Your VRM are to hot and board throttles down clocks. Put some airflow on it.

I use the zalman z9u3 case, and have 4 120mm fans installed, 2 front intake, 1 bottom intake and 1 top exhaust, plus the corsair H70 as an exhaust...
There is a space for another top fan above the H70 radiator, but it would have to be incredibly thin?

It should blow directly to the VRM heatsink.

yes, I see now, it's really hot to the touch. maybe this board is not going to be good for the new CPU's then, It was good for 3.8Ghz with the phenom 965, but thinking the 4+1 phases just aren't going to cut it anymore lol. well.... motherboard is next upgrade me thinks. Until then I shall just keep stock settings so as not to push my board too far.

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks Itomic for your great suggestion.

@PlayKitten - For a motherboard, you'll want to be looking for something with at least 8+2 Power Phase, to get good overclock potential without being limited by the board.

I'd recommend:
Gigabyte 990FX-UD5 or UD7
Asus M5A99FX Evo 2.0 (This is only 6+2, which will get you around 4.7Ghz, but it's a good board for the price)
ASRock 990FX Extreme9 (12+2 Power Phase)
Asus Sabertooth 990FX (8+2 - excellent cooling, super solid board)

Thanks for the suggestions, however, I've noticed the asrock fata1ity 990fx boards have recently dropped in price (presumably since extreme9 release). also 12+2 phases. Anybody had bad experience with this board?

quick update, I got the 990fx pro (fatal1ty) board, everything seems to be in order (once I figured out the correct settings for the memory to post my board). My issue seems to be resolved, so I guess you were right on the money with the VRM's being the issue. thanks for the help guys.

I have an M5A97 (first revision) and an FX-6100. I believe this board is a 4+2 power phase - what max speeds could I expect on my CPU from this board? I have been experiencing some minor stability issues around 4.4 - 4.5....

I can't wait until Steamroller comes out, so I don't have to overclock so much to get the performance I want! It should run on my AM3+ board...

Sorry for the late reply. This thread was getting pretty far down on my list of updates. I'm not certain how far the 4+2 Phase could push a 6100 but I imagine 4.6-4.7Ghz with good cooling.
