Overclocking 1090t on this motherboard

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a asus M4A87TD EVO motherboard and a 1090t processor, my mosfets are NOT heatsinked, the VRM list on this site posted by reflex99 shows that it's ok for 140watts+. My questions are, do I need to get some heat sinks for my mosfets to get to 4 ghz, Is the thermal tape on enzotechs permanent or can i remove them if I want to, and is the corsair h60 likly to cool this processor at 4ghz with a decent amount of headroom?

yes, your going to want to add heatsinks to the motherboard and i'm pretty sure that you'll be able to pop them back off even though i would just leave them on anyway. the corsair h series coolers are good, but most of the time to get 4ghz you'll have to add better fans than provided. unless you have a good chip that will get 4ghz without much voltage.

These are the Mosfet coolers I use.

yep that all helps, guess ill be getting the heatsinks with the cooler, i've got good airflow in the case as is, two fans on the side blowing right on the motherboard so i'll just add the heatsinks and should be good to go,, i was just sitting here worrying that if i put the heat sinks on, i couldnt take them off if something goes wrong, or i go to see the computer or anything like that, i've heard horror storries of pulling a mosfet off with the heatsinks.

Putting some MOSFET cooling on there should help a lot at keeping the temps down, esp. since you are using an x6. An ASUS board will throttle the CPU if the VRMs get too hot.

throttle the cpu.... so in general I shouldnt have to worry about mosfets self destructing? Course i'm still gonna wanna play safe because this is my main computer here but just trying to make sure I understand what you mean.

No, it's very uncommon that an ASUS board of the new age takes a blow, because they feature proper VRM protection techniques

SWEET, thanks again to all of you ,+rep all around, I always liked asus, this just makes me like them even more! still think i'm gonna play it safe and get heatsinks just in case, but nice to know its not going to kill itself if i didn't, i hate to feel stupid, but i gotta ask is the spots i marked in red on the attached pictures the parts i'm wanting to heatsink, or did i miss something, dont suppose someone could mark everything i'm gonna need to heatsink to get a decently safe overclock

Those should do it, but if you have extra HS's or don't mind getting another set this is what I did for added safety on my back up machine.

Ok new question should i get the h60 or wait for the h100, i dont plan on going any higher than 4 ghz, if the h60 will cool it and give enough headroom for comfort i will go with that, otherwise ill wait another paycheck and get the h100, which should be overkill but thats ok.
