^ With the board really only supporting dual cores I don't think you are in any particular risk here.  If you are going to be using anything other than the stock cooler, then you should definitely throw some heatsinks on as otherwise that leaves the VRMs totally un-cooled.

I think i'll slice up one of those funky intel north bridge coolers with the really tall fins. The scary part is i would probably be the one to have some one mod in some micro code and drop in a 65watt tri core but, i have enough projects already. I'll stick to following the core 2 quad on intel 965 chipset thread.

I have an MSI 870A-G54 FX AM3+ board with a Phenom II 960T unlocked to 6 core and overclocked to 4.0ghz using around 1.45V. Everything runs fine and the cpu never goes above 50.c under load. I was thinking of adding some small copper heatsinks to the VRM's on the board or should I just look for a different board ?

different board would probably be best, but copper heatsinks can't hurt smile.gif

Just swap to a different board, heatsinks won't hurt but the board might just fail anyway despite due to transistor ratings and widespread issues.  It is not built to handle a 4 core at 4Ghz let alone a 6 core.

Keep the 960T at stock with the stock heatsink for now.

I have a x4 955 BE c3
mobo- gigabyte 880gm usb3 (4+1 vrm)
I'm running @ 3.8ghz with 1.475v.
I was aiming 4ghz for achieving better benchmarking score but cant go any higher than 3.8ghz even if I bump the voltgae.
I know oc'ing on a 4+1vrm mobo beyond 3.8ghz is not recommended so should I stop at 3.8ghz?
I have no plan for changing mobo.

Being based directly on the GA-78LMT-S2P design I'm pretty sure it is protected.

post #830 of 1601

Can I just check the Asus M4N68T-M LE V2? It says no data. Will it be safe for a rig that's not being OC'd on a 65w Athlon II?
