To be honest, iy sounds like they (HS Surfaces) may not be making good contact with the chips. The HS bars are really sensitive to the touch and easily bent without noticing. I took mine and pressed the VRM HS up to a mirror. it proved to me that SB was sitting a little high so I tweaked it back a rechecked it using the mirror (Large hard wall mirror with no flexing). I was haing the same issue. Just a thought.

This is why I suspect that they're not making "enough" contact. Or there's to much TIM. I literally put this much on both of mine MoBo chips "0". Maybe this much on the NB. "0"...


If he corrected us on the NB temps with AMD Overdrive then my temps according to TMPIN3 mines is at 36c... well odd thing I'm seeing here is the TMPIN2 is at 49c... no clue what is that

HWMonitor says Motherboard at 36c & AUX at 49c <-- no clue what is that either but same temp as before

Everest says Motherboard at 36c & I don't see anything with 49c.. NB is now saying 73c

Speedfan says Remote1 at 73c, Temp3 36c & Temp2 49c <-- still don't know what it is lol

So now I'm lost on everything..... what the heck is AUX, Temp2 & TMPIN2 which is shown for me at 49c..... and what really is my NB temp... if AOD says TMPIN3 is 36c.. but NB on Everest is 73 & Remote1 is 73c


About my previously mentioned 50s - 60s that's because I was at stock settings... now that I'm back overclocked to 4Ghz (and ram at 1333 1.8v) the NB(according to Everest) number is around 70's... so to be honest I don't think Everest & Speedfan are really reading that as North Bridge... I honestly think those are the RAM temps because that is the only thing I feel warm on my board... but since i want to be safe .... heheheeee assuming my motherboard is probably freaking nuts & its actually burning NB at those temps... I will unmount everything & re-seat th NB heatsink to do again the paste.. hopefully.... this time it will go down those Everest/Speedfan readings.

Look at Cas7 1600mhz...


Now Cas5 1333mhz


Here is some Cas6 1704mhz for you.....



And Some Cas6 1736Mhz


And Finally some Cas6 1800Mhz with 2925mhz CPU-NB. This was fun but needed more voltage than I was comfortable with...





If I had the money I would get these.
The 2nd & 3rd everest reads are w/the cpu at 3400MHz not the nominal 4000MHz. Scores are not consistant due to this fact. I call a vote for a redo lol

Those ram modules look nice and all but they cost way to much for so little IMO.

LOL- Got them back when they first came out and they were only $150 then.... ! I will admit that they could be better modules and more easily ran at higher speeds. I haven't messed with them in a while. Cas6 1600-1700Mhz with 3ghz CPU-NB runs great for me...

EDIT: P.S. Just in case you diodn't realize it. That's why it's called "Lavalys Everest Cache & Memory Benchmark"... not "Lavalys Everest CPU, Cache & Memory Benchmark"...

Latency is the Main Focus here.

i was under the impression that msi started using small plastic washers on the vrm/nb/sb heatsink screws in an attempt to correct the high temps due to lack of good contact with the nb chip. i know mine doesn't have em but i've had it for some time now. can anyone confirm this? i've replaced the paste on mine twice now and i just put a blob on the chips because i thought it was a contact issue. im pretty sure we went over this 5 or 6 months ago but im lazy and dont want to go back through all the pages.

Well my board is a revision 1.0 (first batch) and I have these washers that you speak of. One could also stretch out the Springs to increase some fo the tension when remounting the HS. or replace them with some of a little higher rebound spec.

Are they washers or isolation circles so as not to risk a short? My v.1.0 had small washer like circles but i wouldn't have gone as far as calling them washers.

As for NB temps, whatever app we're using to read it-think of it like this; remember to when you had a clunker (or hooptie for you younger folks) and you got in it after it was sitting in the hot sun on a summer day. You don't have AC, so you get in your car and drive off and rest your elbow on the window sill: OUCH! That's friggin hot! That would be about 45-50c. If your NB HS isn't felling like that then have no worries.

Yep, those would be washers. Mine were black thin plastic rings.
