post #221 of 3278
I was reading a forum http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=6042.0
and it seems that another guy is having these same temps when he is running prime95 his temps were even hotter than myself he was getting.

TMPIN0:42c
TMPIN1:58c
TMPIN2:67c

So I guess these boards just run hot it seems odd. Has anyone taken off the north bridge heat sink and, check the contact between the thermal tape they use on the chip to see if it makes good contact. I'm thinking of taking off mine and using some NT-H1 thermal paste, to see if that helps, drop temp.

Edit: after reading the GA-990fxa-ud3 forum on overclock.net. A lot of people are having really high temps when reading from HWmonitor one guys TMPIN2 was at 90c so I'll just keep this board until they release a rev 2.0 and buy that one.

I made another study: decreasing Phenom II X4 CPU voltage from stock 1.314v to 1.186v lowered TMPIN2 sensor temp by ~3-5C in idle, so I think it's deffinitely VRM sensor. On the hand, setting 12cm fan directly to VRM radiator didn't make any victory - temperature was the same as w/o fan.

OK so if TMPIN2 is VRM, I could see that since when I changed my setting from 4.0ghz CPU to stock the temp did drop. Would TMPIN1 be the north bridge because I don't think TMPIN0 is the north bridge, not at the temps I am reading them to touching the heat sink because the heat sink was a lot hotter than 28c. I would still like to hear from other people on what the temps that HWmonitor is reading, like which is really which.

TMPIN0: motherboard sensor ???
TMPIN1: north bridge or vrms ???
TMPIN2: vrms or north bridge ???

What do you plan on doing with the old board then?! Any way to exchange it w/out loosing money?

What if the Tmpin0 is northbridge aka motherboard temp, and Tmpin1-2 is Cpusocket/vrm, it would explain why they are both high, following cpu temps. At ~60deg C, VRM is still in OK temp range, gota remember we are using 125W OC'ed cpu. VRMs are designed to be hot, any DC-DC regulator does.

@XD, i assume these low rds on VRMs are switching regulators (efficient, slightly colder, less accurate), rather than linear regulators (not efficient and hot, but more accurate)?

If TMPIN0 is the north bridge why is it getting so hot? I ran prime95 touched the north bridge heat sink and it was hot to the touch while hwmonitor was telling me it was only TMPIN0: 28c. Would 28c be hot too the touch?

What temperatures are considered just too hot to touch, comfortably hot, luke warm, tepid, cool to the to

Maybe?

I'm going to buy a digital thermometer and check the heat sink temps and see which one is which that HWmonitor is reading once and for all.

TMPIN1 should be the "socket temp"...
post #230 of 3278
I know this is off topic, but I looked and looked for a digital thermometer, with a probe on it. So I could read the temperatures, from the heat sinks on the motherboard. I looked on Canadian tire, home depot, princess auto, radio shack, the source. All I could find were multimeter, with build in temperature reads or BBQ thermometers, with a metal probe that you insert into the meat that you are cooking. So would I be able to use a BBQ digital temperature probe would that give me good readings.

Would something like this work?

Or if you guys know where I could buy a good digital temperature meter, that would be great.
