Just found out my MSI board's mosfets fried and couldn't seem to keep up with the needs of the 1055t I own even at a mere 3.75 Ghz and 1.45v which I had been running since May. I am looking for a new replacement board that can handle at least a 3.6 Ghz overclock with the Thuban until the new AMD or Intel processor come out later next year. It doesn't need SLI/Crossfire as the two PCI-E 2.0 slots were too close together to be used on the MSI board anyway, plus I would like to keep my ASUS Xonar Essence ST. USB 3.0 and Sata 6 aren't exactly a requirement either as I will be upgrading to something else later next year anyway and I don't currently use those features on this board.
What is the best alternative? I have an Inwin Dragon Slayer case with a Corsair H70 with suspect airflow as the corsair H70 is attached to the side mesh window to fit everything since the ATI 5850 card is too damn long. I want to make sure I don't have any more Mosfets that burn out (even though the MSI board had a huge heatsink over them) and would like a board with the best power circuitry possible.
