as 128c... on stock setting's, clocks and voltages with 100% stability.

I have always read the temp sensor's according to "said support fourm's" answer, Its been over a year 24/7 @3.8-4.0 depending on the time of year. I have to drop the clock's and voltage down a tad in the hot summer months or it will over heat. in that time it has had maybe a collective week of "off time. *Knock's on wood* Never had a single issue(BOSD, Crash, freeze or any other instability) that was a result of the temps, or overheating... and I beat the tar out of that PC("They Beat Me" in my sig rig). An accurate laser thermometer can help too.

That's how your MoBO sensors should look and if you don't manage to remove the plastic clips without breaking them, just break them and replace them with proper screws (and while you do that, don't forget to replace the TIM for a proper one) IMO is something that everyone should do (I know I will very soon)
post #3844 of 12377
after googling around it's still a mystery what/where TMPIN2 is.
some say it's the mosfets, others say it's under the CPU socket.
after 4000 posts here, has anyone gotten a precise answer yet?

tmpin2 is the northbridge. on UD3

On the ud5 and ud7 boards its the northbridge+VRMS (they are connected via heatpipe)

And your temps are crazy. 73c on the cpu under load is bad. Not to mention your motherboard reaching 91c.


Your temps should look more like this

He has been given all the answers to solve his issue in the last few pages. Best to just ignore it.

edit: @Skynet. Based on that pic you just posted, you have lots of problems with temps, your system is going to die, fast if you keep those temps up. Both CPU and mobo are over or right at their highest maximum safe temp.

Ed - Thanks for the input - ignore the top CPUID temps - it never gets there - this software does not work right on my PC for whatever reason.

BTW i'm back down to 4.1ghz after i blue screened during a game at 4.2ghz redface.gif CPU does not get over 60c anymore while only peaking at 1.48v

If i were to apply extra copper heat sinks to the TMPIN2 location, exactly where would that physically be on my UD5 mobo? I see the mofset heatsink, the pipe and the northbridge heatsink and have a case fan blowing down above them. are you sure CPUID2 is not the flat Southbridge heat sink?

TMPIN02 is the physical north bridge chipset.

Some people confuse NorthBridge for CPU-NorthBridge(CPU-NB). The CPU-NB is part of the CPU and has no location on the board directly.

Hey guys, there is one thing I'm afraid of. My UD5 is revision 1.0, so it doesn't have LLC control. Also there doesn't seem any single user in official FX owner thread who has done any overclocking with UD5.
Will I be able to overclock this new FX to 4.8GHz at least ?

With my current 1055T, I have to set 1.525 volts in BIOS to make it stable at 4.0 GHz. Though voltage at stress testing is only 1.456 volts, and it is perfectly stable and also temps are under 60c with H70 (except in summer). But there is voltage drop of 0.069v.

Can anyone tell if this new FX will overclock on my UD5 (Without LLC) ?

yes you will be able to overclock it. You will need to set the voltage in bios higher than what would normally be to combat voltage drop. Same deal with the new Fx processors as your 1055T.

Keep in mind generally speaking the FX processors are cooling limited. Most people cannot run more than 1.4-1.45 volts to the cpu with the Fx processors with out overheating, it takes some serious cooling to keep them cool.
