Hey, I asked this question in the overclocking forums but I am not sure if this would be a better place for the question so I will post it here also. I want to OC my cpu some but at the moment I have a Dell mobo and am unable to through the bios, and from what I understand, that is the best way to do so. My question is can someone recommend to me a good starter mobo that is a socket 775 LGA that would be good for OCing my wolfdale e6500? I hear my particular cpu is great for overclocking and would like to squeeze a bit more performance out of it. My budget is up to 100$ I would say.
I did have one more follow up question. According to CPUID, my current Mobo uses a p35 chipset, but I notice that the mobo Rolli linked says p43. Does that mean that my cpu and that mobo are not compatible? Or does it just have to have a matching socket?
P43 is just newer and will be compatible with you CPU. Since it is a Dell what size case is it? many of them are mini towers that need Micro ATX boards.
The case it came in was a slim case, but since then I have changed cases due to my upgrading from the on board card to a gtx 260, so the dell mobo is kind of swimming in my new case, lots of unused room.
