    Default GA-EP45-DS3 cooling

    on my own board a p35 ds3p i added a few mosfet sinks just incase before i overclocked




    i am building a system based on a GA-EP45-DS3

    and i am wondering would i need to do the same, i will only be overclocking
    a q6600 to 3gz 333x9 or maybe even 400x8 to 3.2ghz

    in short is it worth having mosfet sinks on the mosfets or will it be cool without ?

    Hmm, well if that board does not have any ya I would for sure add some. Seeing that it does not actually yes I would add some for sure

    Enzotech makes some nice ones (MOS-C1) >>
    Enzotech MOS-C1 Forged Copper Mosfet Heatsinks

    Yes they ship internationally and do it fast as well, but if you are not in the US you can for sure probably find those locally. If not and you like them let me know and I will show you a few places that have them that do ship internationally. But that site linked above is Very good about shipping internationally incase you wondered

    thanks mate

    another option would work out about the same price as buying ds3 with mosfet coolers


    GA-EP45-UD3R

    it has coolers already installed do you know of any DPC latency problems with this board mate as it's main use would be as a audio work station using ASIO
    for mixing and other audio stuff like cubase ?
