Great OP! I initially thought I was buying an awesome motherboard for OC'ing when it first came out -- as it turns out it's one of the worst. I've purchased a hyper 212+, additional ceiling fans for my case, but it still throttles down after prolonged use under ~full load. It boggled my mind for a long time until learning all about 4+1 power phases and un-sinked mosfets!! That knowledge will certainly factor into my next mobo buying decision.
