View Full Version : At what temperatures will the VRMs on the VIII and IX Hero cause throttling?

I currently have a 6700K at stock, and an NH-U12S cooling it.

Attached are my temperatures after 15 minutes of running around Novigrad in Witcher 3. I'd like to overclock, but I've heard that VRM throttling can cause stutters in games, and I have been experiencing some odd ones. Do my VRM temperatures look good?

Assuming that SYSTIN is the VRM temperature, it looks fine.

I don't think these boards report VRM temperature.

Generally 130c. There should be a BIOS setting to raise it higher but I wouldn't unless you want to replace your motherboard.
