Hey dudes, so I recently purchased the z77 mpower and I really do like it although I am having an issue with it. That being that at load the temperature monitor on the board reads that it gets up to 69c.

I will admit my set up could be better (my case is 7 years old and I'm using whatever fans I can find from my old build/case -- be it 80mm or 120mm.) I just need advise! My cpu is the i7-3770 and I am not currently overclocking.

I signed up here just to ask sorry if I am intruding.


Thanks

Sounds like poor temps.. this is no result of the mobo..

I would examine your mount and possibly add more fans for better circulation.

What should I be looking for regarding the mounting?

depends on what cooler your using really.. hard to say.

 

 *I usually just take the cooler off completely and check the spread on the thermal paste.. this will confirm if you had any mount issues. If everything looks good.. just clean it off and follow the same steps you did last time for mounting. Honestly.. 69c full load is within reason depending on your cooler, and ambient temps as well as the program used to stress test.

 

ie- if you told me your using H100 and its 50F in your house and you stress tested with SuperPi.. then you have a real issues  :p

    if you told me your using stock cooler and its ~67F in your house, stress testing with Intel Burn test... I doubt there is anything wrong at all... temps are fine.

Ambient room temp is about 77C.

I am using stock cooler that comes with a 3770.

My cpu's temps are "in the norm" with it's stock heatsink.

What worries me is the temperature reading that's on the actual motherboard (the LED display) will shoot up to 70-73c when playing a video game like WoW on ultra.


I think I will re-apply my thermal paste and make sure my heatsink locks in good this time. (I do plan on upgrading to a better heatsink in the future.)


I just dont want to ruin my motherboard with temps like 70c (Im not even sure if it bad for it.)

*if its 77c in the house your in... leave now.. something is about to burst into flames !! wheee.gif

 

 So long as its only 77F ... your OK .. and temps are normal with stock cooling. cheers.gif .. tongue.gif

HAH yes, 77f my bad.

So you think the temperature reading is okay? My cpu is only around 60c when in a game but my motherboard temp reads 70-73c. I just want to confirm... you think that is okay?
