There are 5 for CPU, 1 for northbridge, 2 for memory, and 1 for.... something. on the Biostar.
There's 2 for CPU, 1 for northbridge, and 1 for memory on my current board.
As explained by Apokalipse. The reason my board isn't stable at higher voltages/frequencies is because of the limited number of Phases.
You can read about it near the end of my thread titled "upgrading processor, Phenom II x4 940 or Phenom II x4 965" or something like that.
Apokalipse replied with a good explanation of what a choke is and what it does. They are easy way of counting phases, and the more phases the more stable the power is going to whatever they are connected to.
So I'm going from 2 to 5 if I buy this Biostar, which looks like a real possibility on this Friday if I don't hear any more input from some knowledgeable hardware gurus.
Come on guys! I know you're smart! Help me out!~
Supports DDR2? check
Supports Phenom II x6 1055t? check
Good for overclocking? check
MOSFET coolers? check
I will wait 2 weeks and buy this. I'm buying a new 750w power supply this week instead of a crappy low-end motherboard. This way I get to troubleshoot my issues some more and I'll have a nice setup later.
Best of both worlds if ya ask me.
