Which one is better?

I am looking for a motherboard which will overclock the FX-8350 up to at least 4.5GHz stable and not harming other components (want this build to last for some 3 or 4 years without major problems).

I have my fx 6300 oc'ed on the evo r2.0 board at 4.5ghz using a thermalright sb-e extreme air cooler with no issues, max core temp is 49ºc

Looks decent. It has a heatsinked 4+2 vrm phase so it should be ok.

Having said that, there were some vrm issues with thier A75 boards.

^^^^

I was looking at this board, but word was on this forum that they were catching fire. Literally catching fire.

Something to do with uber-voltage throttling in the BIOS screen. Maybe a BIOS patch fixed this but I was just looking at this board myself but shied away for this reason. I am building this for a friend and thats the last thing I need on my conscience.

So I went with a matx gigabyte board myself just for piece of mind. Pity, because the bitfenix prodigy looks like a sweet case and I really did not need expansion pci-e slots.......

check out the asrock ASRock FM2A85X-ITX thread on this forum for more info.

I think that I've already posted about this board, but I just wanted to clarify something.

I've got this board:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/

With some enzo tech heat sinks on the VRM's and I just wanted to know what exactly is meant by '140W' and 'OC with cooling'.
The CPU in question is a Phenom II X4 955 BE.
I will be using it in an Arc mini case with an H100, so 3 fans will be around the CPU area.

What would be the highest VCore you would put through this board?

The CPU has been OC'd in the past to 3.6GHz, but I've never really gone over stock volts, about 1.4V.


Many thanks.

By 140W its indicating the maximum TDP chip that can be installed on the board. Generally the higher this value the better as the board's power circuitry is built to handle that kind of load.
By OC w/ cooling, it means that the VRMs need a heatsink and sometimes a fan to help things along, as running bare will do anything from tripping VRM protection (which throttles the chip) to causing the mosfets to overheat and burn. I have to deal with the same thing on my board (run a fan over the bare 'fets) and it is enough to keep the VRM protection from tripping

As for highest vcore, i ram 1.5v through my processor on my board and it handles it well enough, vdroop aside. You should be ok to run up to 1.475 without worrying about the board burning.

Got a guy here on the local forum going all bananas about the AsRock 970 Extreme4.
According to him it's complete garbage and blows up when using a stock 965BE.
He's scaring a guy whos running a 955BE on it @ 4Ghz 1.45v into ditching the OC and the board cause it can randomly blow up..

Now, if this was MSI i'd agree but afaik the 970 Ex4 is a pretty decent 4+1 sinked board with decent components and should be capable to run any CPU at stock and a Phenom 2 x4 on 4Ghz?

Or is he right and is it a dangerously bad board.. Kinda like MSI tongue.gif

Never heard anything bad about asrock, the fact its heatsinked and i know several oc'ers with that board leads me to think its not the board at fault especialky at stock

Okay, I should have reported this a month ago when I attempted to overclock my FX-6300 to 4.1 GHz on my ASRock 970 Extreme3. Anyways for some reason the socket temperature kept throttling at 62 to 62 degrees C socket temperature, which is weird because the maximum safe socket temperature for FX chips should be around 72 degrees C and HWMonitor said that my CPU core temperature was around 52 degrees C during stress testing. No matter what setting I tried, it would throttle. Then I just remembered today that on this database it said my motherboard throttled FX eight-cores. So maybe the Extreme3 doesn't play well with FX six-cores also? I'm not sure if its just me though. Yeah I'm getting an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 and Corsair H80i to go for an overclock of 4.5 GHz for Battlefield 4 and Watch Dogs.
