Hi all! I'm currently considering overclocking my budget CPU as it is able to do so (AMD A8-7650K)
However, I've read a few scare stories and warnings about the VRM on the motherboard.

My motherboard is a MSI A68HM Grenade motherboard and I can see 6 VRM Chokes on the board (I think this means I have 6 phases?) which seems good, but they have no form of cooling.
No heatsink or fans and whatnot. According to my motherboard box, they're rated for 60 amps rather than 40 amps, if that makes a difference.

Anyway, my real question is this, does it sound suitable for an OC of my CPU? Thanks!
