TMP1 is the PBC area of the MoBo
TMP2 is the CPU Socket area
TMP3 is the Northbridge
I would recommend to use Openhardwaremonitor for temp monitoring instead of Speefan.

Then is most likely due to the 990FX chipset, as you mentioned. I guess if you manage to sell your current CPU, getting a 955/965 could be potentially really cheap and you will be set with that.

This is the stupid noise the gpu-fan is making. As demonstrated it's gone when I stop the fan with the fingers pushed against the rotor.
Validation from CPUID if that is any information of interest

Video of the noice + Short blur visual insight of the system.

HW-Monitor Statistics

Software Installed

For you who missed out previously explained I'm a pretty much hardcore armature in this stuff and this is my first build so I basically have almost no knowledge of hardware, but I'm enthusiastic to keep my system running smooth and always strive for optimization, so the situation is somewhat frustrating for the moment, but it's here to be solved.
So if anyone has any concrete explanation why the noise just appeared "out of nowhere" and if anyone has any link of configurations our smart things that can be changed, or bad things I've done with the system like, drivers, bios(untouched), programs. Please feel free to recommend me.

It could be the fan pulling off the motor, or the fan bearing is going dry(sewing machine oil works.. use a LIGHT AMOUNT). Or it could be that the cooler was placed on the GPU wrong and somthing(heatsink, wire's...) are interfering with the fan.

This is one of those things you need to RMA, or open it up and find out.. I would do a search for aftermarket cooler's that fit your GPU.. just so you have a back up plan and then open that bad boy up and see whats wrong.

You get all the rep lol.

OpenHardwareMonitor is amazing(I use it on all my machines), but I personally advise to check with more than one temp program.. There can be some massive difference's in temps from program to program on the UD3/5/7 boards.

Hm. Well, that puts me in a bit of an awkward position, where I don't quite know what kind of computer I want. Do I replace my CPU with a newer one or my motherboard with a cheap one? If I do the former, I'd probably go with an FX-4300, but if I do the latter, I would have to know that it could unlock and overclock (unclock?) my CPU like my previous motherboard. All the cheapest ones in the shops here in Norway seem to be 760G-based. Anyone know what those can do? Another possibility is to switch to an Intel setup, which is what I intended to do eventually, but that would be rather cost inefficient now that I actually have a fairly up-to-date motherboard.

just pick up a new Pile-driver based Cpu and your done for now.

fx4300, 6300, 8320, 8350. are all good choices. The fx- 4300 is a good value, just keep in mind the 6300 is only 10$ more. I would personally get the 6300. With your board and low budget. Otherwise i would grab the 8320.


4300- 129$
6300-139$
8320-179$
8350-209$

prices per newegg.

Yeah I have speedfan, Hwinfo and CPUID all open lol.

Also, all the programs reported the NB temperature as ~50°C, but when I actually touched the heatsink it was really hot, so I'm a bit afraid now. What would 50°C feel like? Like slightly warm, or burning hot? because it was definitely burning hot when I touched it.

50c would feel like 122 degrees F. So warm/hot your skin will burn at 140+ F .

generally its not a good idea to poke computer parts with your finger. Use a IR gun.

I know, I know, I poked at it only because my NB temperature dropped by ~15°C after I installed an intake fan in the front. It was quite surprising.

Don't rely on touch, Use an Accurate IR Thermometer or the temp monitor programs.

Using your sense of touch to figure out temps is pretty "back woods".

Your safe on NB temps to 75c-80c range. Anymore than that and your "burning up" your board. Do not touch it at those temps... You won't like it.
