990 fx gaming motherboard having problems
« on: 14-September-17, 02:30:58 »

So I have
msi 990 fx gaming motherboard
16gb of ram
850 evga ps
9590 fx amd 8 core processor
1tb wd ssd

And my thing is I use my computer for gaming/editing videos so I'm putting my computer at high stress but it's handling everything pretty normal as far as I know.

My main concern is that it keeps shutting off after around 20 minutes probably due to overheating or max CPU and it shutting off. Everything is suppose to be compatible but I don't think my motherboard can handle the cpu itself, I've called msi and they told it should handle it but it didn't help me as my computer has been freezing and or shutting off not the bsod. If anyone can help me or send me some useful info on this be cause I cannot find anyone to ask this about. And I really don't want to buy any more parts than I have to thanks everyone!

your CPU as its a 220W part is very close to the limits of the VRM's on the board and i wouldn't trust that CPU long term as they are from a time when AMD where grasping at straws by just jacking up the TDP on there chips and massively overclocking them at the factory and run about as hot as a cooker!

you need a ridiculous amount of cooling on the CPU so what CPU cooler do you have?

also to keep the board from failing you need to be moving alot of air around the CPU socket area as just around it are the VRM coolers so have you tried having a fan pointing at the VRM heat sinks?

Due to the high TDP, please be noted there are limitations while using those CPU:(i.e. special thermal required..
FX-9370(FD9370FHW8KHK, 4.4GHz, 8C, L3:8M, 220W,rev.C0,AM3+)

So I have the water cooled nzxt kraken x52 simply because my computer wouldn't fit the bigger fans it had, but the radiators fan blow it out at the top and the other fan I have blows directly at the cpu from the back to it so all in all I have 3 fans but it's pretty strong and I set them on high just because of the cpu

can you monitor your CPU temps to see how hot it gets just before it shuts down?

main 2 you need to check are the CPU temp and the VRM temps if you can to see which is hitting max and causing the shutdown!

CPU will cause a shutdown at around 61C

VRM max temp tolerance is around 105-120C depending on what what type of DRMOS (discreet mosfets "are used as VRM's for fast current and voltage Regulation") are used on the board
