Biostar A770E3 and G.Skill compatibility - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Have a look at the link in my sig (About VRMs & MOSFETs).
For 125W x4 processor, a quality 4+1 phase is considered a minimum for reliable, safe operation. For overclocking, it is recommended this be cooled properly.

That is some scary stuff. I think I should be okay (kind of?) for a short while though, because I'm not overclocking and using stock cooling... right?

Biostar VRMs hold up better than certain other designs. As you are not overclocking and using stock cooling, you will be fine using the A770E3 that way. However you do have the better choice of taking on the Gigabyte 760G (which uses a 4+1 phase setup) at no extra cost if you haven't purchased yet.

Yea, I had purchased the board before I posted on here. Thanks for the help though!

Hey, I notice that the chipset on the Biostar board is a 770, much older than the newer 890's and such. What is the difference? Am I at a disadvantage sticking with the old chipset?

The disadvantage is less new features (i.e. SATAIII and USB3)..... that's really it. Not a bad chipset really, not much different than the 870 or 970 in design.
