Gigabyte 990fxaud3 NB getting Toasty...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, my NB is at 3000mhz @1.35v w/ ram overclocked to 1600mhz @ 1.65v 7-8-7-22...


NB feels mighty toasty.

If I affix the stock AMD cooler for the 1090 to the NB, will it help stabilize temps?

And, if I do, will it be able to clock the NB higher?

Just an idea!

According to Gigabyte the NorthBridge chipset on the motherboard is safe all the way up to 80c. For the most part 990FX NB's run on the warmer side. use Hardwaremonitor or OpenhardwareMonitor to check the actual NB temp, it will be listed as TIMPIN02. TIMPIN0 is the CPU, and 1 is the "system" temp.

The NB your overclocking is not the actual NB on the motherboard, your overclocking the CPU/NB it is inside the CPU chip, and as you raise the voltage on said CPU/NB the temp of the CPU Core temp will rise in turn. For the most part you want to get your CPU/NB to 3000, after that its all for benchmarking and e-peen. The voltage you are save to run though the CPU/NB is identical to the CPU voltage. The stock cooler WILL NOT help you overclock, throw it away, invest in a nice air cooler if you want to push your CPU farther. I suggest you try for the 4.0-4.2Ghz and 3000CPU/NB range for best day to day performance, if you want to bench and such, go as far as you can possible go!

EDIT:Check out the Mobo club for the Gigabyte 990FXA boards. Loads of info there on these boards and tons of helpful people with lots of knowledge about these boards and how to overclock on them. I'm a member:)
