I'f I'm right, there's no heatsink on your mosfet's? i used to have your MB before i sold it on eBay, It's not entirely recommended to overclock without a heatsink on the mosfet's but I can't say much because i was overclocking when i did have your MB xD

I'm still doing Prime95 testing on 3.4 GHz and so far, max temps are 47C for the CPU, 38C across all cores. Mobo is 26C. Are these temps safe? I might get heatsinks for the mosfets (and hope installation isn't a pain) sometime down the road as well as thinking of a GPU cooler for my 460's.

Max temp before meltdown of your CPU is 62C.

Mine currentley runs at 58C @ 4.27GHz 1.53V

But most would say they like to keep it 55C or just under, soo your temp's are just fine you could go further a bit more.

btw, do not read the CPU core temp's, read the CPU temp. The core temp's are off by about 10C which is wrong and the CPU temp is the most accurate.

And it's a must to get heatsink's on your mosfet's if you haven't got any if your overclocking

+rep for you, bro. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, I've read people burning their mosfets when OC'ing especially at higher voltages, so I'll keep mine on stock voltage (1.4v from what I've read on the BIOS) and just limit the overclock to 220 FSB, maybe try to push to 225 or 3.5 GHz when I have a chance.

Any recommendations for mosfet heatsinks, and a guide on how to apply them? Suggestions would be nice.

Thanks

And yeah, I was letting my computer do folding overnight just for stability testing and to put it to good cause and you would be surprised on how hot the mosfet's heatsink felt when i touched it, and it was hot hot hot! lol

And I'm not personally sure about Mosfet's heatsinks, I never bought any myself, I'm currently using a Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5 which has a heatsink running all the way round from the southbridge, northbridge than the Mosfet's.

You could possibley look on ebay for mosfet's heatsink? I'm not sure if they do some on there, or maybe some E-Tailers?

Yeah, I'll look for some in the future. Again, many thanks.

Anyone still wants to pitch in can join the fun! People who have experience OC'ing could give me more tips on this fun (and dangerous ) hobby.

Seems like my maximum OC is 3.4 GHz, any higher and my computer craps out. But I know this CPU can go much higher, and could really shoot for 3.6 GHz. However, my knowledge is limited to please bear with me.

1. Is a voltage increase needed to go for a much higher overclock? If so, then I still need to protect my mosfets from damage by buying heatsinks, right?

2. So far, I've only done FSB increases to get to 3.4GHz no problem. Should a higher OC require tinkering of other settings, like HT Bus Speed and Core Multiplier, CPU-NB?

Thanks all and have a great day.

It's advisable to put some heatsink's on your mosfet's as they will eventually burn out. You could just look up on some review's on the motherboard to see how high people have overclocked their CPU's safely.

And increaseing your northbridge speed up a bit should give you a little performance increase and help with the OC of the CPU and memory. My NB is currently at 2.8GHz to help keep my memory stable.
