Just no OCing on MSI boards period.

No, no, no. MSI boards are a big no for AM3. They have horrible VRMs and will pretty much catch fire if you try to OC. ASUS or Gigabyte will do.

Meh your temps are a bit on the high side, I run 4.0Ghz 236.8fsbx17 and my CPU won't load anything higher than 45c with an H70 (ambients in the 25c range). That being said I doubt any normal use will cause you to hit your 61c load and for a now $100 chip I woud just leave it.

I might note that there are huge problems on MSI's AM3 boards, the VRMs run really hot to begin with and fail easily despite cooling. There have been a couple failures on the NF750-G55 (speaking of which you'd be better off with any AMD 900 series chipset motherboard than this anyway); many of the boards will fail despite cooling (incl. the 890GXM-G65, a design supposedly using higher quality lower RDS transistors, and many people on the low end 870 chipset boards have experienced failuers with added cooling). I haven't seen many MSI 785G/880G chipset board failures (though there are a few) but I would say it's from infrequent use (I never see anyone on OCN using those boards, it's always the 870 or 890 chipset ones).

For more proof on the rate of failure see here and scroll down

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I read through the post. Would you suggest any specific MB? I see the obvious correlation with MSI budget oriented and failure, but I'm trying to find a board with similar pricing, SLI ready (75-150$).

Is the ASRock 970 Extreme4 within your budget range?
