    This is exactly what he was wrong about, VRM never overheats and supplies more than enough power for top OC.

    I agree Mike, same with mine too.
    Have you overclocked your CPUs to 7GHz? If not, how can you tell? And what temperatures are your VRMs running at? if it's at 85C or above, it's too much, unless you are prepared to swap MB soon.

    12 actually, and that is a lot.

    But the point here is, that if you're not an extreme overclocker, then don't listen to Buildzoid. You're the wrong audience.

    What does such OC on LN have to do with usability ? My CPU is OC-ed to 4.25GHz, Can go max to 4.3GHz with any stability, that draws about 185W while staying at ~40c.

    It doesn't, and is exactly my point in previous post. Wrong audience.

    My OC stops where stability leaves, eventually a bit more occasionally to see how far it can go but than I back down to usable speeds.
