tried an experimaent with my much abused 955c3 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Shouldn't be pushing the voltage that far (~1.55V!?) on that board, sir!
125W processor + unheatsinked 4+1 phase + tower cooler + overclocking + heavy overvolting = DEATH SENTENCE.
I have warned thee, don't make me bring out the horror stories--

1.55v is nothing for Phenom II. I would feel safe running 1.6v 24/7 if the cooling could handle it.

However, I do agree overvolting on a 4+1 phase design with no MOSFET heatsink is just asking for something to melt.

Thanks Scotty i was hoping youd see this.I did not know that gigabyte ran that damn power profile i thought MSI was the only culprit that did that..
Well i am upgradeing when bulldozer comes.I think im going enjoy the cool temps.
So someone tell who doesnt use that 4+1 power set up for my next build.

Whether you have 4-pin ATX CPU power or 8-pin EPS CPU power does not say anything about the power phase.
There are 5 chokes (big black squares). Hence 4+1 power phase.
