my mobo is overheating?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hi there? i am just wondering if any of you have my mobo and what's your mobo's temp?

the asus utility shows me that my mobo is 44 degree and it always passed 45 degree and it gives me a warning.

why is it so hot? any of your a8m32 sli runs that hot?
i didn't give extra voltage to NB/SB/CPU, only extra voltage on htt, since i am running 307 htt, and i think it should help the OC or more stable? i am not sure about adding voltage to htt is neccessary or not.

The motherboard sensor is located close to the heatsink/fan socket. Usually a motherboard that is ~10C lower than the processor is seen as viable.

Both your processor and motherboard are higher than I would personally like. I hope that is at load temps and not idle. What fans do you have running in your case and what is the airflow? Test the fans to see which way they are blowing.

From your setup I would imagine you have a decent amount of case fans and flow? Everything there will make a great deal of heat, but I wouldn't imagine that it would make your mobo that hot.


and what Ropey beat me too haha

thanks for the inputs guys.

i think i have pretty good case cooling, as the case is kinda big. also i have a 120mm fan as front intake which push 89 CFM, and 90mm intake fan on the side and 120mm exhaust fan at the back.

the temp is on load, running dual prime95 and scanning virus at the same time.

ropey, what's your load temp with the XP-120?

Well lets examine the situation. I had the same thing going on with mine when I first got it. My processor was not nearly as high though...actually not even close. I would reseat the HS with a rice size amount of AS5.Like Ropey said I hope that temp is at load not idle.

Now for the MB temp. I was puzzeled by this one for a bit too. What brought my temps down on the MB was changing the GPU cooler. I have a 7800GT and the stock cooler expelled its hot air right on the north bridge chip. I thought maybe this was the cause of the temp. I switched to an Artic Cooling NV5 that expelles the hot air out the back of the case and the temps dropped from the 44 like you to my current 36. Looking at the 7900GTX it looks like the cooler expells air out the back of the case and towards the front. With the north bridge not having active cooling this may be causing the temps to be higher.

I am not saying this was the cause but it sure did drop when the change was made. It could have been an out of wack sensor that got reset somehow, the thermal goo Asus uses getting broke in, switching from my CoolerMaster case to the Tsunami. The one thing I am goiung to do to increase cool air intake is add a 120mm iCage fan to the front of the case.

Download speedfan and make sure it has the same readings as the Asus Probe. Also post a pick of it as I want to see if you have a sensor reading -128 like I do.

Dont sweat it amigo we will help get your temps down somehow.

About the same as yours. ~53C. I was not certain if you were giving idle temps or load temps that's all. At that load I believe that your motherboard temps are fine. What are your idle cpu/motherboard temps?

Ahh load. Cool. Looking at what Ropey is saying that is about right for dual core I guess. But your MB temp should not be that high. Disregard what I said about the processor and lets focus on why the MB is high.

I was having the same problem with mine last week, took off my processor and found thermal paste globbed on it (not my doing). Cleaned it up, put a very very small amount of antec formula 5 (didn't have any as5), reseated the hs and my temps dropped 8-10 C on both the board and processor.

mobo idle temp is 38 degree, cpu idle is 40 degree.

by the way, i just got this borad from asus. (i rma'ed my mobo, becoz it died few weeks ago.)

why i was wondering the temp is too high becoz the mobo temp was about 34 degree idle on the asrock sata2 mobo.
