Thread Starter 
Thank you for the replies and I will get the new cooler asap and wrire back as soon as I get it. Evo sound good, its around 35 euros here but thats an ok price I guess. I'm sorry for writting a new topic, I've seen other ones but no computer is the same and thats why I posted a new thread. smile.gif

I think he was just hinting to the reputation of MSI boards being bad for overclockers a few years back due to their VRM and mosfet design. Your board has better VRM and mosfet drivers, and a decent heatsink for them (make sure it is secure) so you should be fine. Here is a link to what I'm referring to. Here is another.

Again, dont worry as your board is fine. Make sure you use a temp monitoring programming when testing your overclocks, and stop testing if your CPU starts to sit above 55C.

Not too scare you off or anything but my last MSI board also had oc switches and things and it still fried. Yours is one of the better ones though, you should easily be able to oc to 4ghz without any worry of damaging your board I would think.

Agreed. Do not use the switch. Doing it the old fashioned way will acheive better results and lessen the chance of frying something inadvertently.

WATCH OUT when overclocking that board, it looks pretty but she gets HOT. Keep an eye on the VRM/Mosfett cooler, my old 990fxa-GD80 use to burn my finger on touch. Also vdroop was very bad on the GD80 too, no LLC options .
