Yeah but majority of people buying an enthusiast board buy it to overclock.

This is the best point I've heard for a while about the whole thing. Nice Job.

Yeah but the guy I was responding to was talking about not trusting BD on the board at stock voltages.

There have been MSI boards that have fried at stock voltages too.

No, it's "if it's broken, fix it. If it isn't broken, then fix it some more!"

I don't know why anyone would buy an 800 series motherboard for Bulldozer. You'll lose power saving technologies and we yet don't know if there will be any issues over-clocking or with anything else.

Sure, a relative few failures out of thousands of boards sold. On these forums, you primarily hear about the failures, since people come online to complain about them. You almost never see them come on line to boast about how happy they are with this or any other product.

The fact is, my VRM ran hot (55-60c) in the beginning because of the non-standard chip cooler I'm using which robs the VRM of air flow. The stock AMD cooler blows air down at the chip which causes air to also flow over the VRM heat sink. Adding a separate fan pointed directly at the VRM heat sink lowered the temps dramatically (~44c) and is probably contributing to the stability I've experienced.

I have been making that argument for the last year, and enjoyed exploding the hell out of my 4 phase MSI board this past weekend trying for a stable 4.5 GHz.

Of course, you weren't anywhere near stock voltage, right?

When I actually assploded it was at 1.535ish. The thing I don't get is I have done IBT and P95 runs near 1.6 and no explosions.
