About VRMs & Mosfets / Motherboard Safety with 125W+ TDP processors - Page 77

post #761 of 1100
This is why I bought the Sabertooth P67. I've seen this guy with the VCORE temps at 100ºc and he is still running it fine (SingularityComputers) or something like that. Plus, the ratings on those chokes and MOSFETS at 120+ºc *drool* And I think ChipHell says it has 4 fets per phase or something like that.

PS
AM2 boards seriously suck. At least my M2r-FVM seriously sucked big time. It broke six friggin times at STOCK. STOCK. With tons of cooling.

BTW My VCORE temps never pass 60ºc. Which is Epic, I think.

Butter on Toast: VRM failures or unproven?
post #763 of 1100
I did 4.3ghz stable on my old 550 voltage was probably over 1.45~1.5
Playing some Cod4 and bam shutdown. Tried to start up fans light up and cpu smokes like mad.
Pull apart the heatsink and I see a mosfet with a massive burnt hole.
I still had 3 years of warranty left so I didn't bother with RMA and just continued to use it on 3.5ghz for another 1.5 years.

Here's a thought.

Some people do 9 12 24(insane) hours of stress test, %100 cpu which means %100 mosfet. How can you be sure that doesn't significantly lower lifespan of mosfets, etc. And people do this how many times ? Not talking about the cpu itself but the mobo parts that has to feed cpu. They never go %100 for a long period or at least breathe when you do nothing computer or turn it off. But 12-24 hour stress test ? Phew.

Aren't there some games which uses %100 cpu and gpu ? Yes there are but they never raise heat as much as those burn tests so it might not be as damaging.

as long as more heat/voltage is going through your pc parts, lifespan will decrease but not by much. you will still more likely have newer parts by the time your current parts die

btw gta iv raises my cpu temp more than stress testing

if your VRMs are at max capacity while only stress testing, you should invest in a better board.

Most likely VRMs. It's a 3+1 power phase board... jeeez. no solid caps, all with coils, iron chokes...
facepalm
Won't POST. But it's an OEM mobo. M2R-FVM

Explosive failure with an MSI 870-G45 with a Phenom X6 1090t at stock settings. Which I had seen this thread first, I'd have known that the "125W max" was a load of crap.
