VRM Temp?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My GA-MA790XT-UD4P's VRMs are in the 60-65c range under load. Should I be worried? Time to buy a water block for the VRMS? tongue.gif

Specs:

960T Unlocked to 1600T @ 4.125ghz w/ 1.488v.

60c-65c is absolutely within safe range ! you don't need to worry. Most VRMs can tolerate up to 85c-90c. (Some can live at 90c to 100c) I mean 90c can be considered as maximum operating temp. After 90c MOSFETs start to shorten current supply to the CPU by a huge margin which may lead to certain death of VRM.

Excellent, thank you for the info. I should add, I the VRM heatsink has a 90mm fan blowing on it, as well as a 120mm fan blowing air around the water block / ram and chipset heatsink.

+ rep.
