Help! CoreTemp Shutting Down PC Due To "Overheating"?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Bad news... I just finished installing my new HD 7970 and CoreTemp is now shutting down my PC due to "overheating" when it is not even overheating. Both the North Bridge and the South Bridge are burning hot after 1-2 seconds of touching them though... Does this have anything to do with my new HD 7970 install? If so do you think the new graphics card install is affecting my CPU overclock causing instabilities? Please help! I need to get my PC back on its feet! headscratch.gif

Edit: My Rig also seems to be running just a little slower than usual... But could this possibly be a driver related issue with my new card?

Alright I'll give that a try after I roll back drivers to a WHQL on my new card.

-What is your CPU load when playing games?

-What was your previous GPU?

-What is your TJ max in Coretemp?

-What kind of shutting down you have?


What I think is: The 7970 might be pulling more from the CPU, so its taxing more on the NB and SB and they are overheating You could also check PSU

Is the GPU properly seated? I know that's an odd question to ask, but I don't know if it would make the motherboard 'short' somehow, causing it to overheat.

Alright I've been working on answering these questions and hopefully this is enough info: (I completed all tests looping Heaven with all settings MAXED at 1920x1080)

-None of my cores are pegging to 100% on my FX-6100 OC'd to 4.0Ghz. The average core usage is around ~50-60% sometimes spiking into the 70% range on a few cores. But Heaven does not use all 6 cores so of course some we idling in the ~10-20% range.

- A Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti 1gb (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125363) OC'd to the max and 1000/2200mhz @1.125v.

- What is TJ Max?

-And it's an automatic Shutdown that I have enabled as a "failsafe" in CoreTemp. It is supposed to automatically power down my Rig if the CPU hits 60C which it never has... It maxes about 46-48C after running Prime95 for an extended period of time.

You can set the shutdown temp for CoreTemp in the Options -> Overheat Protection menu. If it is set to "Enable", check the temp that it's shutting down your system at. If you KNOW you shouldn't have shutdowns due to overheating, then disable the Overheat Protection (if it's enabled).

Yes I know this, but I was afraid to turn it off at first because I thought that it might be detecting an overheat at the NB or SB. But I don't think it has any way to monitor those temps. so I ruled that out. I've kept it enabled and it has not done it at all today, so maybe it was just a small glitch caused by me using driver sweeping and doing some registry cleaning? doh.gif
