Hey guys, I just wanted to get some input as to which bios is working out best for everyone. I did a clean install a few weeks back and I'm still on 0506 and before I proceed I'd really appreciate the info on a good bios. Also I do plan on getting a 8320 or 8350 when I get the funds together.

Personally I go with the latest. It's been working fine for me and if you are going to get a Vishera, you have to be on 1703 anyway.

However since your board is so old vintage-wise, you may need a chip. There's been quite a bit written up on this and you should be able to find out more info about this topic on the first page of this thread.

I'm looking for an opinion from folks here. If you look in my sig, you will see I recently installed a Corsair H100i. Because there is no direct fan on the Northbridge, the system appears to be running very hot on that hardware. So, is this expected, or, is there some problem with the hardware that has happened causing the NB to get so hot. I want to attack this issue first, and then to understand if the CPU temperature is proper.

Please note in the picture below, the system is not running at stock speed. While the system is at idle, the 8350 is clocked at 4.8GHz and the Vcore is set to 1.425V.



If these values are deemed to be normal or expected under the speed and voltage conditions, is there a proper remedy for this situation. I already got one suggestion to re-TIM the northbridge, but for the life of me I can't see how to get the heatsink off, nor do I really want to undertake it.

i redid the tim on mine and it still runs at 72 under load. lol
havent tried a fan over it
my working theory is that the vrms heat it up since the heatsink is one piece

I apologize in advance since you probably already posted this, but what are your load settings? The highest load for me is running Prime95 v27.7. I can go into the high 70s on mine.

If it's not too much trouble, for whatever settings you have, post a HWMonitor pic of idle mode.

I'm going to post my stock idle data. One thinking for me here is that I never realized this problem existed likely because the previous versions of HWMonitor would simply call those temperature sensors T0, T1, T2 and T3. Since I didn't have a secret decoder ring, those values had no meaning for me. However in the newest release, the folks at CPUID actually put proper labels to those temperatures.

i was running boinc (sort of like folding@home) which uses about 90% cpu. that's about as hot as mine gets. i think i have ultra high LLC on
i have CnQ on but it seems pretty stable at 54 when idle

T0: CPU
T1: Southbridge
T2: Northbridge
T3: MB

Can you tell me what frequency you have your system set to and the Vcore supplied?

Also another big difference on your system is the CPU temp is way lower than mine. That might simply point to a problem with the way I have the H100i seated to the 8350. It's not obvious to me at least how far down to torque the two screws down, but I'll get around to fiddling with it at some point.

oh yeah sorry
200x23 and like 1.46v (steady 1.475 with LLC)
my motherboard is actually permanently bent around the socket because i didnt have exactly the right hardware to mount it and forced it. still works, so dont worry about going too far if you think that is the problem. im sure you know but tighten them evenly so it sits flat

You asked for an opinion,
1st.Your running SLI which "doubles the pleasure, doubles the fun" but common sense tells me there's more heat being generated and less air flow at the same time.
2nd. You removed any close by air movement (to the VRM's) when installing the H100. These two combined leaves the door open to mb heat saturation.
Your NB temp is not voltage related but more likely due to a lack of air flow. This is common when WCing. My case has a thin Scythe 120mm fan mounted behind the mb tray to help keep everything chilled better. Next step would be a full board block or simply improve the direct air flow to the NB HS and VRM HS. I'd highly recommend the latter, it's much cheaper lol.

I always use AI Suite to compare values, than relabel the names for the info in HWMonitor. No decoder ring necessary lol.

Thanks for all of it. They all make sense, but there's a matter of degree here (pardon the pun), and that is to say such a large penalty for either SLI or WC to make that much of an impact on temperature of NB is beyond even my imagination.

I saw a picture of one of those thin fans for the first time recently. I'll strongly consider that. Because I've had some hard-disk issues recently, I've kept the side panel off to be able to get to the SATA cabling. Presumably you can close the panel on your case and still allow for some airflow on the backside of the motherboard. For kicks, I decided to check the back-plate for the AM3r2 socket and it is quite cool to the touch at idle.

It appears I have a new revelation to share shortly, so stay tuned...
