TMPINS, explained pls

Hi, I have a fx8320 on a 78LMT-USB3 Rev6.0
I have a Artic Freezer aftermarket cooler. With 120mm fan @3165 rpm

My TNPIN Read at full load via AMD stability test at:

TNPIN0 31c
TNPIN1 57c
TNPIN2 71c

And my temps ‘package’ is 53c

Can someone please explain what this is and if it’s ok, and if not explain what concerns you have, thanks in advance to you lot :)

Cheers

  1. What program are you reading this from?

    Anything other than AMD Overdrive is not giving you correct values.

    Hey dude, i'm using HWmonitor, i'm worried my cpu is gunna blow up lol

    HW Monitor is useless on an AMD FX CPU. Those numbers are all incorrect.

    You need to download AMD Overdrive. It measures thermal limit. Thats basically the difference in temperature between what the processor is at and when it will throttle or shut down. So for example. 30 is good, 5, is bad!

    measure your temps on that. if at full load you're in the double digits, you're fine.

    - ok dude thanks, my thermal margin is 14c while playing. But when I did a stress test it said memory issue and potential hardware failure. I took ram out and swapped slots. Working again now. Not sure what’s wrong with it. Also my HWMonitor vintages seems all over the place.

    Do you know what TMPINS are

    Cuz 1 is at 30c when on load. 2 is 58c and 3 goes to 71c

    I have no idea what are...

  5. Again whatever those numbers from TMPINS are not correct. In overdrive I believe there is a proper spot to read the board temps.

    Your other problem is using a 760G based motherboard with an 8 core FX. Those boards are low end and are not properly designed to handle a 125w cpu despite what it says it can do. The VRMs get hot because they are too small and it causes instability. Thats your potential hardware failure.
