Hi i'm new here .So i have GA-965P-DQ6 mobo where i overclocked my E6600 to 3.5.When summer came i had to step it down little bit and after that i couldnt get my 800 memory to 300+ cause my pc would freeze after heavy load .Im sure its the mobo problem because i tried different components. I guess memory controler is broken.
I have xeon x3220 which is basically Q6600 and i wanna get a new mobo.
Is there a diffrence between motherboard? I mean like some of them can handle more fsb because i dont want it to broke after few months like my old one did.
I dont want to invest a lot of money to that because im gonna buy 2500k and stuff after a year and this mobo is gonna go to my sister which is internet user only. I was thinking about combo motherboars which support ddr2/ddr3 if there is no difference between motherboars in terms of overclocking because i have spare ddr2 rams from my previous system.
What you think?
Sorry im not english.Thanks for answers
