Since changing the bios to AHCI for my ssd to get best read/write speeds, everytime I wanted to get into the bios the screen would post to the AHCI immu screen and post the hard drives that were connected, and wouldn't allow me to get into bios at all just lock up the screen. So by trying different usb ports in the rear I/O. It just happened to allow me to enter bios when the keyboard was plugged into the usb 3.0 port.

Question are the temps for the north bridge seem a little high (picture below)

Thanks for the detailed steps. I will try out those steps to confirm AHCI+USB3 fixes things. I had my USB3 controller disabled, so I never used those ports... hmmm.

What about your Northbridge temps, what are you getting for those. Wondering if those are a little high.

They are, that is very strange. you have an amazing case with super high airflow. I dont have exact numbers, but im sure it was around 40-50

My TMPIN0 in HWmonitor (or "Motherboard" sensor according to AIDA64) reads 34C. Of course I'm idling but in retrospect that is pretty good. I am assuming that TMPIN2, as with my old 790X board, is the VRMs; they are at 36C, and load at roughly the same temp as TMPIN1 (socket).

EDIT: During folding the northbridge temp remains pretty much unchanged. The VRM temp climbs slightly behind the CPU temp but loads at the same temp as socket temp - around 50C, fairly safe, and good considering they are passive cooled.
Of course, after noticing the loose chipset and MOSFET heatsinks, I spent some time pushing down on both with both thumbs just to ensure tightness tongue.gif

So TMPIN2 is the vrm's and not the north bridge?? If so why is yours at 50c and mine at 61c with prime95 on blend test??

Edit: CPUID monitor reads for me.

idle, room is fairly warm.

TMPIN0:27c
TMPIN1:32c
TMPIN2:48c

prime95 blend test.

TMPIN0:27c
TMPIN1:44c
TMPIN2:61c-65c

when prime95 cores reach between 48-53c just applied arctic silver 5 so I need to let it cure still, but are my VRMs TMPIN2 getting too hot. I made sure they are seated down well.

The northbridge/chipset temperature should not increase by much (if at all) during a stress test. TMPIN1 refers to the socket/CPU temperature. Your MOSFET heatsinks may be somewhat more loose or case airflow is not as good. At 61-65C you are fairly hot but far from being prone to failure. I gave my MOSFET heatsink a good downward push with two thumbs for a couple of minutes, after it actually came loose from the MOSFETs during installation. They load same temp as socket temp, just like on my old 790X. The MOSFET temps have no direct relation to the CPU temps though.

It's hard to say if I have bad air flow through my case, I have the haf-932 but I took out those 230mm fans and put (4) 120mm cooler master 69 cfm fans on the side for intake, (1) 120mm fan on the rear for exhaust, and (3) 120mm fans on the top for exhaust. Plus with the noctua NH-D14 the middle 140mm fan sits right at the same level as the VRM's so my cooling should me enough (I think). I also pushed down on the VRM cooler for atleast a minute. I have the computer overclocked to 4.0ghz but with low volts only 1.400 and the cpu-nb at 2600mhz at only 1.200 volts so it's not too much higher than stock volts. Mostly the VRM's stay between 45-55 when I play games only when I do stress test do they jump between 60c+. So do you think they could fry at these temps?

Can you run OCCT Linpack 15 min test, post the resulting graph folder (zip), with all the temperature sensors enabled in options. Ill post mine when I get my desktop back up and running, its in pieces right now.
