For what you paid, it's great as it is. Although i have to say i am a bit surprised that it heats so early. On the Asrock 970 Extreme3, which is 4+1, i was getting 62C with 8320@4Ghz. Yours, even if with a doubler, has double the phases, so i would expect it to go to 4.4Ghz at least (with decent temperatures). Anyway, maybe Asrock messed up the design of the motherboard leading to even more heat concentration.

I think that if you manage to get the ASUS, you will be doing yourself a big favour. It's great looking and great overclocker for the money too.Edited by Undervolter - 7/8/16 at 10:50am
