ASUS Rampage NB overheating issue

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello. Just wanna say these forums are the godsend! I got help a few days ago regarding an ATI video issue and was solved. I'm very impressed.

Basically I'm having issues when overclocking, my NB on the ASUS Rampage Formula is up at 55c average... everything else is cool though.

I OC'd to 3.6Ghz on a Xeon x3350 with that board, the temps are:

CPU 42c, MB 34c, NB 57c, SB 43c.
real temp showing 56 53 54 54 (core 1 2 3 4)

voltages: vcore 1.46v, NB 1.46, SB 1.14, DRAM 2.26. (wierd i set those a little different in the bios but they're showing less in ASUS Probe)

Anyway, I would really appreciate your help again. I tried researching but I couldn't find anyone having overheating issue on their Rampage because it comes with a pretty large heatsink combo.

Thanks again.

57 is a bit warm for comfort, but have no fear, your NB is safe at temps under 90C.

Reseating the heat sink with AS5 could be very helpful for you.

Yeah, my NB temps used to be way up. Now they are around 46-48 load, with increased airflow in my case.

what program do guys use to check the NB temp?
I use EVEREST but it shows 55*C is this normal (no o/c all on stock)

I use ASUS Probe II, shows voltages and temps.

Now as of being normal, as the previous posters said it's ok, but can be put lower if using better case cooling, or adding a spotfan or fan on the NB heatsink, this actually seemed to work, because I tried holding a fan against the heatsink and watched the temp go down 1 by 1.

Take off the heatsink assembly for the chipsets. Asus cakes on the TIM and thermal epoxy. You will need to warm the heatsink up a little bit outside of the case with a hair dryer to loosen the epoxy. Remember when trying to remove it, twist it sideways back and forth, NEVER try to rip it straight up, you will take the north bridge along with it and have a non-RMA'able board. Remove all the TIM and epoxy with a razer and apply a thin layer of as5 or whatever you have. Dropped my NB temps by about 10C. I will be putting it under water here in the next week or two, so I won't have to worry about that anymore. The x38/x48 chips just run hot by nature, it's normal.

try lowering that NB voltage. You don't need that type of voltage unless you are cranking 500fsb or have multiple cards.

First go to "User CP", "Your Control Panel", "System information", "Edit System" and fill in your system as detailed as you can, that way it´s easier for us to help you.

Are those temp under load or idle?

I second that, change the TIM should shave of a few degrees.

The heatsink can be stucked quite firm so be carfule thou, look at this.

No problem, do as "ericeod" wrote and you be fine.

Then use nail poish remover to clean off the tim. Dont scrape it or you will gouge the HS and/or IHS.

And you can always put a fan on top of the NB.

You can also try to lower your NB volt, it should do FSB 400 at stock volt, but I don´t know what FSB (probably 400), memspeed or how hard you push your memory with timing and "Ai Transaction Booster" (Common Performance Level).

It can show more or less, it´s rarely spot on and it´s good that you stated from where you got your readings, it should be good if you stated your BIOS setup and from where you take your readouts.

Your NB and SB temps sit pretty close to what mine sit at when I idle (Formula). My NB is 2-3 degrees cooler but its only at 1.4v. However, my temps on those only go up by a couple of degrees while under load so I don't worry. If your temps don't go up too much under load, I wouldn't bother reseating the heatsink for the NB/SB, don't think it would be worth the effort. As someone said, the max safe temp for the NB is about 91^C, theres a document link somewheres on this site about it...

For a week i had an 80mm fan on the NB heatsink, but last week I installed a thermalright HR05 heatsink with the same fan on it and it works great.I also used some AS5. Works like a charm.
