Just saying :-) since there are others out there with similar high temps, can anyone else try this and report back their findings?
My thoughts
#0 Board/case temp
#1 NB or VRM temp
#2 CPU socket temp

Yes I think you're right. But shouldn't it be changed in the first post then, where it says that no1 i cpu and no2 is vrm?

Hello.
I have
Gigabyte GA-990XA 10g bios
8gb KingMax Nano Gaming RAM 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
Procesor AMD Phenom II X2 60 Black Edition 3300MHZ
Fortron Saga II 500

Can anyone help to do some basic oc on this processor and maybe see my memory to 1600mhz and not 1333
I tried to unlock but it s not stable.
Thx.

Anyways, I haven't spent a whole lot of time messing with the BIOS, as this is my backup pc, however, I haven't been able to find a modifier for the PCIe voltage. Is this the same as the PCIe clock speed? My ASRock 1155 board doesn't have an option in the bios to modify the voltage, but MSI Afterburner allows me to modify the voltage. Is AB dependent on the GPU more then the MB itself? I have a 6770 in the 16x PCIe slot. I enabled the option to unlock the voltage in MSI AB and still nothing.

Thanks in advanced!

You're mistaken. You don't overclock GPUs in BIOS. You DO NOT want to mess with PCIe clockspeed 99.9% of the time.
Do all your GPU OC'ing via OC utility like Afterburner or Sapphire Trixx etc...

I'm not talking about overclocking the gpu itself, rather the PCIe voltage itself. My old M2N-sli deluxe had PCIe voltage in the BIOS. I'm asking because I can't increase the voltage of my 6770 in MSI AB or the catalyst center.

Hrm. I'm mistaken at what you wanted. However, you're looking to increase GPU voltage so you can be stable at higher clock speeds right? If that is the case, then I'm not sure if PCIe voltage increases that voltage.
post #856 of 3278
Is there any reason why MSI:AB would unlock the voltage for my 480's but not my 6770? Is there maybe a lock in the GPU BIOS or something?

A little help here guys. I recently bought a 970a-ud3 and the thing will not boot from a flash drive. All I know is it has to be bios related because I can boot from a flash drive using Plop Boot Manager, but that is the only way I have successfully done it. Anyone have any ideas?

I think OP is correct:
TMPIN0 = Motherboard (chipset) temp
TMPIN1 = CPU temp
TMPIN2 = VRM temp

I use3 different Temp sensor programs, Core Temp, HWTemp, and Speed fan
All my findings are that TMPIN1 is the CPU or Socket core.
I have read many statements in this thread and others that have used an infrared sensor to verify that the TMPIN2 is the north bridge
Example Post #700 in this thread:

Right now the ambient temp is 21C (70F), with the North Bridge reading 28C, CPU at 28C and the system at 34C.

I have a friend who is a firefighter and he has a heat infrared gun and i will have him come over and test my system and i will try to post pics.
I will do it durring a stress test as i have a huge difference between 1 and 2 on my tests

Oh and any one having throttling issues and everything is turned off in bios here is the fix:
Install AMD Overdrive
Go to the Cpu section and click Turbo Core
Enable Turbo Core Control then Push OK
Then hit apply
then Open and Disable Turbo Core Control then push OK
then OK to exit AMD Overdrive.
post #860 of 3278
OK I just installed AMD overdrive. It shows the same temps in TMPIN2 and CPUcores. TMPIN1 is cooler.
