I really need to stop reading this sort of mildly technical stuff at 3 am...

Meh, I'm guilty of late night reading too. I've made a post or two here while doing so. And oh how I love suffering Foot in Mouth Syndrome. Prolly as much as you I imagine.

Na, for however infinitesimally miniaturized the actual FIVER regulator is tucked away under a CPUs lid, again, I don't for one second fathom THAT much extra load, and in turn much if any extra heat generation, being shifted to the much beefier/heartier motherboards VRM component section.

No pun intended but it boils down to dissipation and physical size.

I have the 970m and i had my concerns until i found a page where a guy has his 8320 on this bored at 1.45 volts at 4.5 and i thought he was insane, so i overclocked my 8320 to 4.3 cuz i only have a H60 cooler and the VRM heatsink was hot but not burning the sh*t out of myself so i added a 40mm fan i have blowing right on the head sink and the thing never even gets warm. so just like anything with proper cooling sh*t can get used with a FX 8 series just fine at an OK OC
