Thread: EP45C-DS3R NB overheat




  1. #11

    Question Re: EP45C-DS3R NB overheat

    I know Its been quite a time after i'm replying but here goes

    I've put 2 120mm 1 80 mm and 1 90mm Fans & its noisy but bearable

    due to the design of my box I've put 2 120mm fan in pull-IN config

    1 from front 2nd from side directly above GPU

    1 80 mm also in pull-in config above cpu

    1 90mm in push-out from rear

    also to mention there is 1 120mm fan in my VX450 which pushes out

    I also bought Tuniq Tx-2 thermal compound and applied in line method on my CPU (used Nailpolish remover to remove original paste, but the remover is fregrence less color less and vaporises with out leaving no patch or odor both on tissue paper and metal surface)

    and NB, but left SB as it is havein a pad


    and here are the results

    My room temp right now is 34.6 C measured from electric thermometer :D

    and my MB is in the open on my desk coz I'm testing and one ceiling fan is running over head




    primus is running good from last 45 minutes in Large FFT's mode on all four cores with error check enabled

    Any help in keeping the temps down will be appreciated

    And Thanks in advance

    Over an hour now Stable but temps are still 65-60-65-64

    Don't want to run it over 65 so I guess its on the edge

    Also I've applied the Tx-2 twice as on first run the temps were reaching 66 and above quite quickly so I stoped the tests on stock speed

    second time temps were around 62 on testing for 4-5 min so I decided to over clock

    I've also modified Smart Fan Config in EasyTune6 so as to make CPU FAN run at 100% when the temps according to ET6 reaches 41C which corresponds to mid 50's in Real Temp! so is this ok

    Pirme still stable temps ditto as above 1.3 Hr

    I guess its more or less stable

    Looks good, your temps are OK for your CPU that is still with the stock heatsink right?

    What is the system/NB temp

    Did you get a NB Fan or heatsink or not?

    Yes these are with stock HSF

    U said 65C is good? so till what temps is it still good 67-68-70?

    My NB temps are 49C max I did try to put an old P1 Fan on it but it made a hell of noise so i removed it still searching for a good one though!

    Also are my Voltages right?

    and My FAN config I know its not ideal but is it too bad and will cutting a hole on top and exhausting thru 120mm will be worth the efforts?

    Don't know about the DS3R, but on my DS3L, in Everest the motherboard temperature is in fact reading the SB, and not the NB. And even though the readings shows it gets pretty hot (41-42 at idle and 45-46 while gaming) that's actually not true. I think the sensor gets influenced by the video card, which gets pretty hot, because if i put my hand on the NB heatsink it's really cold, while the SB feels to get a little hotter. I've tryed lowering ICH voltage to 1.35 but the tempertaure drops only by 1 or 2 degrees at idle so i don't think it's worth it.

    Thanks morph 4 ur reply but in my case NB is really hot I cant put my hand on it for more than 10-20 sec

    these things do need active cooling

    Gigabyte should be doing it them selves
