MSI 870A-G54 not working?! - Page 2

voltage is not everything. # of cores also affects power draw/VRM stress. a 125w X6 will be A LOT more stressful than a 125w x4.

The only incidents that i have seen involve X6's being highly overclocked on 4+1 boards. If you can show me one where there was a problem at stock, i will be impressed.

10ish people != representative of an entire user base.

For reference i run a 95w X4 (stock speed ofc) on a 3+1 phase board (MSI), been running fine for 1 year non-stop.
Have to agree with you there.It is always the guys trying to overclock an X6 with either no VRM cooling or little or no airflow over the VRM's.4 phase works fine as long as it doesn't get too hot.

Ask dixson01974.
He was running this same board (or was it an older 770 chipset variant - not that different) with x4 processors at stock. 125W. That's right, x4 and not even x6. And at stock speed.
Mosfets have caught fire for him. Two times.
95W for a 3+1 (limited to stock speed) is just fine, just as most of the time 125W + 4+1 at stock speed is just fine, but without mosfet cooling and combined with a board of the MSI brand, you're almost begging to get screwed over.

Gotta agree with these other guys, I have only been part of this forum for a few hours and have read MANY responses from you complaining about the mosfets on 4+1 power phase MSI boards.

Are they really that bad?

Yes, they are that bad. 2 boards blew up on me with my x6 1055t, the first I overclocked and the second was stock. I'm on my third one now but I have a "backup" motherboard ready to go. RMA each time.

Kingnog have I added your results to my list yet? Do you have any more details for me i.e. exact board?

And yeah, the list has gotten long lately. It doubled in size over just February and the few weeks of March so far.

LOL !
Do like i do ,get a Gigabyte as a back up.
When one of the MSI mobos fails i have that one to be swaped in.If it happens that the Gigabyte to fail i ll put the MSI that arrives and so on
Anyway having a back up board is good this times ,luckelly i did not have to whom to sell the 770-UD3 If i would have sold it i would have needed to buy another back up board (maybe some crap)
Try and switch to something better ,non Nikos based

Hmm... I have had this motherboard going strong with my overclock for a couple of months now with no issues. I guess I should knock on wood because it would seriously suck if my motherboard all of sudden died on me. I did have issues with the motherboard not booting properly when I first installed it; but it turned out that it was a dying power supply that was causing the issues.

How did the NB cooler fall off?
