Help replacing MSI 970A-G43 motherboard withsomething better that allows overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello. I am having all sorts of troubles with my system (see signature) I suspect the motherboard is the problem. my memory speeds are terrible. League of legends drops to 40 fps or below... BF4 runs for awhile and (due to heat?) gets glitchy.

I suspect the problem is my motherboard.

Can anyone recommend a quality replacement that would allow significant overclocking of CPU and other components. My budget is between $50-150 the less expensive, the better.

I did overclock the cpu by changing the multiplier and fsb. the highest fsb used was 215mhz, and 20x multiplier. with vcore at 1.42v but the motherboard would easily overheat, one of the temperature sensors would reach 90+c then i would have an error. The cpu temp would not exceed 45C.

Is it possible that the 90+ C caused permanent problems with my board? I have only had the system a short time, it never ran league of legends as well as i hoped.


Here are my passmark.com benchmarks with the current system.






Thank you for your help!

Since you removed the stock cooler, have you replaced it's airflow over the VRMs with an added fan?

No i havent, but i have tons of airflow in the case. there is no heatsink on the vrms and even if i take a big house fan and put it right next to the tower with the side off, it still has issues with league of legends... surprising really. it may have wrecked the board when i had it overclocked. frustrating for sure.

That's very unlikely.

Have you tried looking at Windows Event Viewer?

For a new board the Asus M5A99X and Sabertooth series. Just pick the features you will need form the specs.

Everyone says you can't get to 5.0 with air so I'm trying the WCing setup in my avatar this week.
