GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H Bad Temp Sensor?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently using this motherboard with a H60 cooler mounted to an i7 2600K no OC. I am idling at 40°C. With my old P67 mobo, i was idling at 28°C with a 4.5GHz OC. I have checked out the fans on my H60 and they seem to be running, even the pump. Something tells me either my CPU is done with, or the MOBO is lying to me. Because i actually played Battlefield 3 with it, my temp went up to 98°C, but my fps was fine. The game was not throttling, at least i didn't notice any. Tried it with Black Ops II, constant 144fps with v-sync on. Again, no throttling, yet my temps were really scary. I have reapplied thermal paste at least 7 times between yesterday when i got the board, and today when i continued to work on it. Please welp!

Does frequency drop to idle speeds? That could explain higher idle temps. Also did you try to use other program like Real Temp? Can't see what version of Core Temp you're running maybe it's too old for UD3H.

Now my USB3.0 ports are causing my display driver to crash. When ever i plug in all my devices to the rear, my display goes out when i get to the windows login screen.

If different BIOS versions don't do anything, I would RMA the board.

Already in the process. Looking for another board to buy, not interested in this one what so ever.
