Hi kanin

Welcome, there is a way to take out a bit of guess work of boot up temps, well for me it is a simple way to take away the suicide risk on a suicide run. Not that your going suicide run, but if you venture down that path i'll give details below of the setup. Ive tried sensors and there not very accurate unless you get your cooler machined and even then i doubt they'll be as accurate, as the Blitz board i had a sensor right on the inside of the cpu clamp and it was still not very accurate

You dont need to do this, but you only got one rig, and this will give you more control of whats happening, will need $120 cash

1 x Fan controller that can handle 1.43Amp, so any that handle 20watts per channel, with lcd on rpm is best, $50-$70

1 x PWM Fan Adapter more here must be pwm

1 x AP-30 but down below you must select Change to 3-Pin ($3.99)

Mod the fan, what you'll do is cut the male end off the PWM FAN Adapter, and soldier the wires up by color, and the last wire(blue pwm) see link below
http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling/1045524-gentle-typhoon-pwm-mod.html

The mad setup, this is the easy bit, the 4 pin lead cut the red wire, mobo does not supply the power(startup of 1.43amp could kill a mobo, this solves that problem) this goes to mobo cpu pin

The 3 pin snip the black wire this goes to the fan controller.

What the above all does is lets you still use the motherboard software to calibrate the cpu pwm fan, and still gives the rpm of cpu on the motherboard. But you also get the rpm now on your fan controller as the pc boots up, take note of when you calibrate the cpu fan(AP-30), if fan is set at say 70% at 70c and you see it boot up at 70%(that'll be 3000rpm)your getting close to where its getting very hot on boot up. In fact you'll only need to target 2000rpm at win 7 logo, 2400rpm gets me to 5ghz but we dont have same cooler setup

Its the windows logo on boot up is where the cpu tends to get at its hottest point, and you'll know how things are going, and this is how i do my suicide runs, at a point it is not like a suicide run at all thumb.gif

Now if you do not have cash or time for the above, you can still safely go higher. If you get a chance the details of your bios be great, i got lots of spare time atm.

My Rampage got back from rma, and ioh sits at 97c(shutdown after 2min of bootup), i got to rma it again, stuck my other Rampage in, and now all my ram slots are stuffed in it, have to rma it too now. Im pissed off atm at asus, it must had killed my sticks of ram, only got 2 sticks and p6t mad.gif
