Got caught up today, I will post the stuff you requested tomorrow.
I believe Rev 4.0
What about me? Lol I am running a giga 990fxa rev 1.1. Also get us a pic of your board so we can what rev it is. Rev 4 has different heat sink setup on it. Oh and I scored a rev 4 for cheap last night. Anyone say another 8350 rig this time for benching?
OOps, sorry Madshot, I didn't realize you were sporting a Giga, Random and I had some talk about his board a while ago and I just remembered he had one. But hey jump in any time the more the merrier.
No problem buddy I was just playing around. I do have a rev 4 on it's was also.
On a side note, I drop the voltage on my 8350 from 1.36 to 1.33 and still stable and a decent temp drop to boot.
Can I still be a member? This has been stable for over a year now...
What are your temps like on prime95? socket and core. Thanks, a HWMonitor screenshot would be awesome, from anyone with an FX processor overclocked. I am curious how my temps compare. Thanks.
Welcome back!! Did you play Jumanji by any chance? Got lost somewhere? Longtime no see?
hey, I finally jumped into WC, installed TT Water 3.0 Performer with 2 x Cougar fans. CPU @ 4.2 Ghz with 1.42v I hit max 47C core and 46C socket. Last night I lowered the volts by .5v and the temps mostly hover around 39C core, max going to 43C, Socket temps are also somewhere around that range don't remember. But it seems to be stable at 1.38v. Its freaking hot in Southern California, I think those core temps seems to be holding good.
BTW those temps are while playing BF4 for 1+ hours.
Been busy working on the Jeep and Ranger. PC kinda fell off of the map. Figured I would jump in off and on.
Could you temp that on Prime 95 for about 20-30min? I am curious as to how the closed loop unit compare to my phanteks PH-TC14PE. Thanks.
lol, I don't want to blow up my setup, may be I will post a 10 run IBT?
lol, ok IBT then, i'll also run it for comparison.
Here is screenshot.
Its 95F temp outside. Turned off A/C 30 min before this run.
IBT run - 10 cycles loop
CPU volts - 1.36 - 1.38v
Speed - 4228 Mhz
CPU core - MAX temp - 49C
CPU socket - MAX temp - 50C
Board/VRM - MAX temp - 61C
Under volted by .5v and this is what I got (but only 4 runs). Core max - 46C and Socket Max- 49C.
If TMPIN1 is your Socket temp, then I am really curious as to why I have such high socket temps.
Different boards read differently. My other Gigabyte mATX AM3+ board reports high temps when compared to core temps and under load the alarm kicks in and annoys, I turned it off.
That is what mine does. Core temp is perfectly fine, but almost regardless of settings motherboard CPU temp always hits high 60's. Often times higher than the VRM temp.
Did you install the Asus monitoring software? What are the temps reported on that? May be HWMonitor reports it wrong?
they report the same, maybe 1C variance but they usually equal out. I am experimenting without LLC, as that seems to be the biggest culprit. 1.375 with very high LLC (1.392V) cause the socket temp to reach 70C very quick, and thee back plate is very hot to the touch
HWMonitor reports different socket temps when the machine is restarted or cold boot vs machine wake up from S3. TMPIN1 reports VRM temp instead of CPU temp. Only the core temps are accurate.
Did you check with AOD (newest version), it seems to report very accurate.
BTW my CPU seems to be stable @ 4.2 Ghz undervolted to 1.3v with High LLC reaching to 1.33v, temps during gaming never went above 40C. Hopefully its stable with those settings . From 52C to 40C with water cooling + voltage tweaking = awesome.
Yes, however, the new AOD doesn't show the temp, just degrees till max is reached, which is set for 70. and reports about the same as HWMonitor. Ran Prime95 Large FFT for 20min with fan on auto and LLC at regular 1.375V @ 4.5 socket temp was 62 and core temp stayed around 49.
Try Open Hardware Monitor.
It has option to unhide all the sensors that the board reports. HWMonitor doesn't report proper readings on the ECS board, but this one shows all the ones the board reports, you can select which one you want to see. Few hidden ones were the actual ones that we need lol.
Was going to post that myself. It helped on the Giga 990FX.
I believe the temps are accurate, LLC is just murdering the temp. I did try openhwmon and temps reported the same. The slightest voltage adjustment just has a dramatic effect on temp. The socket temp seems to have a direct correlation to the VRM temp. Half tempted to put in my Phenom II X6 and see if the temp would still read as high at the same given voltage.
did you stick a fan on the VRM to see if there is any change? I have an old socket A 70mm fan blowing on to the VRM sink.
no, not really any room with the Heatsink, it takes up all the room around the CPU.
