Motherboard Temps (TMPIN)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

quick question I've never been able to find a definite answer on....

The TMPIN0 - 1 - 2 readings, and "safe" temps....?

338

As you see, with a 24C case temp, the TMPIN temps seem to get pretty high. I'm told TMPIN2 is ambient air temp? how? ok?

My only guess for TMPIN0 and TMPIN1 are MOSFET temps and Southbridge temp...

Now my MSI P67A-C43 (B3) motherboard didn't come with MOSFET heatsinks... I'm planning on putting custom mosfet heatsinks on them over my Christmas break. When benching, I can easily touch and hold my fingers down on the MOSFETS without burning them. Yea, I can tell they're pretty dang warm but not hot.... So is that ok? Should I be worried?

Thanks guys! I know I'll get some good answers really quick on here! Always good help!

if you go into your bios and view the temps there it will actually tell you what those temps are, for example it may say

CPU 30 C
System 28C
Northbridge 24C


CPU will be Tmpin 1
System will be tmpin 2
and Northbridge will be tmpin 3

I don't know what would be safe temps but I do know MSI is know for there Mosfets to melt, so I would defiantly cover them with heatsinks, also from the looks of it its looks like a 4+1 phase board, so I would be careful with overclocking, maybe get a ASUS board like the ASUS P8H67-M PRO/CSM for $115 ish thats just my two cents wink.gif
