OC/upgrade to 1055t/both???

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I would like to get the most out of this computer until bulldozer or IB is released.

I have a few questions:

1. Does anyone have a clue what the TMPIN0,1,2 temps pertain to? From what I found online, these could be NB, SB, and ????
anything at +90C scares me. I have not been able to get ANYTHING out of Gigabyte regarding this.

2. Considering my temps and the motherboard, could I get a good overclock to the CPU and NB? I believe buying the h50 would be the best route to take for overclocking this thing. If there might be something better, I will definitely check it out.

3. Would buying a 1055t and overclocking be worth the 180 if i am able to overclock?

These temps are with my current sig setup over a 24hour period of Boinc WCG at 85% CPU usage. I also have the CM Sphere. Ambient temps currently are about 72-76F in my room. I've tried reseating this heat sink a couple of times with different methods with the same results for temps. I've come to the conclusion that this CM Sphere BLOWS. I bought this thing way back when without any research

tmpin0= MB temp
tmpin1= cpu temp
tmpin2=?. But from what I have seen on most AMD boards it's an unused sensor,mine says 128c and never moves.

You could most likely get away with 1.35v for the cpu @ stock, that should help your temps a bit.

With the 1055t you will lose the unlocked multi and have to oc by ref clock alone,so I would try to oc by ref clock alone with your 940 to test how high you can get before you buy the 1055t.

I would get some of these for the mosfets http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=23308,as your mb has only 3+1 power phase, they are likely to heat up pretty fast when you oc.

Good luck

Probably the 3 temps are some sensors on the motherboard, and the 90°+ must be the VRM. It can go up to about 120°C before it causes problems

It's known Phenom II CPUs OC quite a bit better if the temps are lower, so a H50 might help. My 940 gets 3.3GHz at stock voltage with below 65°C load temps when cooled by a 20$ Hyper 212+; an H50 could only be better.

...of course not, but depends on the metric. If you keep the 940 @stock speed it's gonna be 180$ for 20%-30% in very very few apps (encoder, renderer) and 0-5% in most programs. If you OC the 940 the difference is smaller; the 1055 is more difficult to OC as it has locked multiplier and has higher power consumption (thus needs better cooling). 780/785G boards rarely have the power circuitry strong enough to be able to OC a 6 core CPU.

....it doesn't look like the best cooler out there, but for 3GHz it seems adequate.

tmpin 1 is probably the south bus, controller for hdd/pci slots
tmpin 2 is your fireplace?

that mobo doesnt have the 8pin power plug or heatsinks on the mosfets
i wouldnt trust it to overclock very much, or at all

you can get a heatsink kit if you want to be brave and try

As already stated, I'd be more worried about the mosfet cooling since it has a
3+1 power phase (4+1 if u have revision 2.x of your board).

I'm running the 1055T on a 4+1 board with mosfet cooling aswell (stock clock tho) and I must say its running great. Haven't fiddled with OC yet tho.

Keep your current cpu for now and just wait. In the meantime, get a real cooler (CM sphere is not so good), drop your voltage a little and clock it a little.

So many good coolers out there now, just go with whatever is in your price range and will fit in your case.
It's so little!

I don't recommend upgrading to the 1055T. Ever. Not until you exchange that board, in which the unheatsinked 3+1 power phase is bound to blow up the minute you start a stress test on your 1055T. In fact, the 940 is also a 125W... which is rather dangerous. You should consider lowering the clocks on your processor.

Are these VRM's the Black cubes that are labeled R##. Refer to picture. I know this is a cheapy motherboard, but reading for so long on OCN is compelling me to OC my rig. I would like to OC for the experience of it and to push it close to the limit to get everything i can out of this rig.


I will stick with the 940 for sure then. I can put heat sinks on those if that will help the tempurature of the MB and allow me to OC a bit more. This will be my first OC attempt so I'm not sure what this will do to the temps of the MB. If it is possible should I outfit the VRM with heat sinks for a better OC and temps?

You should, not just for better OC and for temps but for your own and your rig's safety.

here ya go
the black cubes are the cap's, the flat black ones are the mosfets
