I know my board has bad vrm's but i oc'd my fx 6300 to 4.2ghz anyway.TIMPIN1 maxes 71C after hour of prime 95. since the board supports 125watt cpu's i thought my oc would be ok as long as i stay at 125 watts. My processor is at stock 95 watts and according to http://extreme.outervision.com/tools.jsp#cpuoc at this speed and voltage I am at about 125 watts. So is this board too hot ? Yes or no but please don't lecture me on how this board shouldn't be oc'd

ALSO mi have 4 intake and one exhaust fan, 2 intake in the front and two on the side blowing on the mobo. exhaust is on the back

Is that the temp for your CPU or the board? It seems a bit high for a chipset but if it is the CPU its might be ok. I am not an expert on AMD but I think the max temp is supposed to be 62c but hard to say.

71C after 1 hour is high enough for a board. at this temp rate, an overnight prime95 might as well burn your board

i have read on other threads of toms and consensus is 90s is bad anthying below 85-80 is good. But I was curious if anyone new more specifically about my motherboard as it has no heat sinks on the vrms

vrm is not the only component that heats up a mobo.

you are touching 70C in an hour....i suspect in about 6hrs or so your board will cross the 90C mark

after it hits 70 it drops down to 69 and stays there between 69 and 71
