15 minute idle temperatures in the BIOS, comparing EK CPU block plates. The ambient temperature on the second test is 2.4°c/4.3°F lower.

Original temperatures with the highest flowing plate.

Ambient: 31.1°C/87.9°F
CPU: 36°C
MB: 38°C
NB: 38°
SB: 38°C

Second set of temperatures with the lowest flowing plate.

CPU: 34°C
MB: 39°C
NB: 39°C
SB: 38°C

A. Best way to figure this out if its a defective board before actually starting the build.

C. After all thats done, Im looking to overclock my CPU with this board (Phenom II X6 1090T) what are some starting points i should look at to make overclocking a bit easier. Cooling will be with a Corsair H50 and my memory at the moment is 8gb Total of the A-Data Gaming Series memory.

a) plug in and use and monitor temps and then let us know OR rip it off and see how it looks

b) get sand paper and something flat

c) increase the multiplier is the easiest way and READ up to get all the info

o yea the bios you have to use the +/- sign to increase/decrease or type in the numbers

A.) There is really no way to tell until you hook everything up. You could assemble the board, cpu and ram on your desk outside the caase and do some tests. Really the problem is that on some of the boards, the NB heatsink is not making good contact with the NB core. If your load temps at stock are > 60 or so you prolly got one of those. I would imagine ASUS has fixed this issue by now, but who knows. Either way, its really not a show stopper

B.) Reseat the heatsink. If you look back to around page 50 or so of this thread, that is pretty much all everyone is talking about. Best long term fix, get the EK waterblock and join the 30C NB club

C.) keep everything on AUTO and see how high you can get the CPU up (and stable) with just the multi. Once you start to loose stability, take note of the AUTO voltages and start from there in manual mode and crank em up a bit, like .025 or so a notch. Once you find out how high your CPU can go on multi only, drop it down to like 12 or so and see how high you can get the BUS up to... Once you figure that out put the 2 together and BAM you will be smokin!

Also, there are tons of Phenom II OC guides on this site for detailed info about OC by BUS

Have fun!

I to am using that plate, getting great temps. For anyone else curious about this, Skinnee did some crazy deep analysis on this block, his results are pretty much considered scientific facts lol

And wassup with those ambient temps cowboy? LOL You must be down to a wife beater and some boxers in that house! Sheesh!

thank you so much for that info. Only thing on getting that EK block will be having to build a water loop system and i personally am scared making one out scratch since a lot of bad things usually happen >_< now if i do get the EK block id have to get other cooling methods for the sb and mosfet areas correct? and would it be bad to run water cooling system along side the H50 just for the NB cooling?

I'm happy with the loop I have & the temperatures. IIRC, temperature of the CPU was 46°C with the boxed factory HSF. My chipset temperatures were also in the 50°C+ range. I went with dual radiators & medium flow fans as a compromise between cooling & temperatures. I'm sure the temps would drop if I put in thicker radiators & high flow fans, but that isn't happening. The noise from the high speed fans I had tested wasn't making me happy. I'm around 70 CFM with an acceptable noise output. YMMV.

The EK block cover the NB, VRM, and the SB... You could have 1 loop for that and use H50 for CPU, but that would be kinda silly... You can run a nice CPU/NB set on a small 120mm rad and get great temps.

Check out my build log, around page 5-6 or so, I did some tests with a single 120mm rad with CPU/NB on the loop and got some great results!

No, the EK block covers all of the vital areas minus the CPU. They have blocks for that too. It's not too hard to put a loop together, but it does require some thought. You complicate things with the H50 in the case, but not too much. You would need to assemble what would be considered a 2nd loop for the chip set block, or sell the H50 & build one loop.

Im just gonna throw this out there, I cant speak for everyone here unless its true for them as well. I bought my CHIV less than two weeks ago, I really did not see any improvement in temps after I did the stand-off idea, and applied new tim. it actually went up. I updated bios to 905, and temps went down 3-5c. so updating bios may help if your temps are high. My original temps were 55c ambient 25c no oc, after tim and standoff mods 58c ambient 25, after bios update 52 ambient 25c oc cpu @ 4.0. <-much, much better
