Thus the power draw will be 132watts I believe, and is likely needing 1.425 - 1.5volts to hit 4ghz.
I dont have cpuz shots but we needed 1.5 to do 4ghz 12 hours prime blend stable. This was done with an h50 cooler.

Nice try, but that's not really the board for the OP.

The MSI board above looks to be the only "enthusiast" option, and if you are intending to run a PhenomII x4 overclocked, this looks to be the only real option.
If you want a mATX board with more than 4+1 Phases, 4 pin CPU power, and mosfet heatsinks, you might as well just pick up an intel board.

All the AMD ones have 4 phase powers, and only a few have heatsinks and an 8 pin CPU power.

8 Pin & Heatsinks
Foxconn A88GMX
ECS Black Series A785GM-M
MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3
JetWay JHZ03-GT-LF

4 pin & Heatsinks
BIOSTAR TA890GXE
ECS A880GM-M7

8 Pin & No Heatsinks
GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-UD2H
GIGABYTE GA-880GM-UD2H
JetWay JMA3-880GP-LF


I might have missed a few but there's a list categorized.

Sorry for the bump, just wanted to chime in again. I bought both the Foxconn A88GM Deluxe (Not listed in the list above, so here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...oxconn%20a88gm) and the Biostar TA890GXE. The Biostar, although only a 4pin power, works pretty good so far. More BIOS options than the Foxconn, and very easily unlocked my cores.

The Foxconn A88GM Deluxe does NOT come with ACC... the GMX does though.
