Yeah, it's actually never been used, and he bought it open box a few years ago because it's missing some screws. So basically I'm getting a new used open box setup. I will have to closely inspect the tubing for any sign of cracks but it's been in the original pkg so it should be fine. Thought about using the pump blocks with my 920 pump block to make a custom loop with micro res. I already have an asatek cpu/vga dual setup coming that I got off ebay for 69 bucks but the coolermaster may be higher quality and the res is bigger too. Thanks again, I'll get over to the h2o cooling threawds and see what I can find out on the specs.

I think there are two versions of the GA-MA78G-DS3HP. My board has 3 transistors per channel, and on the box is says 140W CPU support, but the Rev number is the same as on Gigabyte's site, v2.0.
On newegg the picture of the board also shows 3 transistors and 140W on the box:

From my experience (maybe just luck), you can safely do minor-moderate overclocking on this version, as long as you have heatsinks on the VRMs. I've been running my Phenom II X4 965 Rev C3 at 4Ghz for over a little over a year and have not had a single problem. Before I added heatsinks my VRMs were reading 70C (when overclocked), after adding them I haven't seen it reach 50C.

This is a pretty brilliant resource. Sadly my work machine has a mobo that isn't rated to highly.

I just got an x6 cpu for it and dropped in, x6 1045t 95w part, and the mobo is a GA MA785G-UD3H. The recommended support according to the chart in this thread is max 125w and no OC.

If I was to actively cool the VRM, and only OC slightly would it be fine? Seems like I have a little bit of headroom between 95w and 125w as recommended here.

Check out the 990XA/970A clubGIGABYTE has refused to add 125W TDP 8-core Vishera FX (8320, 8350 - just released) support to its 970 series boards lacking VRM cooling. Same with the 990FXA-D3.

Well xd_1771, you could actually be a PROPHET...lol. All was going sooooo well with my GD-80 until... I went to boot up after a couple hours of downtime and filter cleaning,etc. Went to boot up and the lights came on but nobody was home. Smelled something funny. This is on a simple "oc genie" overclock mind-you as I have been babying it since you warned me about the msi problems with 900 series mobos. After some investigation I found a black/brown burn spot about the size of a quarter inbetween the cpu fan header and the num 1 memory slot. Trial and error got it running again but not until I found out the cpu fan header no longer works and the first memory slot no longer functions either. She's running okay with my 920's 3-pin power header plugged into a secondary fan header and my memory in the other three slots (2 gig, 4 gig, 2 gig = 8 gig 1866) She still runs in dual channel and is okay but I'm waiting on my new mobo to put in it so I don't have to go without a computer while MSI sorts it out. I decided on the Gigabyte 990fx ud3 especially since the egg is giving away 2 4 gig sticks of geil memory with certain mobos...whew! Thanks again for the warnings as I don't know how bad it would've been if I was still running at 4.2 ghz!!! +REP for you if I could...

^ But that's not a CPU VRM failure >_>
Good indication of overall GD80 board quality though I guess? Or you were just using too many (or too powerful of a) fan on that one header, but I doubt it.
post #1067 of 1597
Yeah, it was just the simple 3-pin from the antec 920 closed loop cpu cooler fan connector which it instructed me to plug into the "cpu fan" header. It does show a very flimsy build quality or... well.... one COULD say that it shows how durable it is to still work after frying the cpu fan header and memory slot number one ... LOL !! I personally believe that it probably was a flaw but I am going to let MSI fix it up, then sell the repaired or replaced mobo. I am curious about that gigabyte quality and performance. I couldn't wait for it to get here to get my rig back together so I ripped the Fatality mobo outta "fatality scorpious" and have it running... with all 13 power phases ....well It may actually be 12+2?? Cant remember.

Do you guys think a FX6300 will be pushing it too much on my board? I know it's "only" a 95w TDP CPU, but, I heard these things under load get very demanding.

Opinions needed. thumb.gif

Well, I finally got the GD-80 out and put in an Asus M487TD EVO that I had from a previous sale laying around. I figured that I was living on borrowed time with the cpu fan hdr and #1 mem slot bn burned out. MSI is going to fix or hopefully replace it so I can get the v.2 version of the board.)might be 2.0 not sure) Just wanted to ask your opinion (if any_ on the build quality of this mobo or Asus in general. I haven't used them before in my machines(only fatality or gd80) Thanks again for the heads up on msi mobo's and the advice.Here's the replacement board:
