Evga 680i motherboard warped...:S

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey first post guys, i think i need all the help i can get haha.

Anyway so i first noticed that my q6600 was idling hot, sometimes around 47c so i decided to take my mobo out and i descovered a warp right by the cpu socket. It kinda bulges out a bit, so thats why i think my temps are running so high, the cooler (stock) must not be making contact properly.

I really love my pc and dont have ANY cash for upgrades or *tear* replacments....


My full configuration is as follows
Q6600 stock cooling and clockspeed (G0)
evga 680i
2 8800gt's
ocz gamexstreme 850watt psu
and 2 gigs of ocz reaper 1066mhz ram

Actually it's probably BECAUSE of the stock cooler than it bulges out like that. Get a thermalright ultra extreme-120. It's a great cooler and has a backplate to prevent warping.

True, didn't see that part. I just went straight for a solution.. heh.

But I really think the stock cooler is causing the board to warp. MY friend's stock cooler warps his board BAD. Like, I fear for the board it's so bad.

But you are right... The best solution is get a aftermarket cooler with a backplate/bracket. Xigmatek S1283 with their retention bracket, TRUE (not exactly cheap), many coolers out there, but, the stock cooler is most likely the problem

You could just get a bolt thru kit that has a backplate. That way it's only like 10 bucks, but it fixes the issue.

Great idea. Just get one of these - http://jab-tech.com/Thermalright-LGA...t-pr-3605.html, yank out the push pins but the backplate on and screw down your HSF and you should be good to go.
