how is ITE IT8721F too hot, IN MY RIG?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey

I'm getting some shutdowns due to too much heat, but I'm not entirely sure what's causing it, and I can't believe that this should really be happening to me in my rig.

So let me explain

I have a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard, an AMD 8120FX at stock settings, a Coolermaster Hyper TX3 EVO cpu cooler and a fractal design core 3000 case with 1 140mm fan and 2 120mm fans.

Somehow, I'm still able to overheat the ITE IT8721F chip and my system shuts down at 63 degrees celcius. The CPU reads 55 degrees max with HWINFO. Ambient temperature is about 30 degrees, but still - how can I not play a game of dota on a hot summer day without shutting down my system. That is ridiculous to me.

How can I troubleshoot this?

The ITE chip is just the legacy I/O and monitoring chip. I doubt it's getting hot itself.

Chances are the temperature you are referring to is a sensor connected to that chip, probably placed near the chipset or VRMs, and not the ITE chip itself.

It's just a serial port controller... you can just disable it in the BIOS if you're not using it.


A quick search of it reports a lot of temperature mis-readings due to it.
Once again...

You can usually isolate it to a temperature issue if you open your case and just have a house fan blowing over it. If it doesn't shut down when you do this, then it is a temperature issue and we can further troubleshoot it.

This typically isn't a good idea for 24/7 use especially in dry environments because of static, but is fine for testing.

Voltage is straight up regular voltage 1.4 max.

I thought it was a graphics chip or something based on my googles
