  • Re: Need Advice: To Under Volt, Under Clock for Cool Constant Summer running

    Seem to have fixed the overheating CPU by dropping the +VDDA voltage from 2.8 down to 2.3 or so. Big difference in temperatures, down in the low to mid fifties after long gaming. CPU fans initially helped, but dropping the +VDDA voltage was mostly the issue.

    I seem to have fixed the CPU heating up, by: 1. Disabling one core out of four. 2. Downloading Asus Fan Expert, and adjusting CPU fan RPM's via PWM on M'board. My temps went down dramatically. I will re-enable the 4th core again, now that I have gotten my temps down (34c after CS Global Offensive).

  • Need Advice: To Under Volt, Under Clock for Cool Constant Summer running

    Hi All, This is a querry for undervolting, underclocking, and low voltage and even lower speed settings in order to reduce heat in my system for the coming summer, so I can run the system during most of the hot summer ( I will shut it down during heat waves etc) without worrying about overheating while I listen to music with it. I'm running an AMD

  • Re: North Bridge Overheat! Oh No......

    I actually have the machine running on it's side, so that the top fan is really the side panel fan facing up. This is because I live near a freight train track, and it rumbles the house, and with a heavy CPU cooler on the board, I get nervous it could rip my motherboard. So, on it's side, the cooler presses down like in an HTPC case. I have

  • Re: North Bridge Overheat! Oh No......

    I'm running core temps, and OCCT right now, gonna download prime 95 and see what that's all about. Marco so far seems right, because the M.B. temps have been stable for over half an hour at 34 C, CPU at 33 C. Of course I haven't loaded anything down yet though. The board is new basically, and the N.B. heat sink seems nice and tight, and

    Hey, thanks a lot. I will get to that stuff, I'm running my old trusty tried and true XP Pro Dell Optiplex 740, for a bit, been kinda busy. I'm gonna download hardware monitor right away when I boot that new system back up though. I should have thought of that, I've run it daily on this Dell for months or more, duh.... Prime 95 and OCCT

  • Re: North Bridge Overheat! Oh No......

    Thanks a lot for the reply. I did run memetest from a live CD, but only two passes, I plan to run at least seven passes, and, if any errors are found, then test one dimm at a time.I also downloaded OCCT like you suggested. But have not run it. Marco may have something there with PC Probe falsely reporting temperature, because after I shut it down, I

  • North Bridge Overheat! Oh No......

    Howdy Folks, I had a sudden warning of 128 degrees MB temp from my Asus "PC Probe" monitoring software on my Asus 880G M'Board, while I was only browsing online. I shut the system down right quick, and "Googled" North Bridge overheating (on my old PC). Nothing decisive found. It seems though, that if I under volt the North Bridge

  • Re: Tech Question:Sound card power connection mistake

    Thanks. I got it solved. I threw it in an older system without the power connector, booted up, then loaded the driver. I then was notified by the Asus software to connect power to the card. Which I did after powering down. Powered back up, and it works like a charm.
