I see lots of "TMPIN2 is NB temp" and some "TMPIN1" is NB temp. Either way, your VRMs are perfectly fine at 60c (if one of those is the VRM temp). Many MOSFET chips are rated for above 100c.

I noticed that with Prime95 running, the surface temp of the cooler (I have a temp gun) was about 55c while the Mosets were only about about 45c on the surface of the cooler. I can imagine the temp at the chip was closer to 60-65c. This was even after I took it off and re-greased it.

If the high temps scare you or are preventing you from overclocking, or if you just want to increase the lifespan of your motherboard, perhaps change out the stock cooler or add a fan to it. Keeping temps low goes a long way for longevity and performance. This is not to say that the only reason cheap boards arent good for overclocking is lack of cooling. There are other things that may be holding you back.

Something like this for your Northbridge will keep it cooler:

If you are planning on overclocking, you will need something on your mosfets as well. Something like this:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=54_197&products_id=26337

Honestly, just point a small fan at it for the simplest solution.


Before you jump in and buy either of these, make sure they will fit your mobo. I asume we are talking about the one in your sig rig. Looks like you have a longer northbridge cooler and you may have to do a little finagling to get 3rd party coolers to fit.

The northbridge heatsink/fan you linked, will that fit on that board?

Please help.
UPDATE: I kept gigabyte easy tune. AIDA and AMD overdrive open a long with HW Monitor and ran IBT. The cpu temps in those software pointed to TMPIN2 in HW Monitor. But that's hard to believe as it goes all the way up into the late 60's while mu core temps are in the late 40's. So now I'm ecen more confused frown.gif

Which CPU are you running in that board?

I'd go and get HWinfo64 (or 32 depending on OS) and use that - it can make it a lot easier to determine which temp is which. It's also a lot more regularly developed than HW monitor. Here is a link for ease : http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

ps. Some people have had drops in temps on NB by around 5-10°C from replacing the TIM with Hi quality non conductive thermal paste.

Something like this could work as well, a little targeted air flow makes all the difference : http://store.antec.com/Product/cooling-cooling_fan/spot-cool/0-761345-75018-9.aspx I use on on my VRMs atm, dropped my temp by 15-20°C thumb.gif

I don't know. I only used those links as examples. Research for a proper fit will need to be done.
