ASRock AB350M-HDV for OCing

It doesn't have VRM heatsinks, and only 4 pin for CPU. What are the OCing potentials I could lose?

You can maybe OC a quad core CPU a bit (say 1.35V), which is a lot lower than the fully heatsinked Pro4 since it can hold the 6 core 1600 at 1.4V easily.

Do you already own the motherboard or are you thinking about buying it? If you are looking at buying it, what's the price of the AsRock AB350M Pro 4 in your area compared to the AB350M-HDV?

 

What CPU are you planning on using, and what sort of overclocking are you intending on doing? If you are using a higher end CPU like the 2700x you might need to spend a bit more on a better motherboard.

I already have it with R3 1200. Planning to up to R5 2600 do some OC. I'm able to OC the 1200 to 3.8Ghz with 1,31V and got 88°C max on Prime95 torture test.

Does the motherboard report motherboard VRM temperatures in software like HWinfo64? What's it reporting for the VRMs under a load like running Cinebench?
Wouldn't surprise me if at that voltage the VRM would be sitting at 120C+.

Nothing as OC will kill it.

Its made to be a Standard Board with Standard Clockrates.

Where can I see the VRM temp? I'm using HWinfo64 and none of them says VRM except GPU VRM. This is my recent Prime95 test HWinfo64 result. Ran it for about 5 minutes just to see if there's a number reaching 100-120+°C like you said.image.png.1f278dd0a6f5ebc5432b17160c21a429.png
