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