I dont think the board would limit your oc. I have a 790x-ud4p and temps from the board were never my problem. GB makes a good product so I would think the chip is more the limiting factor. Since itel has not released the official max voltage for the chip I just read a few threads saying not to get above 1.42 I believe. Also the ram is reccomended to not have a higher voltage than 1.5 (but some ppl said 1.65 didnt hinder anything).
Again this is all just forum talk until intel officially releases max stable voltages for the SB chips.
lol, the only thing that woudl limit you woudl be the lack of CPu PLL Overvoltage unlock, that is only on UD4 UD5 and UD7. I have seent eh UD3P do 5.2ghz with 100.7blck and 2133 ram at the same time, it was a sick OC.
I'm just concerned about the GD65's phases now. They have a 6+1 Phase setup but their phases are supposed to be 30% more efficient than a normal phase. This would be more or less equal to an 8+1.3 Phase setup. This is what I'm worried about. Can less more efficient phases do the same job as more less efficient phases?
