Amd cooling issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got a problem with my amd settup, my motherboard keep getting high on HeavyStress Test, like really high
I've launch a stress test, testing my cpu and ram, and the motherboard ran at 75 degree after 4 minute, and my cpu went to 39 degree

Here is my build:
Amd 8350 overclocked at 4.3Ghz without changing voltage (H40 liquid cooler)
970A-G46 msi motherboard
32Gb ddr3 1333hz ram
2x Gtx660 superclocked+
1100W Apevia Warlock PSU
2TD HDD
1 SSD of 120gb

Stable CPU: 26 Degree
Stable Motherboard: 40 degree

High Stress test CPU: around 37-40 degree
High Stress test Motherboard: over 70 degree

So i dont know what going on, i got 2 small fan pushing on the NB and 5 fan and those push alot of air., so my airflow is pretty well.
My CPU is stable at 26 degree, so i think its pretty good for amd.

Is this a motherboard issue, and what could i do to improve cooling?
I know Homemade water cooling would be the best, but it's expensive and i dont want to spend for this.

Thanks Guys!

Your mobo isn't the best; MSI skimped on proper VRM power phase allotment, and cooling. Did you touch the northbridge voltage at all?

I didn't touch it, setting is at (auto)
Ya that what i was thinking, but could its be a power supply issue?

Because i wanted PSU with 900+ but didn't wanted to afford a 200+$ psu so i picked one cheap.

Your PSU is extreme overkill as far as wattage is concerned. You would have been more than fine with a good quality 500W gold rated unit. I'm not familiar with the Ape via PSU's, but I don't think it is the culprit. Since you haven't touched the north bridge voltage, get better cooling for it and see how that works. If that fails, just going to have to accept the temps, or get a new mono.

I agree that it is the cooling on your motherboard to blame. MSI AM3+ boards weren't designed with the 83x0 series in mind and the 125W TDP coming across that board is putting out some serious heat.
