playing BF3 for an hour, the hottest it got was 53C thats all 4 cores at 80+% ussage
Wow. Isn't 53 kind of high for AMD?
it is when gaming for a hour im hitting high 30's or even low 40' s but he is using a stock cooler and fan so that is why if he used an aftermarket it would be much better
Yeah, but yours is overclocked with a high voltage and his is still at 100% stock. I dunno, I just don't know if I can believe that 53C for 80% load or higher in BF3 is normal for the FX-4300 at stock with stock cooling.

I also do believe from his screen shots as well he just has the cpu heatsink cooler an exhaust fan and Gpu fan he needs a few more fans as well pretty much he needs to fix his cooling and power needs then he will be able to get a better grasp on what he is trying to do

alright let me clear up a few things lol im not OCing with that PSU.... i was just in bios looking and clicking the settings. also my vcore is set at 1.400v and thats because of the turbo speed i believe. again, i only have 1 exhaust fan at the time. i just ordered an intake fan and it is in the mail as we speak. should be getting it tomorrow.

but I HAVENT TOUCHED ANY OC SETTINGS YET! just messing and learning.

but if i have to increase voltage, i increase the cpu voltage. not the ND or SD voltage because im not changing the FSB ratio. rite?

well you said you have no fsb available to use which means that board is limited and not able to oc well

let me look up your board and see what I can find out for you first I can't say till I see your features because everyone is different

Ok this is one New egg review that I thought gave a clearer idea about what the potential your board has

I read through at least 10 reviews and most of them weren't good but with that being said here is a clip from a person that I think knows what he is talking about and what it's capable of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130679

ohh gotcha!

but how does that effect the cpu? if im only increasing CPU voltage and CPU ratio, how come the NB and SB are effected?

They heat up and if they get to hot they explode and can catch fire and were not talking about Bob Marley to catch a fire either it will do what it did to me and pop and burn up

they say high class military but seems MSI is just talking nonsense because this board im using now by ASUS boast the same thing and doesn't even get close to the temps the MSI board had me at so that made me believe that MSI is just saying it is Military but really being cheap on the consumer
