Question on Volts/multiplier/fsb

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, I appreciate all the post last night relating to me NOT BLOWING UP my board, with the vcore increase on my el cheapo board. Are temps basically the enemy in all this? If you increase volts on a board with 4+1, you can basically melt your board....obviously this is due to running too much juice through the mosfets...right? But if i crank the multiplier in combo with fsb to where i can get a stable OC, temps won't necesserily go up at all or too much, right? Only when volts are cranked??

I guess, with my board, the best I should do is a stable OC with the volts at stock for this setup, via multiplier/fsb/and all that....just don't touch the volts?

"Running too much juice" through the mosfets (i.e. 15V instead of 12V) probably could kill it
What does in fact kill it is getting hot. Your 4+1 may not necessarily melt if it has heatsinks on. The low RDS/smaller profile also helps quite a bit. Upping frequency can increase power consumption without voltage increases, but voltage past a certain point is more of a heatkiller indeed. If you have around $10, see if you can order a mosfet heatsink kit (i.e. Enzotech MOS-C1) and you should be safe for moderate overclocks up to ~1.475V usually if mosfet heat doesn't prevent overclocking, unstable power delivery might (i.e. the mosfets may not necessarily be hot but are pushing too much power and therefore are more unstable)

I have gotten those same heatsinks installed. My volts are at 1.472, stock, so the next step that I can get it to is 1.50, 1.52. then 1.55. That is with Easytune 6, but I tried that last night (1.50)and was told not to push anymore and drop it back, considering the board I have. But the mosfets are covered.
