1055t - upgrade mobo? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
You would be gaining a better quality 4+1 power phase with over-current protection to protect from failures and overheating.

However, this is still not the optimal option depending on how much you pay for that new ASUS mobo which is still mATX and 4+1 phase; the likelihood is for the same price you can jump the bandwagon on an ATX board with quality VRMs and all... unless you absolutely need mATX. In which case that board (with cooling if you are OC), or the new design Gigabyte 880GMA boards (w/cooling for OC), or the Biostar TA890GXE, would be good ideas. The MSI 890GXM-G65 would not be a good idea, it is known to VRMfail very often with Phenom II x6 even at stock, and IMO is quite overpriced for an mATX board anyway.

Thanks all for the help and suggestions. @ xd_1771 - yes it has to be mATX, I don't have the budget for a new case. As for OC-ing, I'm not massively into it, I have my 1055t modestly overclocked @ 3.36ghz and undervolted @ 1.26v. Runs very cool and is rock solid. The Gigabyte 880GMA board looks interesting, is there any advantage of this board over the Asus M4A88TD-M? The specs look pretty much identical.
