  • Good mobo for overclocking?

    Right i built a new pc recently, but stupidly didnt think i could afford certain hardware so had to get a step-up motherboard. But i ended up buying a whole new system anyway. Ive currently got a Core 2 Duo E6400 with 2GB Elixir DDR2.

    And i've heard the E6400 can be overclocked to around 3ghz. Which i obviously can't do as my current mobo is nothing short of garbage haha.

    Any recommendations?

    Current Setup

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.2ghz
    2GB Elixir PC6400 DDR2 Dual Channel
    Asus Gforce 512mb Silent GFX
    250GB Seagate SATA HD

    Asus p5b deluxe should be good for 400fsb, mine is anyway, which would see you to a 50% overclock :twisted:

      I've got a Gigabyte 965P-DS3 which takes the E6300 up to 3.4, there's also the higher-end DS4 board which does the same too
