so i just got my mos-c1 in today and trying to put on my ga-880ga-ud3h. looks like there is 20 chips to cover, but i only have 10 chips. should i do place them in a row or go every other (one down and one across) so they make a checker pattern

Sorry for not noticing your VRM cooling post earlier.

I can't see how the MOSFETS are set up or what models Gigabyte has used, but it looks like you need 16 of those mos-c1 to help all the CPU related phases.

Your motherboard has mounting holes for a proper VRM heatsink, why have you not been recommended something in the style of a Thermalright HR-09????

EDIT:
You have to measure the hole spacing and component clearance before mounting a VRM cooling block like the HR-09.

I forgot who, but I believe a mod directed me to get the c1. I'm pretty sure there are 20 to cover. So covering half or 2/3 is not beneficial? All off them need to be covered? Don't know why the hr-09 was not mentioned. Its 4 clusters to each phase. 4+1

You might as well go all the way now you have bought one package of c1.

The most important part to cool is the lower 4 clusters as they feed the CPU.
The upper single cluster is for the memory controller and it should not heat up as much as the ones feeding the CPU core.

All four clusters for the CPU are stressed evenly, ignoring component variation, they will all need the same degree of cooling.
If you only mount heatsinks on one cluster, the remaining 3 cluster will still overheat.

Ty for the info. So just thinking long run-the coolers should be able to come off by pulling them off then scraping the tape it comes with off with a knife or flat edge? When I get a new comp some years down the road I would like to reuse the c-1 since they cost me a pretty penny :-) especially if I am getting 2x as many

You can remove the c1 with some care and a thin sharp blade. Don't cut the IC's or the bottom of the c1.

Be careful and don't worry about leftover residue on the motherboard or the c1.

Once you have removed all the c1, you can clean the motherboard and c1 with some patience and isopropyl alcohol.

You can buy new thermal tape later for little money.
I recently got some of this, works fine and should be available in your country.

If your in the UK their are a few sites such as scan.co.uk that sell them, ebay has them all over too

What about updating the database? I submitted my F2A75M-HD2 months ago, with pretty detailed info.

I'd like to ask how safe it is to overclock an FX-4170 on the ASRock 970 Extreme3? I will be using a CM Hyper 212 EVO. How much of an overclock should I be expecting? I'm aiming for 4.6Ghz, but I'd like to know if I can go higher. What precautions do I need to take? I know it only has a 4+1 power phase design, but then again, its the best 970 chipset motherboard available in my area.

I wanted to go with either the ASUS M5A97 or M5A97 EVO, seeing as both feature VRM protection, but both are sold out. The ASRock Extreme3 seems to be the only best option.

Hi guys, Just a quick question here.
I am currently using a amd fx-8120 on an ASUS 990fx sabertooth and i was wondering what the max temperature on my VRMS (vcores) is. I have my chip clocked @3.7 ghz and it seems like my vrms are getting a little toasty, 'round 68-70c. is this too hot, or am i within the limits? is it possible to replace my current heatsink with an aftermarket copper one?

thankyou in advance for your help
