I was planning to buy a Biostar A770E3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but I have a Phenom II X4 965 125W. It says that the motherboard supports up to 95W on newegg but on biostar's page it says it supports up to 125W http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/content.php?S_I... :o . Which one is the correct one? D:

I would contact Newegg to see if they need to update their site. The Biostar page does show that it is version 6.x... perhaps older versions only supported 95w CPUs. Are you stuck on buying this motherboard?

Go by the "cpu support" section. If the 965 is listed, then it should work.

Also I peeked into the downloadable manual and I see that this motherboard can support DDR3 1600 OC, does this mean I would have to oc my ram or could I just buy a pair of 1600 and stick them in?

It means that if you have DDR3 RAM that supports 1600, then you would need to enter the BIOS and make that adjustment (essentially overclocking) in order to get those speeds. I'm not an overclocker, but that is a pretty common practice these days, and simple enough for those of us that aren't "in the know" when it comes to OC'ing.

I hear ya'! Just asking, since you can get some nicer boards for around 60-70 bucks. My dad has a Biostar board and it's worked very well for him so far!
