Believe in HWiNFO!!! lol. It has never steered me or many other AMD users wrong. Why does it show 13C at idle? Because that's the way AMD intended their temperatures to be reported.

Mine currently shows 8C, my room is exactly 20C. AMD's temp is not a true core sensor, it's more of a package sensor based on some algorithm that doesn't get accurate results until load, +30C. Loads temps are the only important temp anyways so it's fine.

My temps are believable mine idles at around 23 degrees, my temp's sorted out when I locked my GHZ

Yeah idle temps are way off.
Around 30-40c they are said to be displaying accurate.

Anyone have tips on cooling TMPIN/Northbridge and mosfets on M70A-D3P board? My temps are high, may add AS5 to northbridge heatsink instead but may still not be enough, anyone have apicture edited of what mosfets/chips i should put heatsinks on? and would as5 be save on it aswell.... thank you smile.gif

Don't add AS5, it's conductive. People need to stop buying AS5 it stopped being a great TIM like 5+ years ago. Also none of those TMPIN sensors are for mosfet or NB. Only Rev 4.0 has mosfet sensors (PMBus IR...)

I have personally tested this extensively. My mosfets and NB are watercooled. Didn't have any affect on TMPIN sensor readings.

TMPIN0 is an ambient mobo temp. TMPIN1 & 2 relate directly to CPU core temp. When CPU core increases so does TMPIN1 & 2. If you're ambient temps drop significantly so does TMPIN 0, 1, 2. 1 & 2 drop because this also drops your CPU core temp.

Yea, I know I'm ditching my AS5. I was going to use something else with this new cpu/mobo, but, I had forgotten to order it. Will most likely be replacing the AS5 soon.

I've also noticed that it seems to end up with worse temps when that "cure" time is done. At least from what I've seen.

True. But I still have 3 or 4 of the little tubes of it here, and it definately beats the stock paste or any paste i get with a branded fan cooler.. thanks for the info on the sensors and ambient temp. I think il just put a fan by the nb proximity.

Hi.

Im so sorry that I didnt care to read all 271 pages here, but I have the Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3, and I have owned a lot of motherboards, but THIS crap, is the worst board ever.

How can there be a owners club, to something horrible like this? Im going to buy the Asus Sabertooth now, and when it arrives, Im going to remove the gigabyte board, destroy it with a rock or something and post a picture here.

I use it with a amd fx 8350 and i have the VapoChill LS to cool it. I know vapochill can cause the motherboard to behave strangely especially to start the system and to shut down the system, but again, this gigabyte board takes the cake. Every time I change something in bios and save and quit, it shuts down the computer. I have used the vapochill on many many motherboards, since I bought it in 2006 or 2007, and the favourite motherboard was the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert 939. That board I actually overclocked until it died, and then they sent me a new board, for free smile.gif

Is anybody else here, having problems with their boards?

How can people be happy with this board? It my worst buy ever....

Kindly, regards

Daniel....

Where you messed up, is pairing a 8350 with that board. I have a 8320, that I bought with a 970a-ud3, at first I was going to get the 6300, but, the 8320 was on sale, and it ends up the combo 8320/mobo sucked. I moved to a 990fxa-ud5, and it worked great with my 8320 once the bios was updated.

I now have the 970a-ud3 in my ol'ladys system, with a fx-6300, and the board works great. No throttling at all.

I'd still suggest moving to the sabertooth. I've got a Asus hero for my 4770k, and I'm really loving all of the overclock friendly features it has. (Direct to bios is a del key saver)

Anyway, for future reference, being a A-hole doesn't get you far in the help department.

Sadly, Im a born *******.

Thanks for answer. How come, the 8350 dont work properly on the motherboard?
When I was checking for new motherboard, I checked cpu also, and found two new cpu. FX9370 and FX9590
But the info on them, was crazy. : FX 9590 Speed 4.7 GHz TDP :220 W. Is that for real?
I think my vapochill only handles max 200 w.

Any ideas why the computer shuts down, when Im saving and quitting in bios, and even when I restart my computer, it just shut it down.
