I currently own an AMD Phenom II 955BE CPU paired with an ASUS M3A78Pro motherboard and 4GB of DDRII. I want to go for an AM3+ motherboard to switch to DDRIII and do some OC.
I know these questions have been asked before (probably not all of them in the same thread), but what MB, RAM (I'm thinking 16GB) and CPU cooler would you recommend? It would be especially helpful if those that went for a similar configuration could give me some feedback.
RAM, the CPU you have requires some BIOS modifications for RAM run at DDR3-1600, and the problem is the newer FX runs native DDR3-1866. I've found DDR3-1866 running at DDR3-1333 'SPD' for many kits to be another problem, but they can run DDR3-1600 easier.
