there you can see it...there are 3 chokes with 6(7?) mosfets behind them, without heatsink...i got little aluminium heatsinks left, from my GPU-Cooler Morpheus..i could attach them with a Pad, always 1 heatsink for 2 mosfets...i hope i dont make any damage doing so. Theres only place for tiny heatsinks, the CPU cooler does not allow a big heatsink.
Seems to be a 5+1 Phase? The mosfets and caps should be decent enogh, at least the board is better than Asrock Pro3/Pro4 and it doesnt have any really hot D-PAk Mosfets...but its only got 5+1 or 4+1, not sure and like i said i dont like that some mosfets are uncovered.
Can i be sure that this things ARE even mosfets? The 5 small chips behind the 3 chokes on the right?
However, id like to go 4,5ghz and would like to use it at least 2 more years, as im still very happy with the CPU. The Damn thing doesnt have fixed voltage, only offset. For 4,5ghz i need an offset that results in 1,31V-1,34V under load....and thats not even prime stable, only 5 min, it crashes when the AVX-BS starts...but it would be stable enough for me.
edit: Anybody knows what the user -Sin 0822- is doing and why he didnt continue his Board-Breakdowns and Website? He put out some interesting stuff regarding mainboard components, but it looks like even his Youtube-Acc does not exist anymore
