Just because someone slaps a heatsink on the vrm's doesnt mean that it's safe for overclocking or even hot environments. To verify wether or not your motherboard has vrm issues, check here:

Your board seems to be ok.

I have an older MSI motherboard with lots of overclocking options, but if I were to overclock my processor, the vrm's would eventually smoke. Even with the heatsink that comes wtih the board, they simply arent designed correctly and still get hot. I had to add lots of extra cooling to keep from shortening the lifespan of my equipment.

If you're going to dump on someone's ideas, at least have some good ones of your own.

Yea thats why i said watch the temps... if it was a a4 or w/e at stock it wouldn't be a big deal most likely. I've heard ok things about msi's FM2 boards but there AM3+ baords are terrible vrm wise except a choosen few.

"Blue" alone means nothing, it all depends on the specific model and batch. The WD10EZEX is and has been a great drive for some time already, nothing should stop you from recommending it.

Yea, Ive had problems with pretty much any "simple" AM3+ board wether it be Asus, MSI or Gigabyte. When you try to serve a 100w or higher CPU on simple AM3+ boards, they usually run so hot that the entire system becomes unstable.

For instance: ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS with a FX-4130 is a bad combo even though this board is supposed to support 125w processor

well is a 780 chipset right... I would never reccomend anything less than a 970 chipset, for a fx chip, as they can be had for 60$ at micro centers and like 70-80 online

500AAKX. I used to order 6 of these at a time from Newegg. EVERY SINGLE order I would end up sending atleast 2 back due to failure right out of the box.
