Now, under the motherboard temperatures tab there are 3 different readings.
TIMPIN0: Motherboard Temp
TIMPIN1: CPU Socket Temp
TIMPIN2: Northbridge Temp
My question is:
- Is TIMPIN2 a socket temperature reading? or is it the actual Northbridge Temperature?
- Reason I ask is because TIMPIN1 = Socket Temp (which means actual CPU core temps are approximately 9-10c cooler). Which would just be awesome.
I own the Gigabyte 970A-UD3 motherboard and it was able to unlock the 2 cores off of this CPU just fine. I thought it was only the core temps that got broken when unlocking and never knew TIMPIN2 was showing odd temperatures of 12c when cores are unlocked.
Good thing I caught this today... Was running Prime95 earlier to check for errors but, I saw TIMPIN2 temps rising and almost shat myself
Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
EDIT: Woops, didn't see there were Intel and AMD specific sub-forums.
