there's more to life than just motherboards and Cpus. i think it's wise to set aside some of that money towards a house. :)

be an responsible adult.

That's my biggest priority is saving for a house. next to getting a pardon, but I still need to enjoy myself and my hobbies. I'm definitely budgeting. But I'm still building a newish server, most of it is used though, except the chassis, some ram, and hard drives.

I've been testing something for a while for my new server build, now it's just time to finish

Post Re: Delid or not to Delid
it's really pissing me off.. more and more newer motherboards i see coming out now all have lousy, not to mention corny heatsink designs. i can't believe they call that heat sinks. look at most of the current Asus/msi/asrock VRM heatsink designs, many of them are basically just a solid stick of metal with four surfaces slapped on top of the VRM chips, some are not even full aluminum. it's almost like the designers had no knowledge of how to design a heat sink. the principle of a heat sink is to maximize surface area, what are they doing slapping a stick of Popsicle on top of the VRM chips. they might as well just leave the VRM uncovered to begin with. and they're selling these boards for how much? $280? $300? talk about form before function.

So BAM, you thinking of moving slowly to server components? They might not offer the latest and greatest, but quality should be decent, no?

Post Re: Delid or not to Delid
it's just sad tho. makes you think you have to move to server components to get "real" heat sinks. i am just unhappy with how the trend is going.

Yes, this is what you want: http://www.techpowerup.com/205146/asus- ... board.html

But I think the reason for design-oriented heatsinks is that the actual components have become more durable and able to withstand higher temperatures. It would likely be fine without any heatsink at all I'm guessing.

Post Re: Delid or not to Delid
that's not true. didn't you read my previous post about VRM inadequate cooling causing the voltage throttle. i had to point a 120mm fan onto the vrm heatsink to prevent the throttle from kicking in.

If marketing is to be believed, things like Dr.MOS MOSFET, better chokes and capacitors are able to withstand higher temperatures.

Even if you look at ASRock's OC series, such as http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z97%20OC%20Formula/, you'll see it uses (what I assume) much higher quality components for power delivery.

I think your board more falls into the mid-range value class. Can't expect it to have the greatest components on it or to run such high overclock/voltage without some modifications.

Gone are the days of buying "cheap" hardware and overclocking the hell out of it IMO

you believe in marketing, good for you.
this doesn't just happen to mid range boards. as i pointed out before in those pictures, those boards a high end $300+ boards, and on OCN are running into the same VRM issue.
