Hello, after I've had my computer build for a while, I realized that it is far from successful, and I need some advice on some upgrades in the computer. First of all I need a new motherboard for my build, my current motherboard is limited to 1333MHz RAM, and there are no good overclocking possibilities. So I need help on getting a motherboard that will fit my needs, and nothing more. I need a motherboard that can manage to overclock my CPU to a decent level, I don't want alot of the pro-features that you'd pay alot of money for, I just need a decent motherboard that will carry me through the games on a decently overclocked CPU, along with a standard BenQ 24".

I'm also in the marked for a decent CPU cooler, I do realize that I will need something else than my stock cooler if I'm going to do any overclocking.

And one final question about my build is that my GTX 660Ti can't be overclocked very well on my current build, I'm overclocking it with MSI Afterburner and I can't set the Core Speed & Memory Clock any higher than about 125+ (about 5% of the entire meter) before the video-driver will crash when running MSI Kombustor or any other game for that matter.

I do realize I'm asking alot here, but this is my first time I've ever put a Gaming Computer together, so I'm pretty new to all of this. So I hope some of you smart people out there can answer some of my questions! Thanks in advance!

id get this motherboard. i have no idea why you bought a b75 board in the first place when you have a k series chip

for the CPU cooler, id get this if you want something cheap that will get some good results

if your card cant overclock well, then its the chip that cant handle it. if its running too hot, that can also be a problem
