    DDR3:

    OCing largely depends on your CPU and your cooling. Make sure you have adequate cooling before you OC.
  2. ASRock P45XE

    Thats a cheap modern board with good overclock features for 775 processors and DDR2
  3. thanks guys for the replies. will surely check em out
  4. Get one from Asus or gigabyte,Their mobo's are stable,solid and perform well!
  5. One more thing....


    Don't get a Cooler master Extreme power series PSU.
    They aren't very good quality units.

    just get yourself a Corsair 550VX or if budget doesn't allow that then get a 450VX.
