Hey laurie, do you have an OEM CPU heatsink fan, after market fan, or liquid cooling?

The vrm heatsink is cooled by fan airflow, if you have some aftermarket fan or liquid that do not put any airflow to the vrm heatsink then it is more likely to get hotter, straining it by load on the CPU is exactly what will do this, especially if you overclock. There have been others here who have added fans to cool the vrm heatsink for just this type of issue. Search this thread for ideas on how to cool them. I think zip ties and small fans were in the list of fixes.

not from personal experiance but i have read some horror stories of *stuff* went wrong.

i just wasn't sure what was used. my bad

I have H100 now and the VRM's reach low 60's under heavy overclocking

Hey. I don't have any of the stuff from the photos I'm afraid. That system was from years ago. It's all air now.

However; I just ran a few things again to be sure. I had AI suite record all my temps whilst playing half an hour of Far Cry 3. And this was with the 80mm fan on the VRM turned off.
The VCORE-1 temp leveled out at 59c. Which sounds much more reasonable. And My cpu Maxed out at 52. My top GPU is still hitting the high 70s but that's another issue.
I'm thinking I could have had a sensor problem.

Earlier I had a warning that the VCORE-1 had gone over 80 but I now can't get it to get any hotter than 59c. I will keep an eye on it but I think it will likely be OK now.
Thanks for your replies. +rep as always.



Oh and the zip ties and fan were me.
I'm running an EVO 212 (Is that what it's called? Coolermaster CPU cooler, everything else is as the signature system)

your gpu hitting 70ºC... just normal.... it is right below the NB... so it gets hotter.. so relax...

still... try loading your case with 120mm fans.. i have 7 on mine... with a possitive pressure setting (heat going out through 3 exhaust fans, cold air through 4 intake)

Aye, the Raystorm is a good block. I use one in my own custom loop and it does the job nicely.

True, switching to water does ruin the airflow in the cpu / vrm/ nb area, but that is easily remedied by just adding one or two silent fans.

I've used two 60mm, attached to a bit of black plastic with sturdy double sided tape. The strip of sturdy plastic I then attached to the VRM heatsink using, again, double sided tape.

I've had someone asking me if that was a good idea - doesn't it get to hot for the tape? - but in my experience the heatsink doesn't even heat up that much.

Stress your system for a bit and then touch the heatsink (keeping ESD in mind, so ground / discharge yourself first). The heatsink felt barely warmer than my fingers.

i have a pretty good airflow (i guess)... it's always cool in my room.. like, 19ºC with a/c... or even less.... i like to keep this beast pretty cold.. and that was my fear of having a custom loop...
