Yup, but as I said, they didn't do any good. lol

The strange thing though, before this board I had a Gigabyte with the 945G Pro chipset and I could OC my 805 to 3.5GHz with a mere 1.4125v. And then it would load at 52 degrees. Now on this Asus, I need 1.4875v for the same OC and it loads near 64 degrees.

My reason for getting the Asus is SLI (I was going to go SLI with my 7600GT) and the better memory options. The Gigabyte had zero memory options besides RAM dividers and it wouldn't even post with my RAM at 600Mhz (Stock it's 667...).

I have some theories on the higher temps. Firstly, a obvious one, the extra voltage I need. This board has some serious vdroop. Secondly, on the Gigabyte my Zalman was almost right on top of the rear exhaust fan in my case. Now it's a bit further away. I think those two things contribute to my high temps.

Just to add, when I had the Gigabyte, I would load near 60. Average 58. I then lapped my CPU which dropped my temps to 52, but now that advantage has been nullified with this board.

I am however planning to get a Zalman 9700 to replace this 9500. That should help temps along. Reason is, the 9500 isn't very hot... it's mild. It seems to not get the heat off the CPU very well. And it is seated 100%, I've reseated it many times.

Along with that, I'm also thinking of just getting one of the new Core 2 Duo's and putting the 805 in my folding PC.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the safe operating temperature for the MB? When I run PC probe, it warns me that the temperautre is too high (42 degrees c). What can I do to reduce this? By necessity, the PC is in the corner....

Thanks.

hey GUYS !!!!!!!

Talking of MB temperature.. i am very very headache now !!!!
Yesterday i stick in another 8800 GTS to make my RIG running SLI but my MB temp rise till 58C idle !!!!!! HELP !!!!


im still using stock cooling and NB voltage at 1.39v !! any idea how to lower my board temp !? what is the normal temp !?

Tribe i'm talking about this one, my problem is that my computer POSTs fine with 3x1GB sticks but then when i put my 4th one in it doesn't post AT ALL so i was wondering if my BIOS could be the problem? I'm running revision 0307 right now

Finding minimum Vcore 333*9......so far it's @ 1.256V. I'll keep ya posted

42C is nothing to worry about. But if you want to improve the temp, remount the stock NB with AS5, or buy an aftermarket cooler for it.

Wow that's hot. Must be all the heat coming off the extra 8800. Since your SB is sitting right under a pair of really hot GFX cards, you might think about putting a cooler on it. This is what I have on mine, and the smaller of the two spare heatsinks it comes with fits perfectly on the CPU mosfets as well.

As for the NB...again, you probably want an aftermarket cooler on it. Reseating with AS5 will probably help, but might not be enough. I've got this on mine. It seems to be working great, but it gets hot as hell. The configuration I have it in is not ideal (the fan draws air off my CPU cooler and blows it onto the GPU), but it's the only one that works with my CPU cooler. I've hit some very subtle stability issues with my OC, and it's not impossible that it's due to heat on the NB....

you can configure PC probe's temp limits. Go PcProbe>Config>Sensor/threshold>Temperature and type 50 in the box under threshold. Click apply. This should be your max daily 24/7 temp, but you can run 60C to get a benchmark.

Deifinitely update...Consensus is version 0608 if you are going to OC. Good luck getting 4X1Gb up. Personally I would have opted for 2X2Gb as it puts less demand on the board.

Hrrm. Probably worth trying the 0608 BIOS. Also try increasing vdimm a touch, sometimes 4 dimms is a bit rough. And of course stay on stock timings.

I wondered how running a second high power card for SLI would affect the SB just by looking at the board when I bought it. The NB HS is alright- better w/a fan on it, but still could have been better.

It's possible, but I have no idea how to ship international.
And if I do go Core 2, it won't be this year. Saving for that GTS! ^^ And then games, games, games. I still need to buy Bioshock, so I am behind as you can see.
I'm holding out till end this month for the supposed improved GTS with 112 SP. If it isn't true, I don't care what comes out in a month or a week. I will not wait a day longer and will buy a 8800GTS at the end of this month. waiting
