PC Temperatures

    I've recently replaced my stock CPU fan with Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer liquid cooler. Also, I've installed a couple of programs to monitor my PC temperatures. I'm currently using HWMonitor I've used another program to monitor PC temperature and it showed the same elevated temperature. I'm concerned with TMPIN1 temperature. It always seems higher than the others (right from the start up). I've trying to google what TMPIN1 is but had various answers. I'm thinking that it is some sensor on my motherboard and hopefully it is not a CPU.
    The motherboard I'm using is: MSI Z77A-G45 Intel 7 Series
    CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K BX80667i73770K Processor - Quad Core, 8MB L3 Cache, 3.50GHz
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670
    If anybody knows what the TMPIN1 is or any general feedback is appreciated. I'm including the screenshot.

      Oh thanks for the reply. Is there any way to cool it down? I was thinking if maybe my new CPU cooler is not working properly and causes that...

      Usually the northbridge is near the CPU and has a fat heat sync, you would need to possibly rig some type of air cooling apparatus to the area of it to assist in cooling. Second thing is not to overclock so hard, that is if you are overclocking.

        you need better airflow through your case. As stated above, its usually a heatsink and heatsinks work best when they have a steady flow of air over them.

          This is a common issue when watercooling. The CPU fan usually puts incidental airflow over the VRM/NB heatsinks. What watercooling does is takes away that incidental airflow because it moves the fans away from the CPU socket and puts them on the radiators.. What you need to do is put it back.

          You should actually be able to get more stable overclocks with a cooler VRM.

          Is it bad that I have watercooling and have those temps? xD

          What watercooling?

          If you have 240mm radiator then it is bad. You should re-mount the heatsink. Also, was that at idle? Also what is your ambient temp?

          It's the H80 watercooling thing for the CPU.

          Those are fine temps in that case.

          My gawd, you can cook a steak on that (DISCLAIMER: Please don't cook in your PC because it will smell yummy but will break momentarly).

          Better airflow helps. Making sure your fans aren't obstructed. Check if fan are dirty, more weight on fans makes it harder for it to turn at max speed. Open the side of the case and see if temperatures go down.

          EDIT: I didn't see the part of the watercooling...carry on. I will be here eating my tuna sandwich

            Yeah, I don't have too much space though. In total I counted 7 fans. Maybe I'll get an additional smaller fan that blows on motherboard.

            Be sure your wiring is nice and clean as to not disrupt the flow of air.

            Yeah, my case is a bit packed. The water cooler took a lot of space but I somehow fit all the fans I had. I haven't checked my temperatures before installing water cooler but I was lagging in some games and now it improved. Although, I noticed Ms Zimmy also has elevated TMPIN1 temperature.

            This is an old video but still relevant about how to reduce NB temps:
