Hot new build temps

glassjawed

15 months ago

I just finished my first build it is an itx. Not overclocked at all. I ran benchmark tests on it and the temps are pretty high, especially the vrm is outrageously high at idle. I couldn't run the stress test on AIDA64 for 5 minutes before the cpu hit 93 and I shut it down. however the vrm actually cooled down from 107 to 103 during the stress test strangely. Below are the parts, however, I didn't have space for the fans in the case so right now the only fans are the cpu cooler and the stock fans that come with the psu and gpu however the psu fan mostly doesn't run at idle. Is the problem that my airflow is messed up and I need to figure out how to get the 80 fan as an intake? Or is there perhaps some issue with the motherboard or how the cpu cooler is connected to it? I upped the cpu fan to performance settings in bios. I would appreciate any advice, thanks.

Double check the Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 installation.

Specifically what, too much or not enough thermal paste?

Make sure it isnt loose. If it isnt seated good it wont pull heat out of the cpu correctly. For VRMS and probably the CPU as well if you have no intake fans your airflow will be terrible. Try some slim fans if you don't have much room to work with for intake.

I took off the cooler and reinstalled it, there doesn't seem to be an issue there. The vrm is still running over 100 at idle. Could it just be airflow or is there possibly a problem with the mobo?

On a stress test with Aida now where it runs the cpu at 100, the vrm stayed at 108 but the cpu shot up to 94 after 1 minute, cpu diode up to 73

Its probably airflow in the case. If the VRMs aren't getting any air they will run hot.
