This is far and away the biggest and most repeated issue on this mainboard.

The first post in this thread should be updated to mention this temperature concern and what to do about it if it matters that much to the owner.

Otherwise every **OCD** owner that prances in here, myself included, will raise a red alert.

For myself, I opted to point an 80mm fan at the NB heatsink. Others have taken a more drastic step of putting a water-cooling block on it. And yet others choose to let it be.

Since heat is a known wear-out mechanism, I chose an active cooling solution.

Thanks, I think I am going to get a fan for the NB too. My case has all of the intake at the bottom and front except the 2 SP 120 quiets on the front of the HDD cages. I think I will get a SP performance fan for the top HDD cage which should blow more air right over the NB and across the GPU as you can see in pics of my rig. If that doesn't help some then a dedicated 80mm will be the next option. At some point I may W/C all of it but if I do it won't be for a while. It's good to know that I am not in eminent danger though because the only time I near 100% CPU load is during benchmarks testing so I will never see 62 otherwise. More direct cooling to the NB should help.

If you scan my photo gallery, you'll see one picture of how to situate the spot fan. Low tech stuff for sure, but it does work.

Depending on ambient temperature, you will see the idle number down at 40C and about 52C under gaming load.

___________________

One more thing. Not all fans are created equal. You want something that has some grunt. If the fan doesn't have enough cfm rating, or says something like quiet or whisper, you might as well stand in front of the CHVF and wave your hands at it, as a weak fan won't do much of anything to help.

That is impressive. I would love to see my 8350 there but I would need something better than the H100i I think. And a lot more knowledge.

can finally get round to getting some performance out of this now with these extra parts i ot for my birthday.
however im completely new to overclocking so can anybody guide me through.

fps is pretty low just running eve online clients.
currently have 3 asus 24" monitors and a 42" hitachi connected up to the two cards two on each

Sawadicap all! I just came back from holiday in Thailand and managed to purchase myself an FX-8350 for a ridiculously low price of 6150 Baht, which is much much cheaper than getting one here in Singapore. Heres some pics:




I've managed to OC it to 4.6Ghz at 1.44v before it starts to get reaaaaalllll toasty. Its being cooled by a H100i but under 28c ambient, I hit the 62c threshold within 6 minutes of Prime95 Blend. Need to figure out another solution if I want to try and hit 5Ghz without turning my room into an oven haha.
