After reading the comments about the NB overheating and my NB on my MSI790FX-GD70 running @75-80C I disassebled the heatsink, cleaned the NB and SB, applied AS thermal paste AND attached a small 50mm cpu fan directly over the NB HS. In the BIOS I set the fan to run at 50% (@2300rpm) and the temp has dropped to 57C and never goes over 62C. That's a BIG improvement.

make sure u scrub the chips b/c the pink stuff is dried on and the chips themselves should be kind of shiny when clean... Take a paper towel and wet it w/ rubbing alcohol and try to clean all that gunk off...

be sure its off of both surfaces now...

My idle tems are 40-44C which is much much better than before.... and also be sure the screws on the back are good and tight so that it makes a good contact w/ the SB / NB chips!

Alrighty, first things are first. Let's just get straight to the overclock. Now I did decide I wasn't going to use any additional voltage b/c lets face it...HEAT!

The setup to produce the maximum heat on both the imc and nb:



Fresh idle temps



Just ran a 5 pass linx on it to generate some serious heat - It fared okay but did surpass the 64c max thermal spec. For some reason coretemp stuck @ 59c when the load dropped. Actual idle after linx was 39c.

Just a thought guys...my cores run at lower temps as compared to my cpu and this has happened over the last 3 cpu's that I have used....now most of what I see is the cores running hotter than the cpu...so whcih one is right? that also means that my board is not getting the cpu temps right if the cores are running cooler...

I always go off of my Core temps.... They match the temps read in the Program "Coretemp"... and that's what I care about most...

What IO'm starting to wonder is if MSI starting using a Different Factory TIM on the NB/MOSFET HS's... There is a bar code in between the 1st and 2nd PCI-e Slots onthe motherboard. I wonder if that could possibly tell us if there is some relation in motherboard batches. Maybe the latest batch has a different TIM.

I'm going to be replacing my TIM this weekend when my TX-3 shows up. So I will pay attention as to what Color TIM that is on there.

My temps are fine right now, but i want to make sure, with all of this talk (I Know, I sound paranoid) of NB Temps, that my TIM doesn't go to H.E. Double Hockey's in a hand basket and bring up my temps. So I will defintely show some pics of the experience and post them...
