Well i got my RMA back and they sent me a new one. ^_^ ... but i naturally started to OC and then the voltage regulators are at about 105-115C or 230F this is very hot, and there is no heat sink on them, so i was wondering how long before they fail at these temperatures as the thing says 50 years at 50C and its well above that. Ive hooked up a fan took keep the whole thing from going any high which it was when if fist found it like 130C :think and the cpu wasn't getting stable voltage, now its. Is it possible to make a heat sink for them with some aluminum and would i need something to stop electric current as a heat transfer??
heres my mobo and its nOT intended to be overclocked OOOOO WELL

Omg, a motherboard without heatsinks on the VRMs ... I'm not surprised to see it fail when overclocked too much :(
