Amd Fx 8120 heat issues - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Sounds like thermal throttle. First hand experience with this board being no good for the 8xxx fx cpu. Check the vrm temp,be listed as systin or something above cputin which is socket temp in hw monitor whilst under load and only use core temp to see the throttle. Core temp is not really relative, On that mobo your cputin will be round 20c above core causing thermal throttle well before core tj max. Although with no oc and stock volts its odd to say the least.

At stock you're getting these temps? And I thought I had a hot chip.

Is your PSU blowing air into the top or bottom of the case?

How about your graphics card?

What case do you have? How many fans, and what's the configuration.

Your Vcore voltages are normal, at stock you can even go lower usually. I was stable at 1.26. How much voltage is your NB getting?

About all I can think about. I have no idea why your rig would be SO hot. My 8120 got pretty hot when around 80-100% load. Stuck an H100 on it and now the thing stays much cooler. Granted I can't pump 1.4 volts or so at it or it'll still be a bit hot.

Here are some pics of my case





All the fans are positione correctly they blow air up

Do you have any case fans? Looks like the only thing that's going on is you have the two cpu fans pointing up. Is there a fan in front blowing in or anything? I don't want to say you're getting ridiculous temps because your case is warming up inside but it's possible.

Yes it is in front the intake ithink its called ,1 fan is taking air fromt the front of the case and the rest blows it up , isn`t that the best way ?

So you have 1 fan taking in from the front. And the CPU is blowing it up out of the case. No other fans? I'd recommend attaching at least one more fan to blow in air and one more to pull it out the back. It looks like the cables in your HD bay are blocking the front intake fan, so not a ton of cool air is going to get through. Your PSU and Graphics card are expelling warm air down into the case. That air is being pulled up through the heatsink of your CPU. If you're getting warm air to cool a cpu heatsink, you won't see nearly the results you want. You said you tried mounting your H100 and it didn't do anything?

And if the front intake fan is stock, it's likely that it's a terrible fan that barely moves air around. So weak fan+cables in way+warm air from psu and GPU+moving through already warm heatsink = Poopie cooling.

The intake is irrelevant, the intake fan of cpu can get enough air via holed side cover. The cpu temp which is usually called Socket Temp is bad. Are you on the latest bios ? Could be a bios quirk or bad mobo sensor. Some mobos have weird bios that changes cpu reading. On some models, people have to use a particular version not to encounter problems like these.

PS: You are not alone on this problem btw. I had a quick search on web and there are some 970 and 990fx users having this issue. Did you try Asrock Support http://www.asrock.com/support/tsd.asp

I used the link that you gave me but they autmaticli send me that auto emails with local dealers and things like that i dont think they will do anything

The temperature listed above is the VRMS of the board of to the left of the motherboard, There is a lot of voltage running through and these must be cooled properly, place a 80mm fan tied down with elastic bands, or clips onto the VRMS to cool them down. If they get any hotter there is a chance of system failure and they will pop. Be wary.
