Chipset Heating problem

iam using amd fx 8320 processer with azus m5a97 r2.0 mobo
on first i have used the m5a mlx v2 mobo with fx 8320 and the chipset are realy heating then some members of tom forum said that the mobo is not compatible with my processer so i bought a new m5a97 r2. and still the chpsets are overheating iam using a cheap zeronics 450 watt psu does thats the problem? which are the good psu in indian market?
Screen shot hwinfo
it shows 30+ after just starting my pc after turning it off icant even touch it we can fry eggs oni it :D

  1. Still No replay is coolermaster psu will solve this?
  2. sorry for no reply, the temps look fine?

    The toms forum users are completely wrong if they say that cpu is not supported on that motherboard (This one? M5A78L-M LX V2), proof here;
    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LM_LX_V2/HelpDesk_CPU/

    ^^from that list "FX-8320(FD8320FRW8KHK,3.5GHz,8C,125W,rev.C0,AM3+)", That's your CPU.

    Power supply is not the best, it is preferable you get a better one. Budget for PSU?

    A CPU cooler like a Cooler master hyper 212 EVO would do the most effect on CPU temps.
  3. a better PSU would help...and no 212 EVO is overrated...much better choices/options for just a little more....
  4. is it now?, the 212 is best value for money. Of course a little more you spend the better it should be, this is for a budget purpose only.
  5. dude for like $5-10 more you can get something that just blows the 212 EVO away....

    that is a good example haha.

    No, it is not.

    http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermalright-Macho-CPU-Cooler-Review/1449/6

    Doesn't appear to blow it away, the 212 EVO keeps the CPU 2 degrees cooler under full load compared to the Macho.
  7. The azus company says it will support but actuly the v2 board suppports only upto guys please check this

    and my old thread
    http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2127535/m5a78l-mlx-chipset-heat.html
    Iam using gskill 4gb ram(G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9S-4GBXL)
    The cpu i mean the Processer temp is ok i cant touch the chipset heat sink
    check this image

    the marked as one(1) is realy heating we can fry eggs after running pc for 1 to 2 hours :D
  8. I don't believe that crap haha, clearly the Macho is superior design, they probably didn't seat it right or apply paste worth a damn or something/bad case flow haha, dammit talking about 2c....a lot things can effect only 2c haha
  9. first link;
    Does not state it won't work

    second link;
    hey did not state it doesn't work, they just did not recommend it. It actually does work, though overclocking is certainly not recommended. Of course the motherboard you have now is better for that CPU.

    Well the heatsink is doing it's job, it will be hot.

    you don't believe true evidence? Saying something is one thing, showing proof is another. They were tested in the exact same conditions, and you said "you can get something that just blows the 212 EVO away...."

    also; "something/bad case flow" -Read it again, it was tested outside the case.

    Thermal compound, was stated to be spread evenly over the surface of CPU - though you can never do it the exact same way every time.

    Seated properly - Really?
  11. But uts realy heating man i think it will also burn the mobo :D
  12. Still the Macho is far larger/more surface area/size to dissipate heat......you would think anyways...

    great, now prove it with evidence.

    just how hot? Burning the motherboard will take quite some temperatures.

    You can mount small fans to those heatsinks if you wish, just to keep the temps down even more then they currently are.
  15. No I call BS look at that list again....The testing with the EVO and the Macho there was a damn 9-10c difference in room/Ambient temps...so no I don't believe that crap.... pretty minor anyways but still the Macho just looks cooler haha
  16. You referring to the room temp? That is actually to be ignored - as the temps would not be good enough to post due to accuracy, room temps varying from 27-14 degrees at testing time would not be accepted at time of testing. These were thought out before the test was conducted to ensure proper and more equal results.

    tests were done in same room and done outside the case, the EVO outperformed @ idle and full load.

    So now it's about looks?
  17. Partly haha, Still though they were not controlling/ giving any consideration in ambient temps....so that testing was invalid...
  18. 30C on "the chipset" is not a problem.

    The voltages from your power supply are OK.

    But 43C on the cpu could be unless it is a very hot day - 35C.

    How hot is it?
  19. 43c is fine....
  20. brothers
    the cpu temps are constatnly changing and its not hot i can touch it but after using 1 hour the chipset will be show 40+ degree
  21. There is no 'chipset' temp. The only temp to worry about is the cpu temp.
