DevilSlayer1298 Posted May 11, 2006 Posted May 11, 2006 My chipset temps were getting up into the low 70's when dual priming. I replaced the chipset cooler with the Evercool VC-RE as recommended. Temperatures are lower, but now I have a new problem. As the chipset temp reaches 62*C my CPU get throttled. CPU temps are is low 40's so its not the CPU throttle. I ran Sisandra's CPU arithmetic benchmark several times. The first run would give me the normal results, but as I run these back to back the score goes down. I tried flashing back to the 7/04/05 Big Tommy BIOS from the official 04/06/06 with the same result. NOTE: This problem only occurs when my system is overclocked to 300 x 9. When I run at stock speeds this doesn't occur. I tried fiddling with the chipset and LDT voltages. They were at +.1v over the lowest, so I tried lowest. Still dual prime stable, but the temps still climb up to 60+. Is this the motherboard throttling the CPU's speed or is this physical problem? And why the hell are my temps so high?! I thought it may have been bad air flow. The front fan is blocked by lots of wiring. I opened the case with no effect on the temp. I applied the proper amount of Arctic Ceramique, same amount as in Angry's video. Made sure to press down on the center to spread it. Rest of my system specs in my sig. How long is DFI's warranty just incase this is in fact a bad board? I have been getting these temps since I bought it. EDIT: I just realized, but in speed fan, which one is the chipset set temp. Temp 2 or 3? In the BIOS the temps are listed as CPU first, PWM area second, and chipset third. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
