Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Overclocking temperatures (CPU and NB)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My cpu under 4 hours of stress testing hits around 66-68c, so under realistic stresses, my cpu will be at around 50-60% load and probably around 60-63c area is my assumption. My northbridge is like 80-82c... not sure if it would rise more.

I am using HWMonitor / Core temp to monitor.

My CPU is a FX 8120 (Attempting to overclock to 4.0)
Motherboard - Gigabyte 78lmt-usb3

Are these temperatures safe? I really cannot afford a fan, even if some are dirt cheap, all of my money is currently tied up, would you reccomend me to not overclock at high on those temps? I am on stock cooling. It is currently at 3.6ghz and my cpu is around 50c or so under load maybe slightly more, and my NB is around 60c under load such as playing bf4.


Also, if the 80c northbridge is fine, what kind of life time am I looking at?

I would stick at your current settings until you can scrape together the cash for a fan.

That NB temperature is a little high at 80C.

If they still make those antec spotcools, one would be perfect for you I think.

Yes they do!
