Motherboard Temps

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm new to overclocking and relatively new to the site but I've done a fair bit of reading and one of the things I was reading basically stated to keep your Phenom II under 55C which isn't a problem but I was wondering about how high some of the other parts should get. On HWMonitor, my TMPIN0 is roughly 10C higher than my processor and after running Prime95 blend test for a couple hours, HWMonitor was reporting that TPMIN0 was at 51C. So I was wondering, how high should I let that temperature get?
Also, I'm posting this in the AMD Mobo section because I haven't got a clue what part of my computer TPMIN0 monitors but it's under the mobo drop down area.

TMPIN0: Typically your North bridge.. They are relevantly tolerant usually and can sustain high heats close to a GPU. Contact MSI tech support for your specific boards NB TJMax. IIRC The GD70 NB TJMAX is like 82 or 87c

Thanks for the quick replies.

Now we need a real ruling.... lol... Does the socket really get 10c higher then cores on the chip?
