Than you so much!

The red area is where you want to place the heatsinks...if you have any extra, the orange area would be nice to place them also..but focus on the red area.

Hi everyone,
I just had to come in here and post this because I have the same board and an unlocked phenom II x4 b55.

I am on stock heatsink @ 3.4Ghz
Same 880gm-le motherboard.
Never had the pc shut off on it's own or had any problems, even after hours of games that took my cpu to over 55c. 3+1 phase or not, it runs the quad core perfectly.

It doesn't matter if the board has 4+1 phases, what matters the most is the quality of the board. I had GA-MA790GP-DS4H that had 4+1 Phases it was able to run 1090T continuously @ 4.1GHz ~ 1.450v 24/7 then I gave it to my best friend.

I have not been able to isolate if the my CPU Phenom II 560 has defective cores as a Phenom II B60 or if thermal shutdown is occurring to prevent VRM failure. Supposedly my CPU has a 70% success rate of unlocking...
