Please help, this is driving me crazy
I assembled this machine a couple of months ago, when not gaming the machine is perfect , but playing Assassins Creed the machine shut down every other day, with Prototype no problem, but with Saints Row Third shuts down after 5 minutes
i started doing some tests and found that tmpin2 (North Bridge) was going to 100 ° and that was causing the shut down,
please see the screenshots, with the BIOS default "optimized" values takes a little more than a minute to go to 90 °
Seems that the gaming issue had to do with the amount of data that SRT sends to the processor (maybe prototype doesnt do it so much)
I read some posts about changing the thermal compound, so I cleaned the old one and put Artic Silver 5 from Radio Shack with no improvement
then i "underclocked" but the temperature went up to 90° again in about 4 minutes
Any ideas? RMA? tweak other parameters in BIOS? extra cooler? buy another MoBo? MX-4 instead of artic silver 5?
Thanks in advance guys
Like M3TAl said, TPMIN2 is not northbridge temp, it is socket temp. Your cpu is the one that is overheating. Like he also said, you're killing your cpu.

I hope he didn't melt the silicon lol. Wondering if he is using the stock heatsink, aftermarket that can't handle 125w+ TDP, or just a really bad mount on cpu.

TMPIN2 isn't CPU temperature or socket CPU like you say, some people say it's NB and others VRM/Mosfets, but i confirm it isn't CPU socket, because either in idle or load is impossible the values it gives to me and many others...
post #1474 of 3278
Well for me its always ~12C more than my core temp and when core drops TMPIN2 drops with it everytime and same when raise in temp. Also, at least for me, the temp in AMD Overdrive for cpu matches TMPIN2.

I mean look at that core temp for his FX-8150... 77C... that's way above normal operating limits. He should be idling in the 30's and loading in 50's or worst case low 60's.

For me not, and i have my Phenom 955 with good air cooling and low voltage for 24/7 at 3.96GHz (1.39V VCore) and at full load TMPIN2 is much more than CPU or Core temps...

In the OP:

Q:In CPUID HWMonitor, which of the "TMPIN" temperatures apply to what?
A:TMPIN0 = Motherboard (chipset) temp; TMPIN1 = VRM temperature; TMPIN2 = CPU socket temperature

He said the following too:

Which phrase is the correct??? If one time said one thing, and other time said other thing...

For me at least (and in other forums other users too), the values that gives TMPIN2 are impossible to be for CPU or CPU Socket like you say...
post #1478 of 3278
Guys, thanks so much for your answers, they are giving me some light, to your points

1) I am using all the stock heatsink/coolers
2) I just purchased a better cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus ($30 in newegg) , it will come in some days, lets see how it goes. For some reason im reluctant to buy a $200 water cooler (maybe im cheap !)
3) now that i see what i did, i only changed the thermal compound of the heatsinks in red circles, not the ones of the heatsinks in green, so i will give a shot and let u know



4) about what TMPIN2 is. seems there is some controversy about it, im sure about something: I dont know either, but as was posted "after installing a water cpu cooler the TMPIN2 issue was fixed" so seems to me that may be physically close to the CPU (below? socket?)

will keep u posted about 3) today and 4) when the new cooler arrives

thanks !!!

actually this is the offical answer from gigabyte (just arrived) , it confirms that TMPIN2 = Northbridge
I will check their suggestions

Dear customer,

SYS = TMPIN0 = Motherboard
CPU = TMPIN1 = CPU
MCH = TMPIN2 = Northbridge
Seems cpu overheated. Check cpu and Sys temp in bios sensor direct detection will be more precise.
Do attempt to check and test with procedure below:
1) Test single stick memory a time on slot1 ( slot close to 24 pin ATX connector) , it could be one of unstable stick memory cause issue. Reset bios to load fail-safe and load optimized defaults,
2) DDR3 using 1.5v standard, mother board bios memory voltage is base on 1.5v ( default). Check current memory voltage spec( spec printed on memory module label) adjust memory voltage match under M/B intelligent tweaker memory voltage control.
For example: memory is 1.65v type, change memory from 1.5v to 1.65v.
3) Check cpu temp in bios under PC health status, normal cpu temp should be 33-59C, over 60C considers as overheated.
4) Test with other PCIE graphic card if above procedure checked and issue still persists.
If cpu was oveheated confirmed, remove old thermal pad betwee cpu and cooling heatsink fan, re-apply with new thermal grease or better quality cooling heatsink fan replacement needed.

Best regards,

Gigabyte technical support team.

Either way your CPU is overheating when cores are at 77c. Are/were you running an oc on your 8150? The stock cooler should have no problem cooling cpu at stock settings.

Guys
a couple of updates about the temperature mistery

1) still is a mystery
2) I changed the termal compound of the processor without any impact
3) I followed the instructions of gigabyte (seee below):
3.1) removed 1 memory stick , without change
3.2) forced teh bios to give 1.65 volts to the memory (memory specifications) and nothing
3.3) as mentioned in 2) there was no change with the termal compound of the cpu
the suggestions about thE memory didnt make sense but i tried them anyway without success

At this point the only thing left is to wait for the new heatsink to arrive and test it (COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus)

will let u know
THANKS FOR THE IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS applaud.gif
