what should i expect from a 955 c3 on watercooling? - Page 5

post #41 of 52
Thread Starter 
yeah, im thinking todo with the vrms or mosfets, that if you feel them, or heat, that thats a big thing that will tell you how they are doing, because its usually heat that kills everything, wires melt them selfs from too much current, and at that they get hot, so i would figure same thing applies to them mosfets,

i dont know what "mosfets" look like, so i probably could not figure out mine, but i will get a 80mm fan and throw it up on there to blow some extra air around,

Judging from pics of your mobo model, it has a heatsink on it. Its the big part of the copper heatsink that sticks up. With decent airflow it shouldn't be too hot. I wouldn't recommend going too extreme with the OC'ing though unless you don't mind the risk of blowing your board due to the power phase, no matter how cool it is.

Well its a matter of how much voltage you're pulling through it, and boards aren't really given a max rating for such things. With overclocking/overvolting that's pretty much a risk you take. I know I run the chance of frying some of my components, and if that happens then its time for an upgrade

Possible, I had the MSI 785GT-E63 & ASUS M4A785-M, neither of which I would consider "quality" boards. The build initially started out as one for my girlfriends best friends parents with a ASUS M4A785-M and a Regor 245 with a 9800GT. There are no boards of quality on Newegg for DDR2 currently, nor were there when I was buying them.

I had to buy mosfet heat sinks and used a 120mm case fan to cool them, and I still lost 3 boards before getting the Gigabyte with 8+2 phase power.



Maybe I was unlucky, or maybe because I was under water going for 4.3GHz and a 2.9GHz NB it was too much for the boards... I dunno

You want as high a NB as possible.

Shoot for 2.7ish, then work on your core speeds.

First thing I like to do is figure out is how fast the ram can run, then use that to figure out the mutli on my NB and Core after that.
