Odd, I must've misread when I thought that a decent phase for overclocking has to be at least 4+2. So basically it being an 8 phase was the obvious red flag? What about in cases where the phase isn't even mentioned in the description? Is that a worse offender?

Speaking of power, how good is HWMonitor's TDP estimations?
I've noticed that the variations and consumption estimates seem pretty believable on paper, but I don't know if it's anything more than (voltsxhz)(tdp/(voltsxhz)) or something.

4+2 digital vrms is probably fine, but 4+2 analogue vrms can probably only deliver ~95w or so, with 8+2 getting around in the mid-hundreds.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

no way is 4+2 good for overclocking. 6+ is a minimum. if it's not mentioned, you can just count the vrms on the board around the cpu socket. the digi vrms used by asrock/asus are better than standard. also MSI's sfc ones are good too. those ones are ok with 6 phase (4+2).

You're probably much better off with that Z77 board that was posted.

Unless NZXT Source is desceptively bad, it looks like it should be a pretty damn good build.
Perhaps replace the Neo Eco with a CX430. I can't remember how good Neo Eco is, and CX430 could save you some money while also being a reliable power supply.

Question: Why do the Biostar motherboards say "Maximum CPU TDP (Thermal Design Power) : 95Watt" Wasn't the point of the whole conversation that just came up, to get a board capable of more than 95W? Probably noobish question, but motherboards are most definitely my weakest area.
