NOT. It's funny how these bad boys blow up surfing internet and you can get an ASUS board for cheaper and it still has much more features.

To OP, it will be safer with heatsinks(only slightly, since the VRMs are so bad), but there is no guarantee that it won't catch fire.

I have a fan blowing air over my MOSFETs now. Getting new CPU cooler and some MOSFETs might help.

Per my post above..MOSFET coolers are almost required if you're overclocking, wow they put out some heat!!
