Have a Phenom II X6 1055t at stock settings, with an MSI NF750-G55 motherboard. i know now that i shouldnt OC much with an older MB and low end psu, but just wondering why when i try to run the Overclocking center, that i downloaded from my motherboards page at msi's website, i get a BSOD.
The combination of low phase count and driver MOSFETs on the infamous MSI 790FX-GD70 (and succeeding 890FX-GD70) resulted in a board that was particularly known for VRM failures in high amperage scenarios (i.e. Phenom II x6). The MSI 890FXA-GD65 and new 8+2 MSI motherboards have doubled the amount of phases - and driver MOSFETs - resulting in higher possible amperage capability. Although these driver MOSFET motherboards with larger phase count are still more prone to failures (which have happened on these boards), the problem is not nearly as rampant as with more phase count, each of the driver MOSFET can supply less amperage and run under less heat and stress.
