Seen many of those caps blown. Would a replacement with a high quality cap be worth it. Or are you just going to RMA it if it blows?

Well so much for that board. P5KC didnt like priming Q6600 at 3.8G, too much power and heat I guess. Primed an hour and then there was fire lol, my room still reeks. :(





I knew there might be an issue there, power reg is brutal that lil area by cpu socket runs at 90C even with HS and 120mm panaflo over it on full speed.

Have to fine that lil chip now to replace.

Holy cow! Im doing 4.2GHh now and hope that my board does now do that. :) Anyways, not going to prime, because it would crash for sure! Just testing what this baby can do.

Im doing now 4GHz for playing without problems. 3DMark passed also many times... :)

Did vdroop mod and after that droop is only 0.008, very good i think.
