post #571 of 3278
Will try to keep the side case of the cabby open and c if there is any diff. In temp. And also try to lower the core voltage to 1.45. And c wot haps.
Is there any other way to increase the air flow?
Since my room temp is 30'c, is the idle temp of 38'c ok?

hello, i got a ga-990xa-ud3 board a few weeks ago, right now running F8 bios, my concern is that the tmpin0 reading from HWMonitor is around 40 degrees Celsius when the comp's idle, my room temp's around 20, cpu's idle at around 30 degrees, what seems to be the problem??? how can i fix?? i touch the northbridge heatsink with my hand, it's burning hot!! i see some of you have tmpin0 at around 20 degrees, how do you manage that?????

Tbh I stopped worrying about board temps a while ago.

The thermal pad they use on the stock heat sinks, doesn't transfer heat very well.

If you can increase you case air flow it would help a lot.

Take a look at the guide I did on my board. I dropped temperatures by a huge margin.

but before you did all that, your temp still under 30.
i just don't get it, i'm freezing in my room now, and cpu's at 30 which seems fine, but that tmpin0 is idle at 40, and yes, i touch the northbridge with my hand, very hot, which mean it does transfer heat fairly well

Sorry bout the away, guys. Real life hit me with really bad timing so I haven't been able to update for the last few.
Anyone tested the 990XA with the FX processor yet?

@czcdog,

Actually it means just the opposite. It's hot because the heat isn't being removed from the heat sink. I believe that tmpin0 is the VRMs, tmpin1 is the CPU and tmpin2 is the northbridge. I had the same problem because I use a CoolIt Systems R-120 for my CPU. The main drawback to any liquid cooling is that the CPU Cooler no longer provides any airflow for the NorthBridge or the VRMs. I managed to snugly install a 70mm fan from an unused cheap AMD CPU Cooler between the pump and the plastic knobs used to tighten the cooler, and let it blow over the NorthBridge and scatter off of the back of the video card. Now my NorthBridge temp pretty much mirrors the temp of the CPU.

VRM cooling is still not very good, but by increasing the CFM of the front fans, I'm able to limit the VRMs from exceeding 43C. What I need to do is remove the VRM heatsink and clean everything off, and replace the stuff it came with, with some Ceramique from Arctic Cooling. I'm also thinking of moving the pull fan to the outside of the case making the case the "meat" in a fan/radiator sandwich. I also plan to remove the grille-work on the back of the case, so the air will flow faster and quieter through the Radiator The inch I would gain inside the case would get the VRM Cooler more exposed to the case airflow. As it is right now, the front push fan hangs over the VRM heatsink. I have to remove the cooler to re-do the thermal stuff on the VRM heatsink anyway, so I thought that would be a good time to move the fan as well. I'll let you know how it works out.

Best Regards,
Russ

Giving up at 43C? These VRMs should be able to handle more than that.

xd_1771,

It's true, they can handle more than 43C, but I'm a person who believes that the less heat the better when it comes to electronics. The less heat, the longer the parts usually last I would much rather it have a temp of somewhere in the mid 30s. I prefer Scythe Slipstreams for case fans, and the Silverstone FN series for intakes.

Best Regards,
Russ
