970A-G43 is VRM temperatures the only issue? - Page 2

post #11 of 45
undervolting it should help you. If this is of any use I have a Phenom II X4 965 overclocked to 3.9Ghz on that board. It was mining for days too, haven't blown anything out just yet.

too late. done and done xD

now the only question is if the temperature reading in hwinfo that says "auxiliary" which goes up to around 86 degrees celsius is something i should worry about...

i am guessing these are the vrms.. now the question is what temperatures are conscidered safe...

Good VRMs are rated up to 105C, though I'm not sure waht these are rated for.

¨well, im glad you didnt say that the top notch vrms are like 80 degrees tops xD

I am guessing though that the vrms on my board are pretty crappy, seeing the huge amount of negative love they have been recieving

I only bought this board because I didn't know i would end up with a Phenom II x4. If I blow out a VRM I hope the Phenom lives.

lets hope so smile.gif

and hope neither of us blows any vrms ^^

I set the max cpu volt to 1.3V, and sofar my fx 8350, non-overclocked, seems to run just fine and stable. havent done any burn-in tests as they scare me lol xD
but running 3dmark a few times to see what my computer performs like, and no hick-ups yet. all the temperatures look fine too, except for that one auxiliary... i'm not comfortable with low-grade cheap vrms going up to 86 degrees smile.gif i hope i worry over nothing.... as soon as i get an extra fan connector im putting a chassi fan blowing air directly onto the vrms. i hope that makes some difference atleast.

Try enzotech vrm heatsinks. You used all 3 of the fan headers? Well so did I. One for my pump one for my front fan one for my side fan. And I have a PCI rheostat for the rad fan.

yeah, all 3 are used up... but i bought an extra fan because it said "3 pin to 4 pin adapter included"... but that was a lie ><<br /> so now im trying to figure out if i can somehow use the psu floppy power cord to power that fan... smile.gif
should probably just buy a 1x4pin to 2x4pin adapter... but i kinda want to do it tonight, and all stores are closed biggrin.gif

i got these coolers on my vrms biggrin.gif
http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos_c10.htm#
i was a bit worried they would fall off and short circuit my new gfx card ^^ but they really stay in place. so i just need to find out how to power my extra fan then attach it, then this long "get fx 8350 to run stable on my 970a-g43"-board project is finally finished smile.gif

Why no 3 Pin to molex adapter? I got them free with my Antec Tricool 80mm.

well, the site i bought the fans from said there would be adapters.. but there was not xD
and now all the stores are closed... it's half past midnight here right now smile.gif
and i am eager to see the results on the motherboard temperatures once i get a fan blowing directly on the vrms...
i think i am going to do a late night science project smile.gif

chopped up some old computer gear i got lying around... gonna see if i can make my own adapter, then connect an old cpu cooler to it and connect it to a psu i got lying on my desk collecting dust ^^

if my home made adapter makes the fan spin as intended i think i might try and add my own adapter to my computer and power the fan with it smile.gif

(yes i know, i should probably just go to bed instead... ^^ )
