Gigabite motherborad ga-ma790x-ds4 overheating

hi,I have GA-MA790X-DS4 motherboard and keep saying is overheating but the thing is the CPU is cool,the memory is cool and everything is cool exccept the motherbord itself seems a bit overheating.I try search for a answer here and I can't find a straight answer.only gives the warning but I had a couples times it stop working without no reason but now Im afraid it can bur out one these days.can anyone help me with this I really apreciate.cheers

  1. Can you please download HWMonitor to check the temperatures and post the results. This should give a better idea of what is overheating. Have you overclocked anything on this computer?
  2. no I didn't but I will try HWmonitor and I will post the results.thanks for the reply
  3. here is the results:

  4. I see a problem with TMPIN2 at 84°C and FANIN2, which is reading 3013 RPM.
    Judging by the other fan PWM readings, I'm going to guess that fan 2 is the CPU fan. Is that right?

    In which case, it seems the CPU fan and heat sink are not achieving anything, hence the high CPU temperature despite the very high fan speed. That indicates to me that the heat sink isn't installed properly. Take it off, clean off the old thermal paste and apply some new thermal paste.

    All the other temperatures look normal.
  5. did you connect the cpu fan to the cpu socket also that fan 2 is system fan connector you should also see fans describe fanino 1 for main as cpu fan in hwmonitor then the other case fan fanino1 for a fan 1 channel then fanino for fan 2 connector check fan connector and add fan in case if you could
  6. thanks a lot, but if is like this how the heatsink is cool all the time or the CPU is hot,but it can't be possible without heating the heatsink?I will try to take out the heatsink, clean and put it back with fresh past and check for the connections.cheers guys and appreciated for the help,I will let you know when I finish by tomorrow.cheers
    PS-I check now and the second is like this Temperature 1 56°C (96°F) [0x24] (TMPIN1)
  7. at 56 if the system is idle your running high got 34 on my system and my tmpin0 is 39

    If the heatsink isn't making proper contact with the CPU then heat can't flow from the CPU to the heatsink, resulting in a cold heatsink and a hot CPU. If you haven't pushed in all the pins completely to mount the heatsink, or the thermal paste was applied incorrectly, you would end up with a layer of air between the CPU and heatsink. Air is so good at stopping the transfer of heat that any layer, no matter how thin, renders the heatsink useless. This is the reason for applying thermal paste.
  9. hi, I just done what you guys say to do,take out the heatsink and I put it back with new thermal paste and check the connections.I notest this heatsink only catch the middle of the CPU and is very short heatsink about 1.5 cm tall.I know I have done in a proper way like I have done other times but I just start my PC is still same way as before "the same Temperature.Can you check the heatsink and can you tell me what do you think,please?thanks ,I know is the cheap ones,here is the link.cheers

  10. this cooler is for basic computing same as the booxed one from amd where did you connect it and that 3 or 4 pins connector on the fan,you got also a connector to put add a fan for cooling the northbridge did you got other fans and where they are connected on board,.what is your case name and model
  11. cheers.What you trying to say is I have to buy a better heatsink?I have a second fan but I switch off because believe or not is not so hot with the second fan.The CPU fan I connect on the CPU fan in motherboard and the second fan on, I connect in the where it says normal fan. this is the case

  12. the heatsink is 3pins and the second is 4pin molex,I just bought a extention from molex to 3 and 4 normal pins so the pc can control the speed of the fan.cheers

    I have the same mobo and i would like to point out that you said you have 2 nvidia video cards, and this mobo seems to only support ati crossfire not sli without a bios mod and even ur HWpro spec out shows only your one card

    i think thats what it is showing, so that your cards are acting indepentantly, but one is not even installed? because i read that it will run both but no benifits of increasing single display performance.

    i am also very disapointed to learn that sli is not compatible as i just got a 2nd msi n460gtx cyclone 1g/oc and i cant run 2 untill i find a modded bios that unlocks nvidia sli on this board, if there is one out......if someone knows of a soulution to putting 2x nvidia cards in this mobo

    also this board pci-e first slot is 16x, and the 2nd slot is only 8x, still works crossfire but 2nd slot is only 8x.
