Hi Everyone,

Anybody else had a problem with a hot mobo chipset? I'm regularly getting shutdowns at chipset temps of +90C and I have to run the machine with the sides off and a house fan blowing directly on the mobo to maintain chipset temp of about 60C

GPU temp with housefan is easily 83C to 85C.

CPU temp with housefan  is 70C to +80C when running bitcoin 3.19 on generate coins.

I'm running:

142000 khash/sec
poclbm.exe
windows 7

mobo: DFI inc Lanparty DK790GX with stock chipset heatpipe.
cpu: AMD Phenom II X4 955
RAM: 8gb Gskill
GPU: Radeon HD 5770 (single card)
hdd: WDC Green 1TB
PSU: Antec Earthwatts 650W



Any ideas on how to get this temp numbers down away from 90C? Do you use aftermarket chipset coolers? Any of them good?

Please help!

Cheers!

underclock your gpu's memory speed to its lowest to shave a few degrees off. as far as cpu temp goes I would get an aftermarket cooler.

Thanks!

I'll give it a shot.

Try to take manual control of your chipset fan in catalyst. Push it to 100% and see if that makes a difference.

To me, it seems like your entire case could use a bit of an overhaul and some improved cooling.

Does anyone know whether it is possible to connect a fan from ATI 5970 directly to the power supply, by-passing the card? What voltage does it take (max)?

Probalby.. I also put some 80m fans on the backside of the card and that helped a LOT.
