Yes, look at the failures in that thread.

4Ghz with a 125W proc on your board = dead

The VRM thread says my motherboard has 4+2 phase count and "We recommend: 125W max, no OC". I'm guessing that's a no?
Yep, your proc (970) is 125W, so that's not a good idea to overclock on that board.

I think you answered your own questions

The MSI NF980-G65 is a board known for failures

Anyways this thread is old, ran its course months ago... if you have any other VRM questions to ask or discussions, make a new thread or discuss in an existing one.

Anyways, thread closed.
