Why is my A8R32-MVP Deluxe motherboard running so hot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't even run Orthos for 7 minutes without my motherboard getting up to high 40's to mid 50 degrees celcius . I don't understand what is going on because this has never been an issue for me? I was running my DDR PC3200 memory at 216MHz and now I dropped it down to 176MHz (didn't fix the heat issue), I dropped my Hyper Transport down to 520MHz something and this didn't help. My voltage on my processor is set at 1.375volts which is under max for my processor so that can't be the problem. I'm at a loss for words because for the last two days I have been fine running at probably the highest overclocks that I will most likely see running on my system while stile stable 24/7. Please help me out because this really sucks and I would like to find out what is wrong.

Also, during gameplay in BF2142 my processor was running at 46 degrees celcius and my motherboard was running at 55 degrees celcius right before my computer shut down...(MB) (ME)

Did you by any chance dislodge the heatsink on the southbridge chip? Try loading the default bios settings

Your temperatures are fine, as far as I can see.

Question: What are you using to monitor your temperatures? Unless I miss my guess, you're using Asus' Probe II software, yes? If you are, then you can adjust the thresholds for the various temperatures upward so that your rig doesn't shut down when the motherboard chipset hits 55 degrees C. (I'd go as high as 60 degrees; unless your case airflow is horrendous, it shouldn't go that high.)

Your CPU temps are very good, so you don't have to worry about that at all.

Hope that helps!
