Asus Rampage III Extreme Temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I picked up this MB an I7 930 used but i am concerned with the idle Temps.The Cores seem High for Idle and the NB\SB.I set the bios to default.I have read alot about the problems with IOH and ICH Temps so i will do the necessary actions for that but do the Cores always run like that or is it a Bios setting.Sorry i have always been Amd so i am not to familiar with Intel.

Build:
Asus Rampage III Extreme
I7 930
G.Skill Triple CH Ram 6G
Cooler V8
PSU Corsair 850w
Case Corsair 800D
Evga 260Gtx sc
All Fans Installed in Case.

This is just a Build i put together with what i had laying around,I will improve on it if the used Mb turns out ok.

That looks about right to me.

I have the same board, and that gen of i7 does run quite hot. Regarding the NB and SB specifically, some people have removed the stock heatsinks and replaced the thermal paste on them (it seems like ASUS put some really cheap crud on them originally) and saw much better temperatures, so that is what I would do. smile.gif

Since I have mine in a loop I'm too lazy to re-TIM my NB/SB lol

did you use the replacement IOH HSF with the fan?
I did...noticed a slight decrease in temps, an improvement never the less...
