I have almost the samo board and same CPU Heatsink. NB didnt affect my overclock, becouse i didnt need to raise NB voltage. My NB HS is also hot and thats the case with all motherboards from this Gigabyte series, not just yours and mine. NH-D14 ( and preaty much any oder CPU cooler ) do not cool NB HS and they did not designed to do so.

Yes but trust me, there's a lot incidental airflow from my NH-D14 to the NB heatsink. I know they're not designed to cool the NB heatsinks nor the VRM, but it helps take down 1 degree or 2. And your NB didn't affect your overclock because you overclock via multiplier, not the bus itself.

1. The Northbridge Heatsink gets really hot even when everything runs at stock speeds. And I have 3x 120mm fans attached on my case. Plus I have a Noctua NH-D14, which should also help cooling down the NB heatsink.
2. I have 1055T, and I can't push it further than 3.8 GHz because of the NB voltage. I've seen people with other boards pushing the NB voltage past 1.3 but in my bios when I go over 1.2v, the numbers turn red. Should I push it past that? Considering that my NB heatsink is very very hot?
3. I attached a small 50mm cooler on top of the nb heatsink. At that point the heatsink gets warm but not like before.. It was untouchable and it hurt my fingers if i held them there longer than 3 seconds
Do not get confused with cpu/nb and nb.. they aren't the same. The voltage you should be raising is cpu/nb not the nb on the motherboard. The cpu/nb is inside the cpu chip, which is the one good to like 1.4v.

You shouldn't need to raise the nb voltage much if at all.

I never touch NB voltage. Only CPU-NB VID voltage. You shouldnt need to change the NB.

Friend of mine has same board as me and a X4 620 (2.6ghz locked multi). He's running 3.6ghz (so 13x 277 bus) and hasn't touched the NB voltage.

If you're really worried about the NB temp. Grab some nylon screws and washers, thermal paste, and take the NB heatsink off. Then clean it up, paste it, screw it down.

That's the thing. If i take down NB voltage, it won't even boot. That's the thing that holds me down. I've read on other threads that CPU-NB VID doesn't make a difference above 1.4 so yeah, I don't plan on pushing it further.
post #1646 of 3278
CPU-NB VID is part of the CPU itself. Not the NB or the NB heatsink.

Maybe you just need more vcore. Still dont think you should need to mess with NB.

Hi everyone yhis is my first post so i should say hi first.

i have a FX8350 i am not having much fun overclocking with a Gigabyte 990X rev1 the voltage will not increase
I have set it in Bios 1.4 but in CPUz show only 1.32 only get 4530 stable at that voltage
I am using beta bios F14b i have tried F13 and F12

Thats normal with all Gigabyte board with no LLC ( rev 1.0). U should expect a vdrop of about 0,07 or 0,08V and under load more vdroop of 0,03V. So if u want say 1.4V under load. U should put in BIOS about 1.5V.

just installed AMD Bulldozer X8 FX-8150 but sytem not seeing all memory? it says 3gb 1.98gb usable? ihave a GA-970A-D3 was working fine with the old quad core?
