Fixed chipset temp problem...

Recommended Posts

its 5:27 in the morning and i have now found the solution to my the problem that i've been dealing with all night. i have the soprano case, almost exact setup and temp of chipset was 51. After seeing the pics and such, I'm ordering the fan and getting this baby setup. Thanks!

Glad that this could be such a help to you people. Report back with what kind of results you guys get too, I'm curious :D

Hi ,

 

Seems strange to me that a board mentioned in some reviews as " the best overclockers board ever " has such a patchy NB fan. Wouldnt it invalidate the warranty taking off the NB fan ?

 

Secondly being fortunate enough to save up for a Prometeia, I`m a bit worried about those NB temps which look like some MB modding will be required for extreme overclocking !

Hey guys, i too solved my NB Chipset temp problem.

I placed a DC 120mm Fan sideways in my case.That fan has current rating of 0.72A.

Has excellent CFM even though its a bit noisy.

Anyways here are certain values regarding the same -

 

Setup -

CPU Vcore - 1.7V

CPU Multiplier -9x

HTT Speed - 300

LDT Multiplier - 3x

Vdimm - 3.5V

Chipset Voltage - 1.7V

LDT Voltage - 1.4v

 

Initial Temp @ Idle -

CPU - 43c / Chipset - 48c / PWM - 49c

Initial Temp @ Full load -

CPU - 52c / Chipset - 53c /PWM - 51c

 

Temp After Adding Fan @ Idle-

CPU - 35 / Chipset - 37c / PWM - 36c

Temp After Addinf Fan @ Full Load -

CPU - 42c / Chipset - 42c / PWM - 40c

 

I will post a pic soon of the fans that i added

Something that I have seen and tried is to disable the things you don't use in the bios such as any sata ports you are not using. I have done that and replaced the factory tim with some as5 has lowered my chipset temps by about -3 to -4 C at full load. Although I still plan to add some aditional fans and an iceberq 4 to the chipset.

hey all, new kid to the game.

I've only done some minor clocking, mostly w/ amd.

 

I have a nf4 Ultra D on order.....and i've been concerned after

reading here. My question is: if you don't care about warranty,

it seems like it would be better/look better to remove the NB fan

and put the AS5 on it.

So I guess my real question is: has anyone done it and reported temps ?

 

I'm a cosmetic freak about my pc, and I don't really care for the fan

being zip tied into the drive basket. No offense...just preference.

 

secondly, when speaking of temps...what is PWMIC ?

 

thanks all.

well i finally figured something out.

I had this setup overclocked and running well but was pushing 55 to 60 c

on the nf4 chip.

 

I searched High and low for heatsinks(found nothing) and tried the

arctic silver (minimal help).

But I did find my old thermaltake VGA waterblock and modded that

to work. I'm running under/around 100F (38c or so) all the time now.

 

enjoy.

i too added a 80mm fan blowing over the chipset and it's made a big difference

 

the idle temps are now:

 

cpu 31C

pwmic 41C

chipset 42C

 

and load:

cpu 43C

pwmic 48C

chipset 44C

 

the best thing being that at 44C the chipset fan is only running around 5400rpm and doesn't make that nasty whine
