[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 410

post #4091 of 9641
I purchased the 790FX about a month ago and (like everyone) I've noticed abnormally high NB/SB chipset temps. Running Prime95, I've hit about 58+ with my NB and something a little lower for the SB.

My question is: Is it really worth it for me to disconnect everything and pop the board to reapply TIM? I know it's easy, but I'm a newbie and I'm afraid I'll do something wrong in my haste to get the computer back together and cure the TIM. I've seen people complain about 80-90C temps and I don't know if my temps are really as high as I think they are.

Thanks

I replaced my TIM on my NB/SB and my temps dropped from 90C to about 62C : / the safe temp MSI said was below 80C so. . I don't really know what to do, 58C seems okay to me for the mobo.

Try an Antec Spotcool HSF. I'm pretty sure it'll fit underneath the GPU even if you stick it to the top of your NB passive heatsink.

reapply it! It's definitely worth it. The lower you can get the temps the better.

Should I get a Spotcool too? I'm pretty sure the hot air over the heatsink is being blocked from moving out by my big GPU. I'd like to get a Spotcool fan, but I dunno if I have an extra hole to mount it in.

EDIT:

I think there's a mounting hole here.

Bottom left corner. Big enough for a Spotcool?

Hey guys...I got a little idea from meticadpa when he threw up a picture of his caseless setup. I figured I'd give it a shot and added my own little ghetto-flare to it. Result so far is minus 6°C on idle. Getting ready to test some load right now with it.

well added the shroud...and then for flare I added the electrical tape. I just noticed a lot of air spewing out there...So easiest way to divert it where it needs to go was the tape.
