As long as you do your homework and get a decent mobo, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to oc it. It would be easier with a 1090t (unlocked multiplier) but you'll also pay $50 more.

Just depends if you're up to the challenge and have the extra time to oc a locked multiplier CPU.

I had built my own computers before, but never oc'ed anything until this rig I built in October.

Check my sig below for stats.

Ok thanks. I dont mind spending extra on mobo, it makes sense. And the time is no problem, as i wont oc straight away. Whisch i suppose will give me time to learn a bit more.

This will be my first ever build so im sure i will be kept busy getting to grips with everything. I just think should i pay extra 50 and make life easier or save and and put to ssd or something. Would it make sense to overclock a little at a time to get to know whats going on. Say maybe up to 3.2 then 3.5 and so on.

I'll just warn you about the motherboard, the first one i picked was a microATX with a 4 pin CPU power connector. Don't know if that's what caused all my troubles, but I fried two of them trying to even do a slight overclock.

So I got a full size ATX mobo with an 8 pin connector, and have had no problems with it whatsoever.
