this is interesting......

i emailed zotac about the mosfet temps on my H55-ITX Wifi and got the following:

Quote:
Hi,

Just an email asking about the Zotac H55-ITX Wifi

I'm running a i7 860 CPU in this board and it seems to run well.
My issue is that when the CPU is at full load there is an electrical smell coming from the cpu area of the motherboard.
i put my finger on the mosfets and was burnt by them.

i have since bought and fitted some solid copper heatsinks to the mosfets on the top side of the motherboard (am yet to do the ones on the underside)
Whilst running the CPU at full load now, the mostfets are still burning hot - maybe a fraction less due to the increase in surface area - but still VERY hot.

My concern lies in the long term life of this motherboard with these sorts of temperature (easily 90c + to burn me)
The motherboard is covered by your 5yr warranty but with these temperature i don't know if it will last that long.

I was wondering about during your testing phase of this motherboard how long it would last with the sort of heat loads that the mosfets endure with the load of a i7 chip.
The system it is running in is a very high end system - designed to be very small to fit into a workplace.
Specifications:
ATI HD5850 gfx card
Zotac H55-ITX Wifi motherboard
G.Skill 4gb Ripjaw ram
PSU is a Corsair HX-620w
Intel i7 860 (2.8ghz) CPU
CPU cooled by a Corsair H50 watercooling unit.

Everything is running fine but i'm quite concerned about the mosfet temperature, lack of a stock heatsink for them - especially for a motherboard certified for Intel i7 chips and its long term life span.

Is there any advice you can give me for this motherboard?
My past experiences with previous computer systems, hot mosfets = short life for a CPU and motherboard.

Looking forward to your answer

Dear Sir,

We are sorry that the H55-ITX specification is changed to not available for Intel i7 core processor. The Intel i7 860 could run on the H55-ITX board with full function. By the way, we find that the motherboard will rise to an unacceptable high temperature when the 860 has an extreme loading. This high temperature will damage the motherboard. Therefore, please don't use i7 processor on this board. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

B.rgds
I am now writing an email re compensation - if the board cannot handle what it was advertised (initially) i want something.

if i was to sell the 860 and buy a 750, id lose a large chunk of cash.
and i waited an extra 2.5 months to get the zotac board over the dfi....

anyone like to add to what i should say?

im running my 860 regardless......

see if i can get a 750 out of them - then that will kick start my other mod (my lian li)

anyone want to add to my response - as it is atm:

Quote:
So this board is likely to fail running my cpu in the future when it was advertised as compatible.......

if i was to sell my i7 chip off and buy the top end i5 chip (i5 750) i would no doubt lose money and loose the additional processing power of the 4 additional HT cores.

i also waited an additional 2.5 months in order to purchase this board over the DFI board
