Asus P8P67 Revised B3 Higher CPU temps ?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, glad to be a new member of the board. I noticed there were quite a bit of threads regarding this board, but did not want to hijack anyone's thread.

Anyhow, I did my second build a few months ago with a non-revised board. CPU was running at about 29 to 32 deg C. Temps would idle at 30 mostly. When the revised boards came out I figured I might as well swap it in just to be safe. Unfortunately, booted up with the new revised board and was idling at about 50 deg C. I immediately ripped everything apart to reapply the thermal paste and make sure everything was kosher. Booted up once again and was still getting temps in the high 40s to low 50s. I should note that these temps are coming from the bios. I proceeded to rip everything apart a second time with similar results as mentioned before (same temps). I've read some things on here and other forums with people upgrading their bios and such, but I really don't even know where to start. Could the mobo have problems ? I can't even OC anymore : /.. I would appreciate any advice, thanks in advance !
William

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm cooling with a Thermaltake Frio with both fans @ full RPMs

I'm not too concerned with your idle temps but your load temps.

Now with a new motherboard/revision it could be pushing more Vcore. This does happen and is perfectly normal.

I would manually set your vcore to start with. If that doesn't improve it then go into windows and check your onload temps.

Hey, thanks. Going to use the following settings suggested by Tribeca http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ing-guide.html

Ai Overclock Tuner: MANUAL
BCLK Freqency: 100 (for now)
Memory Frequency: Manually set to stock for your DIMMs (I'll leave you to play with this once you like your CPU OC)
Internal PLL: Enabled (but note that one user had trouble OCing his RAM with this enabled)
OC Tuner: DO NOT USE
EPU Power Saving Mode: Disabled
Turbo Ratio: start at stock, increase gradually as you work on your OC

DRAM Timing Control: Manually set to stock for your DIMMs

CPU Power Management:
CPU Ratio: Auto
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology: Enabled
Turbo Mode: Enabled
Turbo Ratio: same as in the main Ai Tweaker menu
Additional Turbo Voltage (ATV): start at 0.004, increase by 0.008 as necessary to achieve stability as you OC. If you decide at some point to Enable LLC, you will need to decrease this (or your Offset) setting by approximately 0.08v to keep the same voltage.
All other settings leave on Auto

Offset Mode Sign: +
CPU Offset Voltage: 0.005
DRAM Voltage: 1.500v (or w/e is stock for your DIMMs)
VCCIO Voltage: 1.05v (increase if OCing your RAM)
PCH Voltage: 1.05v (increasing may help you increase BCLK, use the color coding to determine what's safe).
Load-Line Calibration: Disabled (but see discussion above)
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled

I wouldn't overclock just yet.

I'd go in, run prime95 or Intel burn test and see what your on load temps are. If they are within what they should be then overclock otherwise there could be an issue.

When you are in BIOS your cpu is NOT at idle. You cannot compare windows idle to bios idle.
On a side note, your temps seem similar to mine, I idle @ 34ish (80F ambient) in windows and while in bios it is 47ish.

Okay, will do. If I remember correctly with my first non-revised board, under load in windows with prime temps wouldn't go over 40. So, not really sure what temps I should be seeing with this new revised board.

If you're hitting stupid temps like 65c then we'll look at the way you put the thermal paste on.

That makes sense, I didn't know that. However, I am simply comparing the idle temps that I got on my first non-revised board to my new and currently installed revised B3 board. The 20 deg C difference in those two temps angers me !!! This is the reason I believe there may be a problem. Although, I need to install my AI Tweaker so I can see my temps in windows and also get some temps with it under load as compuman mentioned.

Use coretemp, tiny application and i've found it to be accurate.

Well just ran Prime 95 and did the blended test. Message came up saying my CPU temps have reached 60 in Windows 7. Don't have AI Tweaker installed, and I'm not aware of a way to check CPU temp in windows (I'm fairly new to Windows 7)
