I'm looking for a budget mobo which will let me overclock the IGP of the i3.I live in India.The mobo that I'm currently looking at is the GIGABYTE GA-H55M-UD2H(costs about $135 here).Will it be able to do the job?Or should I look for something a bit more expensive?

Btw,I saw so many -ve feedbacks for this mobo at newegg.But everybody keep saying the it's the best budget mobo for OCing a Clarkdale.
Or is it this combo deal that caused the problem?

GIGABYTE GA-H55M-UD2H

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

I really don't know much about overclocking the igp in the i3s but if any boards can
do it then this gigabyte will probably not be any worse than the other ones...
Other people have had success with that motherboard though so you might not
have a problem with it at all...and maybe it was that combo that was causing some problems....
what is your budget though? if you are able to afford a bit higher, why not? you know?

I own an i3 530 coupled with the same mobo and yes it overclocks like a mofo.
I haven't experimented too much but 3.5Ghz was easy took like 2 min.
4Ghz is widely reported if you bother to google it.
Since you live in a hot climate i would suggest you buy an aftermarket cooler.
I use a CM 212+ on my set-up.

Plus if you're referring to the Intel GMA graphics on the cpu good luck with that.
The best you could do is alot some more ram to it.
Adding a $40-60 gpu would be a huge improvement.

^ yes it definitely would...and I actually heard of people overclocking the igp...just don't know if it would go high or even give it a nice enough performance increase...
