Your board is a step up for sure from the MSI board, 2 extra power phases isn't much but it's more, and you at least have an 8 pin.

I wouldn't feel good about OC'ing on it though - not if it would be costly to replace.

If it breaks I can always get a sandy bridge biggrin.gif

But it has been playing bfbc2 for several hours the last day or two with zero problems. I hear 85C for CPU is fine, and the volts are super low at 1.17V. In fact I could probably drop the voltage with software but thats the lowest my bios allows above stock.

More than likely your CPU is fine,

you more than likely fired your VRMs on your cheap out mobo. You need VRM cooler on modern boards.

It may look like these

Mobo is last thing you would want to cheap out if you want to do some decent OC.

To OP: Your CPU is fine. It's your mobo.

Man that MSI mobo is a peace of s**t..

Look at that 3+1 phases for CPU:eek: with poor cooling..

And they`ve used old scool VRM`s on that too..

Same thing happens on MSI AMD mobos as they used 4+1 phases on their top end 890FX-GD70 mobs which ended up to blown voltage regulators when OCing PII X4 and X6 CPU`s..

You`ll be lucky if mobo hasn`t took your CPU down with it..

CHEERS..

Yah, I won't buy MSI ever again.

Also Asus did me wrong hard on the board I had to RMA, 2 1/2 months later I still don't have the board.

thanks for the replies, I wish I had saw the horror stories about the p55a-g55 before yesterday frown.gif

I got the mobo in a great deal like other people did and it worked fine for the month~ I've had it. Welp, time to get a new mobo then

Even if it was a basic P55 Chipset it should have not just fryed because you're overclocking though that board does look pretty bad.

The socket burning only occurs when really high speeds/volts are applyed 5.0ghz/1.6v sort of thing.

Intel i7 4790k @ 5ghz on H2o
Corsair Vengeance Pro - 32GB DDR3 - 2666Mhz
Gigabyte - Z97x Gaming 3
Sandisk X400 M.2 - 512GB
NAS Storage - x6 - 4TB WD RED
EVGA - 980ti SSC + Dell U2515H
Corsair - CX650M
