Hi, I just finished my first build and it went fairly well. I decided to try overclocking for the first time and I've gotten some confusing results that i could use assistance with.
The relevant hardware for this build is :
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
MOBO: MSI 890FXA-GD7
Cooler: cooler master hyper 212 plus
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
GPU: ATI Radeon 5850
PSU: Corsair TX750W
I'm using CPUID HW monitor to check temperatures. Under temps i have CPU, TMPIN1 and System with 3 different temperature readings. After searching around I came to assume that TMPIN1 is the NB. TMPIN1 is always the highest temp. When the cpu is not OC the idle temp is about 47-50 C. When I OC manually to about 3.2 ghz the temp went up and when i used the mobo auto oc feature which drove the cpu to about 3.5ghz the TMPIN1 temp was approaching 80 degrees.
My questions are:
Is TMPIN1 in fact the NB?
Are these temp readings normal?
If not. What are possible solutions? I already have 3, 200mm fans (2 intake, 1 exhaust) and one 120mm fan (rear)
I also just want to mention that I'm currently living with no air conditioning in a location thats in the middle of a heatwave, I of course know this will impact results, but would it be to that much of an extent? All other temps seem fine.
