    Here's the list -

    IMO you need a new, non-OEM MOBO so you can OC. The AM3+ and new chipsets are also faster and will support the forthcoming AMD Bulldozer.

    OEM MOBO's, most of them, lock-out OC'ing CPU, RAM, etc.
  2. +1^ you must bear in mind OE boards such as the one you have listed are very limited with regards to upgrading capabilities and basic architecture.
  3. LOL why are there the digits 18 after everyones post? is this a new thing?
