    Reviving old thread to comment on core and socket temps. I've normally seen socket 8-10C higher than core and from what I read this is the norm. I started playing with digi+ power control entering higher settings. I see a increase across the board and core starts to meet or exceed socket temp. I saw a substantial increase in idle temps, I have backed off and as I have the spare time well change one setting at a time and see what happens with temps.

    Hows the new chip bigpop?

    Cool, thanks madcrate. Actually I still haven't installed it yet. Y'know how it is when life gets in the way. I was planning on giving it a go this weekend. I'll let you know.

    If you put a fan over the VRM's, this will lower socket temp's from 5 to 10 degree's lower than core under load.

    I have 2 50mm fans on the back side off the MB tray, plus heat sinks on the 11 small chips on the back, plus EK mosfet block. VRM, NB and board temps are very low but you still are going to see a increase in vrm-nb temps as you push the digi power settings.

    These temps are after a hour of p95 and furmark burnin.


    After a 20min cool down.

    More power more heat. What voltages are you pushing through the cpu and cpu/nb on that 9590? Temps look really good though.

    Finally got the new 8350 installed last night, and let me just say wOw! What a difference a bad (or good) chip can make!

    I'm currently running 4.8ghz @ 1.45v in BIOS. 300mhz Bus, 2400 RAM, 2700 NB, 3000 HT. The board is all on default voltage. I haven't done a lot of stress testing yet but I was able to get through a set of Prime95, which is infinitely further that I could get on the last chip. I thought I lost the ability to stay @ 300mhz FSB a few BIOS updates ago, but it looks like it was the chip that was holding me back.

    Previous chip, every 3rd reboot would produce a black screen/no logon screen, reboot again and it would be gone. With the new chip I must have restarted about 10-12 times in a row just to test that. Not a single black/no logon screen.

    I can't wait till I have a good block of free time to really try and push this bad boy.

    Sounds like you drew a straight flush in the silicon lottery.
