Now... I would like to know what software reads correctly the NB temps for this board?
With Everest 5.50.2909 beta it says that its around 55c - 57c is that correct? And what is the average on where its suppose to be or what you guys have as temps?

Everest screenshot: http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/8...i790fxgd70.jpg

Which one is the NB on HWmonitor? http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1...i790fxgd70.jpg

Just incase the current NB temp is with Air Conditioner turned on.. I'll have to wait till later on today during the day to get my actual NB temps... its around 5am right now here <-- that won't give me real day temps with AC turned off LOL

At least so far I'm liking the board... tomorrow I'll overclock back to my original 4Ghz & play with all the random settings... Mastiffman I'm still not gonna do the 3,000mhz test on the NB just yet.. i want to know if my temps are good currently on them being on stock or if I need to mod it(add some TIM & fans over it) and then i'll test with my 965 & my friends 955 with the 3k on NB.
the nb usually runs above 70c if you dont remove the heatsink and apply your own paste. once you do replace the paste it shouldn't go over 60c under load.

Well the board looks great and Im excited about the cross fire and all but I can get nothing more outta my chip than I could with the MSI 785gm-e51. I guess the chips have a lot more to do with OC'ing then the motherboards do.

A good vs great overclocking mother board will have similar but suttle differences that make a world of difference when you have hardware tuned for the task of overclocking. You should be able to at minimum get a stable 100Mhz faster over your other motherboard. This board has a lot of options and I would think you could pull off an extra 100-200 MHz over your other board. You may need to use better ram and if that don't do the trick maybe water cooling will help a bit. Your voltage for 4GHz is pretty hight IMO.

thnx

So, you saying Everest is giving the correct temps..... hmm looking at my screen shot of HWmonitor does it have in there the NB? I see AUX but have no clue what is that.

I will be removing the heatsink & changing the paste... using the "How to remove your NB/mosfet/SB heatsinks. By mangoSeed" guide... I just want to make sure of the software that reads correctly the NB.

forgot to mention now that its round the day according to Everest I see 67c but that is regular load... I certainly need to replace the TIM

ok thanx... well installed speedfan and it appears to be the same exact temps as everest.. so okay my temp readings are okay then.

well now I've decided to remove all graphic cards and only leave both of the 5770's (1t slot & 3rd slot)... and the temps have lowered(I'm guessing the 9800GTX+ was creating allot of heat being in between the 5770's), so right now AC turned off and my ambients around almost 90f the NB is showing 55c on load... do you think I still need to do the mod or am I safe to stay like this?

55c is good. i'd leave it. i think the max temp for the nb is 80c. not 100% sure. i've had mine at 80c before and its still alive.

I was under the impression from information I read here in this thread, that Everest misreported the northbridge temps by 10 to 20 degrees, so I quit using it and have relied on AMD OD for my NB temps. With my new board, according to AMD OD, my NB hovers around 29c and it feels no warmer than my CPU heatsink that is reporting 28c. So I'm thinking it's anybodies guess. I do know that if it is running at truly @ 57c (134f) you'd be able to feel that to the touch.

Well i think Speedfan & Everest are both wrong now.. since you mentioned AMD OD

This is what I'm getting on my setup: AMD OD - Speedfan - Everest
