msi 970a-g43 are these temperatures safe?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am running a amd fx 8350 on a msi 970a-g43 motherboard.

i am well aware of the vrm heat issues and all that, and instead of buying a new board i modded my board smile.gif
i added heatsinks to the vrms and also added some case fan, including a fan that blows directly on the vrms.
the air flow and the fans possitions should be accurate and set up correctly. MSI says that AMD is lying about the 125 max W the cpu is supposed to operate at, so i also lowered the cpu voltage to 1.3V.

My system runs stable, not a single hick-up ever. And my computer is so quiet that if i turn of my monitor i dont even know if the computer is on or not smile.gif

Under heavy load the fans take off and the computer makes more noise of course.

Everything seems to be running fine and smoothly without trouble. Now all i need to know is if the temperature readings i get in HWinfo are acceptable, or if i need to do some more modding.


I started HWInfo and after that i ran 3dmark benchmark. This doesn't stress the components as badly as prime95 does i think, but anyways... are these acceptable minimum, maximum and average temperatures for the board and cpu?




(the auxiliary temperatures are the vrm temperatures. before i added the vrm heat sinks and fan these would go up to over 90 degrees C)

Are these temperatures good, or should i mod some more?
(no, i wont buy a new board, i will mod the crap out of this crappy motherboard before i buy another one biggrin.gif )

Those temps are fine, they are a little above average but your fine. You should only really worry about the temps if they get in the 90s to 100s degree celsuis

That board isnt safe sell it asap had the G46 and i think it took out my 8350. Just saying.

well, without modding the g43 and g46 boards are a really bad idea for a 8350.
if you add proper heavy cooling to the VRMs and undervolt your cpu like i did everything should be fine though.

without modding the vrms reach temperatures above 90 degrees celcius.. no wonder that board cooks cpus. my vrms stay around 60 degrees max at heavy load.
