Can you answer the question / question I asked?
Thanks.
Edit:
If I understand correctly, says that if I OC, I exceed the 125W, then I should use the VRM heatsinks on the motherboard, right?

In short, yes. Get hold of C1s or opt for an active fan over the VRMs smile.gif

And without heatsinks, there is a risk that is heated and damaged? now I have no heatsinks on the VRM's ... I would like to OC my Phenom II 965 to 3.8, with 2.6GHz NB.

There won't be any damage to the VRMs due it being an ASUS. But you may face throttling issues which will affect overall performance on full load.

Hey guys. My motherboard is the one in my sig, it is rated for 125W CPUs. However, I unlocked my X2 550 and I have overclocked it. Using HW Monitor, I can see that at load, it is using about 169.9W.
My mobo sensor tells me the temp is usually at 31C, and it rarely budges. Before unlocking my processor, I had updated my BIOS to the most recent version. Before that my northbridge usually idled at 80C(for real, it was a common issue with my motherboard, I think it was a sensor issue, because at touch it would be warm at best).

So, anyways, right now it's pretty much always @ 31C or so. Is it dangerous to keep my processor at these clocks and all, considering the heavy wattage used, even though my temperatures are seemingly alright?
I also wish to overclock further, and would like to know if it was recommended to do so. My case airflow is pretty good, IMO. I've noticed trying to push my NB farther than 2200Mhz resulted in my computer not POSTing, but that might be because of lack of voltage, and I did not try afterwards with added voltage. My overclocks are stable, tested with 50 passes of LinX, and about 8 hours of P95 Blend(the air cooling setup I've used for that stresstest... oh boy...).

That board is relatively ok for overclocking BUT only with VRM cooling. Do you have any?

Where would the VRM area be located? I figured my current airflow would be enough. I have 60mm fans, I just don't know where to play one, or how to.
