Whats wrong with that =O it doesn't really heat up at all or anything when on load its like 10c cooler than the cpu which is about 34c

Because some of the MSI 4+1 boards have caught on fire. Usually started at the VRM's, which you cant read temp on. Not with software anyway.

Quite a few documented cases here on OCN.

Those were with Thubans.

are these the VRM's I put some little things on them to make sure. I touched them and other things only the SB felt kind of hot which was warm to the touch so probably 90F or so everything else was cool except the GPU since its always running on max performance =D gpu gets the hottest on idle but stays the same on load.

also the if those are the VRM on my board which i'm quite sure of their's a case fan blowing air into them its about 140MM running at 2200 RPM =)

Ok so I've been running prime95 for a few hours now the max temp I've seen was 55C with the fan on the highest.

Here's what works on my 965 * 140watt* lower the ratio on the ram to where it runs at 1333, up the voltage to 1.48 on the cpu , htt link speed 200 , 20x multi . It'll do everything I've tried but prime 95 at those settings. Just a point of reference

Fixed. See list of horror stories in my article. It's happened so often it's not even funny. It doesn't have to happen at high voltage either, sometimes it happens at 1.4-1.45V. Not necessarily Thubans either, it can happen with any 125W processor. Many of the more recent cases have been with x4s, or x2s unlocked to x4s.

Those big black squares are the chokes, mosfets are smaller ones on mobo just above that (in that picture). They get the hottest.
Air cooling and VRM heatsinks on MSI boards... don't necessarily help. A lot of them with VRM heatsinks (i.e. notorious 890GXM-G65) have blown anyway.

Not trying to necro but since im the OP and what this guy said I guess it might of happened but not for me I never bought the VRM Coolers now running it at 240 Mhz FSB , x 17 4080Mhz ram at 1600mhz which is what it's supposed to be at anyways 1.5V for CPU 1.65V for Ram, no heat problems what so ever JUST NOISE but after 6 months of listening to this jet I finally ordered a Water cooling system
No sorry it didn't catch on fire =(
it's stable at anything below 4.2ghz on stock HSF wonder how high I can get with my water cooling system
