Computer fails to start but ultimately does. - Page 8

post #71 of 77
My vrm temps also rise quickly. I'm using 1.4425v for 4.5GHz. My bios only does .02v increments though. It would not pass prime with only 1.4225v, but it did pass ibt iirc.

I pass prime95 for 8+ hrs if the ambient is low enough or I use my box fan with the side panel off. Right now I "think" its because of the CPU overheating protection in the mobo, but I haven't confirmed it yet. Only had the CPU for a week smile.gif.

So far this is what I've got. Does your vrms heat upto 72c? Mine does frown.gif

Yes, mine have hit that high, although off the top of my head I'm not recalling what they're normal load temp is right now. I'd have to check tonight when I get home from work. I want to say somewhere in the low-mid 60's. Just make sure that there is airflow directed at them and you should be good to go. I have two top mounted 120mm fans for exhaust in my case, and with both of them revved up it does a decent job of pulling air over the mobo, but I'm thinking about adding a large fan on the case side panel to blow down on to the motherboard (case already has mounts for it though, so it will be easy).

Your CPU load temp is starting to get a bit high though, but as of right now I wouldn't go out and panic about it, I just don't know how much more I'd push it on that cooler/ambient temp setup.

And your board is fine. Its one of the ones that is listed in the AMD motherboard list as one that is actually recommended for overclocking.

And from your other thread it looks like I have a new target to shoot for with my cinebench score. Right now I'm at 5.2 IIRC. But like I said, I've been having temp issues, so I might have been throttling, so maybe I need to try it out again with the box fan blowing on it just to see if it was temps that caused my "low" score.

Good luck thumb.gif.

So 55c would be too high as my max cpu temp. What usually is your max cpu Temp while stress testing? Nice to know somebody who has the same setup. In cpu z no matter what i set my ram timings to in the bios its always showing the same ram timings but in the bios its fine. Cpuz doesn't show it right. Do you also have this problem??

55c is "getting" too high for a CPU in my opinion. I really prefer to keep them under 50c, but that could just be me. CPU world specs for the CPU don't actually list a hard max temp for it (which is weird), but it does say to try to keep it under 60, and that running it around 70c is "not recommended".

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%20FX-6300.html

I've been in the 47-52c range for the most part, although I've seen spikes of up to 57c (I don't have AC, so my ambient changes the temps a lot).

I haven't tried CPU-z actually. Have you tried finding a newer/different version of CPUz? I'd go with what the BIOS says if it were me.

Yeah I have tried a different version but the same problem. frown.gif. While gaming my temps are around 48c.

UPDATE- While stress testing I opened up cpu z and saw that my ram timings were right and that they downclock or something when on idle mode.
