OK Thanks. I was not aware that a 3+1 could not handle a 80W Phenom II X2 at stock voltage.

I dont doubt that the vrm's could handle that but you have to realize that with a tower cooler you have taken away all the air flow to the mobo. If you get an antec spot cooler that may help....

Okay guys, let me clairfy this. Your 3+1 should be fine with your Phenom II x2 as a dual core, stock and overclocked, due to the lower power consumption of just two cores. It gets finicky when you begin unlocking cores as that significantly adds to the power consumption, but that's about it. As a dual core it should be fine. In any case of overheat, the 880GM-LE is well protected by VRM thermal shutdown.

It should be noted that some people here are right, i.e. using a tower cooler takes away VRM cooling and significantly increases the heat output there. You did say you wanted to mod your main heatsink with MOS-C10s (I'm assuming the ghetto MOS-C10s on heatsink base method); if you have any spare MOS-C10s, you could perhaps use some on the VRMs to address that issue.

Its nothing ghetto at all...

(adj.) jury-rigged, improvised, or home-made (usually with extremely cheap or sub-standard components), yet still deserving of an odd sense of respect from ghetto dwellers and non-ghetto dwellers alike- Urban Dictionary LOL

I was hoping you would jump in. My thoughts EXACTLY!

xd_1771 is right, because I don't have a problem running a 6 hours stress test on a 3+1phase power with VRM coolers and with a 1090T at stock speed.

EDIT
The main thing you need to do is to keep those VRM cool.

Your posts don't make sense.

You suddenly talked about running a proc at stock speeds and stock voltage, which would obviously have no VRM issues, you changed the subject.

No one said you couldn't run at stock speed, what we were trying to say was if the wattage and voltage got high enough on an OC the VRM'S could melt, and it's much more likely to happen on a 3+1 Motherboard.

Yup, I was planning on using the C10's + a fan for cooling those fets.

I put it quite clearly.
