Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 448

Ok, for all those looking at aftermarket cooling:

The Thermaltake HS-05 SLI XFI does NOT fit on the southbridge with two 8800GTX and a creative X-FI. No way. Unfortunate, but I can return mine for a refund.

Good to know, rep+ for the tip. This should be added to the OP.

Hi Guys

So in my earlier post a couple of days ago I was advised that on this type of board its a MUST to cool the NB and SB and it seems a very common thing to do reading this thread... but how do you know if they are getting too hot..? I can't see their temps reported in everest ?

Also when I run the everest stress test, any idea why it shows my cpu cores at around 50degrees but coretemp shows them closer to 40.. which should I believe?

My E6850 seems quite happy at 3.4 at the moment
9x388 vcore 1.35

Many Thanks (apologies if the above are stupid questions)

Ouch, if I would have caught this thread in time I would have warned you that in advance... If you're ever, ever not 100% sure about a configuration, email ThermalRight (ideally with a picture of your setup) and just ask them. They were completely up-front with there "no chance in hell dude" response, lol...

EVEREST Ultimate Edition 4.20.1261 beta and newer beta version show true parameters and value for this mainboard and your cpu.this version or newer beta version also show MCP temp which is southbridge temp at Computer >Sensor menu.

this mainboard SB and NB become too hot during overclocking.
for example I had seen MCP easily went to 86c once time when I place my SN headsink abit bad.

some user here use termometer and external sensor for checking SB and NB temps and they confirms that SB and NB become so hot.

maybe you system work good for some time buy without active cooling on them your mainboard will have very short life.

For me the quad-core was the better choice because my machine is a "development machine" first, gaming machine second... and vmware (I do my work exclusively in virtualized environments) is _very_ scalable on a quad core...

As always, YMMV...

I got me a reliable infrared thermometer and fire it at components to get their surface temperatures. I also keep track of the ambient temps of the room with a little desktop thermometer so I know what the temperatures of the room are as well...

My northbridge, on stock coolers, was running at 97C (idle @ stock speeds) before I swapped them out. And the need to swap them out isn't as cut and dry as if you overclock. Even if you don't overclock but you have a tower-styled cpu cooler (e.g. ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme) you'll probably have to upgrade them as well. The reference design of the board is such that it depends on a cpu cooler that is blowing air "downward" against the motherboard. Tower styled coolers don't do this and create a dead-pocket of air over the northbridge heatsink.

A cheaper solution, if you're not overclocking, is to superglue - or otherwise fasten - a 20mm fan on top of the northbridge heatsink blowing down on it. It works, but not as efficiently as getting in there yourself swapping them out with something more "active" in terms of cooling...

Hey guys...again, me hehe...
I discovered why the MCP shows 70c...the cooler of the southbridge for some reason, the fan it's not workin. although the LEDs are...
I'm still confused about something...the Tjunction or core temps are suppose to be 10 +/- the CPU temp...but mine are 20+...Cores go around 50 and 60...CPU go around 30... how's that?
post #4479 of 5659
The B3 runs hotter than the G0 but we need more background info. Are those values idle or load temps, what was the room's ambient temperature (approximations are fine) at the time and where they stock or overclocked speeds?

i posted the screenshot like 3 page before....those are in Idle...stock was the same and now it is in 2.9ghz...the ambient is always in 28-32c
