GA-990FXA-UD3, northbridge overheating?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey I recently built a brand new computer. Got a couple of games but got constant freezes only with bfc2 within like 30-40 minutes. I first thought it was the game but just to make sure, i kept up hw monitor and noticed that my north bridge (i think that's what it is, its labeled TMPIN2) is at 53C.

the specs for my computer:
mobo: GA-990FXA-UD3
ram:8gb Sniper-Gskill-1600
cpu: phenom II x4 955 3.2ghz
gpu: 6950 Flex 2gb
HD: 1 TB
CPU - heatsink: Thermaltake Frio
Case: Antec 902

I too am experiencing the same problem. When the MB is cold, there is no problem booting, loading the OS and all that jazz. But when the MB has been turned on for a little while, like 20 minutes or so, booting is hit and miss, going into the BIOS and just moving the cursor around is slow to non-responsive and when actually running Win7, the damn thing hangs to the point of having to do a hard reset. Even then it won't boot afterwards, without letting it cool down for a while.

My MB is running at all factory presets, no OC at all. I also have a very good cooling system on the CPU, hopefully that rules out CPU failure?

With that said, I'm bringing my MB in for an exchange today.

As per the temperature issues with the NB tmp, check out our 990xa thread, we are discussing the temp sensors, and it seems TMPIN2 is actually the VRM so those temps are perfectly normal and safe.

I have the same board and the Northbridge heatsink gets VERY hot in a case with supreme airflow. I am kinda unhappy about it, but unless they recall the board, I think I may just get a copper heatsink and fan for it instead. I don't know what else to say because honestly, I cannot afford for my main rig to be down for the time it takes to RMA this thing. :/

Well, I will post a new reply to this thread if/when I find a new HSF/HS for this hawt tamale....lol thumb.gif

Same here, same board, and I have ATCS 840 with 3x230mm fans, and 3x120mm fans, airflow is not a problem, but NB gets hot, VRM too, but I don't have stability problems so I don't care too much, I put one 80mm fan and it helps a little...

Your temperatures are fine you are just reading them backwards.

TMPIN0: Northbridge chipset
TMPIN1: CPU core
TMPIN2: VRM mosfet

I have the ga-990xa-ud3. Basically the same motherboard layout.

If you want I did a guide over at the 990xa/970 motherboard thread. I re-did the thermal paste with MX-4 and dropped the temps by a good margin.
