Hi, ive had my pc for around 5 months new, at the time i wasnt fussed about overclocking, it was more for the SLI. Well now i dont even think i will ever use SLI, its too much for x2 gfx cards, its better buying 1 powerful one every x years.
Anyway i ended up getting a Quad-Core 6600 @ 2.4Ghz on a Asus P5N-E, which is stable @ 3ghz, but the motherboard is limiting me to only a fsb of 333 due to the 3-phase power on the board. I also put a blue orb ii on it, and although im very happy with am looking into something else..
Im after a motherboard, keeping away from nvidia chipsets, that can help me achieve 3.4ghz up to 4ghz. I doesnt need to be 4ghz 24/7, i just want one that is flexible enough. Im thinking of cooling it on air with a thermalright 120A. My pc will be using 4x1gb DDR2 [email protected] on a 650w atrix psu (is the psu enough)
The motherboards ive seen are (in no order, must support LGA-775):
Gigabyte GA-P35C-DSR Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R > looks tasty GA-EP45-DS3P ASUS P5Q-E ASUS P5K Abit IP35 ASUS P5Q DFI LP LT X38 T2R Asus P5QC ASUS P5K-VM
Although im not sure which will be the best, price is no worry at the moment.
Its a mine field i know, but im sure someone is clever enough to help me out on this one, spartacus :)
