Phenom II 560 Unlocks however... - Page 3

post #21 of 35
I'm running on a backup drive due to someone downloading something containing a boot virus in my household >.< So i wont be able to SHop circles on to them
anyways the VRM should be the black squares on its left side. the ones that look like they say "1R1" on them

I've never heard of heatsinks for VRMs redface.gif

Just to be safe I will apply a C10 heatsink to every electrical component and submerge the thing in refrigerated mineral oil.

Seriously though, I put the C10's on the 8 MOSFETS located near the VRM?
Am I missing anything?

Those are the MOSFETs that need the heatsinks on them.

However, it's already been stated, and you'll likely need to chuck an Antec Spotcool or ghetto a fan onto that area to directly cool it, otherwise you will need a better board my friend.

Download HWMonitor if you aint already, what're your Load temps on that when stress-testing?
Your idle temps are fine, but depending on cooler, the load Temps could be anything 10-15c+.
I'm also going with the VRM's overheating and OCP kicking in with the rest of the guys, but I am curious as to your load CPU temps.

I have not stress tested it per se because of it shutting down near cpu idle. I wouldn't feel comfortable even trying it without the extra copper and fan even with the OCP. Once I apply the C10's and fan I will see if the system remains running for a few hours. Then I will begin some tests and post. Thanks again!

The Enzotech MOSFET heatsinks won't help much, you are still running a low quality 3+1 phase and that is the limitation. They will likely continue to overload, overheat, and thermal-shutdown.

Yea, I know, but I will give it a shot. How the heck can they put 6-core ready on this crap... LOL

Would you recommend me a better uATX board around $100 USD?
Please??
post #28 of 35
ASRock can be rather ridiculous with their ratings; they consider a 2+1 phase board 125W ready and try to market it as an unlocking board (unlocking significantly increases power consumption). More like putting your hand into a campfire on purpose.

At least it had OCP that is their insurance I suppose. Do you have a board recommendation? Anyone? I'll check the egg place. I know uATX are not known for their wonderful power phases.

Assuming you've already ordered the VRM heatsinks, the

should do quite fine a quality 4+1 phase with cooling is actually all you need. ASUS boards always usually feature OCP too. This is $70 shipped and well within budget.

Also, note as moderator: you can use the "Edit" button on lower right to add another message to an existing post I have merged those two in a row.
