Disabling Phenom II x6 turbo boost, - Page 2

post #11 of 16

The bigger concern with that VRM setup is that it is very low-quality.  A quality 4+1 phase could work but better would be great, more efficient and cooler.

ah thanks guys, well im glad I didnt just jump into overclocking and come home to a burnt down house.
so what causes this, I mean I understand its cheap components that cause failure but what is it about this design that makes it different from the other higher quality boards.
and Ive been over clocking on this board for years now could this have been a problem before even while running my old kuma 7750 and not even known it?
they are both 95w cpus and at one point I had the kuma running at 1.47v trying to push it which worked fine but wasnt as stable as I would have liked.
I guess I just dont understand what exactly causes the failures and why this chip would be such a risk over my old setup in which I had never had a problem.
again thank you for all your help, I just dont fully understand what causes the vrm failures.

If I were to keep the voltage stock and up the speed (which it seems these chips are ok with) is there still potential for failure or is it only when you start upping the voltage they have issues?

sorry Im still not sure what causes these failure can you please explain why they fail? is it the voltage increase that causes it or just the act of overclocking?

There is a slight increase in power.

Failure is caused by over-heat and over-capacity, both often a result of each other. Over-capacity is caused by not having enough capacity. i.e. lower phase count, 3-transistor MOSFET setups, like yours... low VRM quality in general..... lack of confirmed VRM protection

I know its been awhile since I had last posted, but I think its finally time to upgrade. That being said and given my current setup What would you suggest I do or I Should say what motherboard currently on the market would you suggest I purchase? I know I will more than likely be upgrading my ram and psu at the same time. Not really sure what mobo is going to be the best on a budget with this processor. Thanks again
