Cheap MSI MB getting really hot temps

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well just got my little upgrade from E8400 to FX 6100 as well as changing to the cheapest possible FX series supporting MB. Motherboard is a MSI 760GM-P21, cheapest option for me. Everything went fine and running really good, but one thing that scares me is that one of MB temps are getting to 85C+ under load. Is that just a faulty sensor or is that temp normal? Im adding a screenshot of it on idle TMPIN1 (48C!)

Well, what is TMPIN1? It means different things on different chip sets. Some utilities like Aidia 64 will properly label what it is, but they arn't always reliable.

Tell me what TMPIN1 is first and i'll tell you if that is good or bad.

If that's a MOSFET, it can be good up to 175 C.
Northbidges typically are good up to 105 C.
Southbridges are typically good up to 90C.

It'd be plausible that it is the VRM temperature sensor, or it could be chipset. Not sure. True though, that motherboard with its weak 3+1 phase on a failure prone design is not a good pusher for 6. You should lock cores until you can have this board exchanged for safety reasons.
