I just can't believe you had to experience that, it's a total bummer sadsmiley.gif

I'm almost apprehensive about accepting the replacement board frown.gif

IS Phenom 955 stepping 3

About this motherboard i had run it 4.0 ghz in 1 year with 1.4 vcore and northbridge 2.4 ghz. Is ok oc.
And i love MSi make Fake ATX motherboard. On length is ATX on side is MATX rely ***. With my new case the distances didnt even fit!!!!! Only some worked.
So i started overclock more because new computer case and new cpu cooler H60. I reached 4.3 ghz with 1.5 vcore, booted in windows smile.gif
Started up Intelburntest on maxium my temp was 57-61°C that was ok . After 15 min it shut down, it smelled like motherboard got burned.
The thing im mad about it didnt throttle or something. It runned perfect then just BB motherboard. I sended in warranty and hope i get a new motherboard back. Im done with MSI im probably take a ASrock or Gigabyte motherboard for my price range.

What you think ASrock 970 extreme 4 or Gigabyte Ga-990 XA or 970 A. Those all motherboard cost about same just the Ga-990 XA cost 10 dollar more then the asrock one. Im thinking about the ASrock motherboard because it got more FAn slot on it, the bad one is am going to overclock and it only have 4+1 phase. Help me smile.gif

Sorry for my bad english
OBS the computer wont start just the diod on motherboard flash 0.5 sec

I'm using the msi 760gm p33 with an amd athlon x2 250 overcloked to 3.75ghz with a 1.4vcore so far its been 5 months and all seems to be okay but you never know when something can go wrong. It's extremely sad to see hoe MSI as a brand is going down when mobos are concerned as i have a msi graphics card which is top notch. Anyway apart from all this i see that you have been listing the failures of different msi boards and i would appreciate if you could tell me or provide me with a few links showing the fail rate with this board with no overclock. The reason i am asking is because i was thinking of upgrading to the phenom x4 960t which is 95w and as you know the mobo is also rated at 95tdp,so how much danger will i be in if i use that processor with absolutely no overclocking based on the fail rate of this msi board. Any assistance will be appreciated!biggrin.gif

It's not so much about the board in particular having a specific failure-rate, it's more about design faults that MSI plagued almost ALL their 7-series and 8-series boards with. You should be good to go with the 960T, as long as you don't unlock and overclock.

I have a question for anybody you can help. I removed the heatsinks off the VRMs to the left of the CPU socket so I could fit my Thermalright Silver Arrow on my mobo. I was wondering if it would be safe to get a modest overclock (4.6GHz) without that heatsink on and without the VRMs burning up?. The mobo has 16 power phases for the CPU and my CPU has a max TDP of 95 W.

Any help would be appreciated.

^ I'm not so sure.  With the VRMs being a huge 16 phase and the power going through each phase not being very much, it might not be an issue.... but I would be sure and try to fit the heatsinks back on.  Some cooling is better than none.
