PWMIC location on a MSI K8n Neo4? help

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have some extra ram sinks and i'd like to use them for my PWMIC on my board but im having trouble finding it. I see alot of info on DFI boards but that doesn't help me. I know the general area is closest to the plugs and jacks and opposit to the DIMM slots if you where to consider the cpu the folcrum of the motherboard. My rig it watercooled so I'm not sure if a good supply of air is getting over there.

I can take a picture if it might help!

ok this is all i can get on sort notice. but check just left of the CPU and thats is the area i think it is. But finding the actual chip is the hard part. I'll try to take a closer pic for ya.

I am guessing it is this one.. If you have any extra vga ram sink place it on the chip with a lil as5 and see if your temp drops. I just had the same problem today and solved it this way...

naw when i did this test i used a little 80mm fan to see if it was the right one first. and the results are strange.

before the core temp hit peak at 42C and the case temp was 35C most of the time.

Now the core temp is still load 42C but the case temp went down to 31C and held there for 10-15min of prime65

hey case temps are nice but i was going for the core temp..
