post #8441 of 12343
4 months after inquiring about CPU temps, I finally have my Venomous-X. It BARELY cleared the motherboard heatsinks, but it did. I have a 38mm Panaflo and 25mm Yate Loon in push pull on a fan controller, and so far my temperatures are pretty decent.

What I still don't understand is why there's such a discrepancy between calculated core temps and measured socket temp on this board. We're talking about a 15C difference no matter what cooler I have installed. I want to be comfortable with my mild overclock, but OCCT shows the socket temp reaching max (62C) after about 5 min, even though the core temps aren't higher than 47C.

Any thoughts?

I have no experience with it, so I can't say if it's noisy, but..
It will probably never need to run at max rpm, so it won't be too noisy.

OK...so I've ordered Xigmatek Balder and tomorrow I'm going to install it.

As far as I know there is some thermapaste included in the kit. Do you think that it's worth applying?

And what kind of thermalpaste can it be?

Hey, long time no see! Thanks again for the VenX suggestion. I'm quite pleased with the VX Black. The socket temperatures really are peculiar though. At idle the socket temp will jump between 1-5C higher than the avg core temp. At load is when the difference grows. I had the same problem with my previous cooler, an all copper Zerotherm BTF90. Even with its 2700RPM 90mm fan, socket temperature would always be too hot.

My x3 720 reads the same on my M2N32-sli dlx and M4N98td-evo.
Core temps are always 10-15c under cpu temp at idle and loaded core temps remain under cpu temps by about 5c,cpu temp 35c-core temps don't pass 30c.
As you can see in the pic below my core temps are about 6c under ambient.
tmpin0 is cpu temp.
I think the 940's run hot by nature.

This is it here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233069.

It should do just fine.

Good luck

Thank you for a great idea! I'm going to run out and check its temps in another AM2+ board. It's very possible the 940BE just runs hot, but it just seems odd that my 6400+ was just as bad.

A few things about your HWMonitor. If your ambient temps are ~21°C, why are your hard drive temps so high? What kind of airflow do you have through your case? Your CPU?

6400+ another furnace

That hdd has always run on the warm side.Doesn't matter how much air I toss at it
It's mounted behind the fan bottom front of the cm 690.

The cpu is mounted vertically, about 2in above the gpu and about the same from the 2 top 120mm exhaust fans.

I have 7 fans total.

Not a bad temp for a 940be. i wouldnt worry about the socket temp. it is a probe not even touching the cpu, and is under the hot side of the cores so the air will get hotter as it is not cooled. the actual core's are cooled with your heat sink. mine have seen 60*C and my socket temp was around 73, so i think if the socket temp was true i would have let the magic smoke out of my cpu..

today has been horrid though for my m2n-sli dlx. my Ethernet keeps going out on both plugs. i replaced both my cords and still same thing. i re flashed my bios, and cleared bios. so far it is working, but i have not tried my oc or anything else.

That's better, your core temps under load are really good now.

Do you have fans in front of your hard drives?
