VRM temps on my 990XA is 52c at idle and 61 under load
990XA - At the time of this screenshot the ambient temp was around 87F
Out of curiousity, why is your reference clock 171mhz? That is sort of odd.
1. Thats very disturbing about the VRM temps. Still 80c under load isnt bad. My previous 2 boards show well over 100c under load and about 100c at idle (see second image)
Here's the thing. Isn't the thermal pad and heat sync supposed to be hotter than the components its cooling since its drawing heat away from the VRM? And isn't the sensor that's giving the reading right there by the VRM and more accurate? ....... right?
2. Open Hardware Monitor shows that whenever the PC resumes from Hibernate. Restarting the program shows the correct speeds...
