Just thought I'd ask around for some advice. Built a system about a month ago. Here is the current config:
Phenom II X6 1055T MSI 880GMA-E45 Cooler Master Hyper212+ Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB DDR3 1600 Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W 80+ Certified PSU Rosewill Challenger case No Graphics Card 2*1TB Spinpoint F3's in RAID 1
So my problem is this: I've gone through two motherboards in this setup! 1st one died after about an hour of stress testing OC'd to 3.08gHz. RMA'd the board and got a new one. This one also died after about 45 minutes at 3.3gHz. I'm wondering if the 4-pin CPU power supply on the mobo has something to do with my problems. I read some posts citing overclocking problelms with a 4-pin power supply connector on the mobo.
Any recommendations as far as a better overclocking motherboard with similar options as the one I have now? (USB 3.0, HDMI integrated graphics, etc.) Trying to keep it around the same price ($100).

i think M4A880T-Evo is good choice...it has NB850 and 880G chipset, which i think good board for oc'ing....but i think its a little bit over $100....
