Heatsink help ! - Page 3

How are the temperatures?

Also i'd like to point out, the VRMs are a 3+1 and unheatsinked... and your processor is a 125W, max TDP on this board. I'm not entirely recommending you OC on that motherboard, likelihood is you'll get thermal throttling due to VRM overheat, way too often, which may end up ruining the OC. I also recommend you stay with the stock cooler or anything that blows down on the motherboard, ensuring the VRMs get cooling. Most aftermarket tower coolers blow above the VRMs and not onto, so they don't get any cooling.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about... see link "About VRMs & MOSFETs" in sig
