MA785GM-US2H mosfet sinks?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What heatsinks can fit on this board's cpu mosfet?
Alot of people say the little tiny ones but they ran out of em on newegg.
I also don't wanna buy 2 sets of those.

I wouldn't worry about cooling the MOSFET area other than making sure there is a fan in your side cover. I've had not one but two of those boards and one of them is sitting in the box having been upgraded by a better mobo. Both of my boards overclocked pretty well and unlocked a 720 BE to an X4 and a Sempron 140 Sargas to an X2. My advise to you would be to skip the cooling and get a better board when you can afford it.

i agree with microminime about getting a better board instead of modding your mobo. however, if youre like me and want to stick with ddr2's instead of spending $ on new ddr3 ram and mobo, it's a good idea to either have active or passive cooling on those VRMs.... or both it will reduce cpu throttle on our 4+1 power phase boards and make our oc's smoother.

you can get those enzotech mosfet coolers here: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/enmofocomohe.html

good luck

I stuck a Thermalright heatsink on the MOSFET's of my old Biostar 790GX mobo and it overclocked pretty well. However, considering that 4 Gigs of good DDR3 RAM is going for less that $50 I still think you should sell this board and get a better one. Get an ASUS with MOSFET cooler and 8+2 phase power and you'll be much happier. I just upgraded my game box with exactly that on an open box 790X/SB750 board for $65 and it runs great. I even got most of the accessories with it.

Those Enzotech sinks look pretty good.
