I just found this:

Could this help combined with a fan splitter?
Note, that I am not looking to overclock this system, just to get it stable.

Thats for the northbridge, but its your VRMs that are the problem.

These are located to the left of your CPU socket.

So the only option I have is to either downclock/disable core(s) or get another fan blowing right at VRMs/chipset?

Hmm... I have a msi board, and I don't think there is a temperature sensor for VRMs - only the motherboard and CPU. Can I just check the temperature of the VRMs using a thermometer? Where are the VRMs?

It's a MSI G41M-P26.

By the way, based on this scheme orientation:

700

The VRMs are located below CPU? (don't mind that arrow)

I don't think your VRM's are overheating running stock speeds and 1.35v on the CPU, unless you have terrible case cooling or high ambient temps. The temp you are worried about is probably your chipset temp. Please fill out your system specs, along with the exact model of your motherboard and CPU. It does matter if you are running a dual core or a 6 core. Any advice without that information will just be general. There are 22 MSI 880G boards listed on Newegg.

125w cpu on a 95w motherboard and stressing it with Prime, with a tower cooler.

My specs:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 (4 cores) + CM Hyper TX3 EVO cooler
MB: MSI 880GMS-E35
2x 4Gb Corsair DDR 1333Mhz
Corsair CX500 PSU
GeForce 460 GTX
+ 1 Silent Wings 92mm fan running in exhaust mode (back)
The CPU fan is blowing in the same direction as case fan.

Everything is stock without any OC. I have a mini tower so there aren't a lot of room and so the air flow is an issue. But this seems to affect only that particular part/sensor.

Look's like he is using this board http://www.msi.com/product/mb/880GMS-E35.html#/?div=CPUSupport
1 92mm fan is not going to cut it. You need a set of these VRM cooler,since it seems you have a 125w CPU.

also a 2nd CPU fan with a Halo frame will help keep the VRM's cool,like this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103083

Can you post a link to your case?
You can use a molex to 3 pin adapter for powering extra fans

If your willing to stress it again Try placing your exhaust fan directly on your Northbridge (labelled AMD 880g in the pic) and see if the temp drops. Then try placing that fan blowing on the VRM's area.

Still need to know his case cooling. 1 92mm fan is not going to cut it.

Notice how the phenom II x4 965 isnt listed on the support list? Im getting my information directly from the OP which has his HWMonitor info on it.

Do this and we will have a much better idea of what exactly the problem is. thumb.gif
