AMD FX 8370 on Giga-Byte GA-78LMT-USB3 can be overclocked? PLZ HELP - Page 3

According to this chart you have the only version of that board with a VRM heat sink. http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboard-vrm-information-list

So you are lucky. Watch your voltages and temperatures and you should be ok with an average overclock. You probably do not want to go past 4.6 ghz. Use HWINFO64 to monitor voltages and temperatures while running a stress test.

This is the best stress test for now as it is quick and easy to use. http://www.overclock.net/attachments/13202

Still need to check what version I think it's like Rev 5 or something
Rev. 5 and 6 are the best 2 rev of this mobo.

Yes one of the Giga-Byte 4+1 power phase as heatsinks for the VRM.
Most people don't know is that a 4+1 has the max power ratings of 140 watts. There is only 1 4+1 that is higher than that.
I wouldn't push the cpu voltage pass 1.4v on that mobo.

That's a fun board to mess with. More stout than its specs would indicate. I've had a dozen or so.

I've had the best stability with Rev. 5.0 but 6.0 I'm sure has had a few BIOS updates since I last used one.

Do not try to push a FX 8 core past 4.2-3 unless you get an amazing chip. I had an 8320 hit 4.5 once but it was the best FX8 I ever owned.

Fun board, cheap and a tad more capable than its specs would indicate. But do not think you're going to get 4.4+ out of a 6-8 core Vishera and you'll be fine.
