Overheating MB

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I was tweaking my OC last night and had it up to 4.8. I was running prime95 and the motherboard temps jumped up to 70C. Normally, the temp holds steady at 26C, so that was a pretty big jump in temp. I checked to make sure all the fans were running and so forth and everything looked fine. So I shut the computer down for a little while and ran prime again. This time, the temps didn't really jump at all. They stayed under 30 and I ran prime for an hour. I have been running it all morning at 4.8 and the motherboard is doing fine. The CPU is getting up there though. Its at 72, so I am not going to keep this OC until I upgrade my cooling.

What would cause the motherboard temps to spike like that? It just seems really weird that all I had to do to get them back to normal was to reboot.

Personally I believe it probably had to do something with a sensor misreading OR possibly unstable voltage somewhere throughout the motherboard. As long as it's fine now I wouldn't worry about it. Just make sure you have that sensor up cause if it does it again and it is a voltage issue you don't want your motherboard to get all crispy.
