my gaming rig's mobo is reading a lil high on my temps, but everything is fine as far as performance, no noticable drops in framerates, no crashes, nothing. should i be worried or am i just stupid? please help :(
Both the CPU and GPU are reading quite normal temps, if not a bit lower than usual (~45°C). Check the southbridge and northbridge on the mobo, it might mean the northbridge heatsink came off. Also look for any other unusually hot place (other than around CPU ofc). Other than that I can't really think of other reasons for overheating mobo except maybe faulty sensors. Which, on the other hand might explain the low temps on CPU and GPU.
How many fans are in your case? What CPU heatsink? Do you have good airflow?
Get RealTemp, Prime95, and MSI Afterburner, run some benchmarks, report the temps and we can move from there.
Also, on a different note why do you have GT 740 in a 'gaming' rig?
2gb video card stock overclock edition, why not, and i think its reading incorrectly, i have 3 fans including the cpu fan, i also have an AMD HD 6770 but its 1gb
sorry im a tard when it comes to this shit sometimes, i know a bit, but not everything
Ok, well next time you go by Microcenter and have some ~200 bucks go get yourself a R9 280, you won't regret that.
Anyway, try to get the software and do the benchmarks that will help see if the sensors are really broken. Post the realtemp readings before and after.
heres the results from the XS bench on realtemp, all temps were around 34C
temps maxed at 60C before i stopped, ran for about 8 minutes
running MSI then going for a smoke
There is a part called msi kombustor, there you will just set the resolution, run it and then check the temps after ~5 minutes.
Also pls screenshot the RealTemp readings, you can't see the temps in p95
okay ran it for 6 minutes, no abnormalities in temperature, gpu stayed at 45-50 C range couldnt take screenshot because when i stopped the stress test it didnt show results, cpu temps went up to about 40 C
anything else you need to know? it was at a load of 804 MB out of 2048MB
Ok, this is really interesting. Definitely a broken/'confused' sensor as it appears your PC is very well ventilated. 60C in p95 is really impressive.
Are you aware of any power spikes or such? Too much strain on the mobo might cause this.
One last thing comes to mind: check the temps in BIOS. The measuring programs can be thrown off by multipliers and other settings.
But as long as everything is stable and the temperature doesn't increase rapidly under load (did you check that?) everything is okay.
no power spikes and my temps max out at around 50C on cpu if im running a heavy amount of shit at once, but it is gragual, not instant. and everything is pretty stably as far as temps/performance goes
is she gonna be okay anon?
>it appears your PC is very well ventilated
the origional rig, kept everything the same besides the gpu. sometimes i leave the plastic/plexiglass off while i game, not because it overheats, but because i dont want to even risk it, ive never owned a real gaming rig, so i treat it like a child. lol but yes it is well ventilated even with the case not open
