That board LOOKS to be what, a 4+1 or a 3+1?

Either way, the 550 isn't very power hungry at all. If anything, throw some VRM sinks on it, and have at it. Just keep it locked down as a dual core, and it should be fine.

My opinion.

+1.
550 is 80W, and the mobo is 4+1.

Very unsuitable, it is a 3+1 with super low quality. I can't see how it could be built for any 125W operation.
As long as the 550 is locked/not unlocked to 4 cores you will be okay but I do not recommend upping it too high above stock, i.e. stay below 1.475V. You will want to get some cooling on there for safest possible operation.

Which is exactly what I just said 2 posts earlier. Just with less fear being put into it.

That board will be just fine for a locked down dual core. Especially if he puts $10 worth of VRM sinks on it.

Mkay. I'll do that. ^_^ It never goes above 47*C under full load if that means anything and I found that 1.475v is plenty for a stable overclock. Can you guy point to the VRMs for me on a piccy of this board so I know what to put the heatsinks on? Don't wanna look like a n00b. XD

How is it 3+1, when I see 5 chokes on it?

the most left one is for the northbridge (that's not counted), so the cpu is 3+1. (3 for the cpu, 1 for the imc on the cpu). there is also one next to the ram slots for the ram, also not counted

you can also tell by the capacitor pattern (between chokes & socket) that it is a 3+1 (2 capacitors/choke/phase)

I've gotten the word from Tator himself. Though I heard this months ago, I wasn't actually able to confirm it from him till now. He has blown both of the recent MSI 8+2 phase boards VRMs, on a 965 C3 x4, at 4.4Ghz 1.45V. MSI being the least of our problems VRM-wise with these new boards on beefy 8+2 phases - unfortunately, certainly not. Looks like they have some serious work to do.
