What is the safe temp for PWM ?
I have ABIT AN8 ULTRA (nforce 4 ultra) with X2 [email protected] 1.50Vcore...
-CPU goes 46-47C maximum (2x SP2004 instances) cooled by Big Typhoon
-PWM reaches 65-66C after 30min of 2xSP2004...
is 66C for PWM safe? what is the max safe temp for it?
thanks

PWM: maybe someone can show me where i can find the PWM on my board... thanks

PWMs are the power regulation MOSFETs. They are near the CPU. Sometimes they have heatsinks, sometimes not.

I'm not sure what a safe temp is for them though.

yeah... i've hear they can manage ~90C
anyway somebody knows EXACTLY where it's located on an ABIT AN8 ULTRA motherboard?
thanks

Here they are.

If you can rig a small fan to blow on the area, it'll drop the temps pretty well. At first I had the stock cooler on mine, but when I put in my xp-90, the overhang provided airflow to the area and temps dropped a lot.
