Hey community,

So I've got a complex situation. The motherboard that I decided to use for a 955 build turned out to be really slow. I figured that I would just give it the AM2+ motherboard I have been using with my 965 and upgrade that one.

I'm looking for a motherboard that's M-ATX and will work with the 965 in terms of overclocking. I don't actually care THAT much about it, like I dont want the Sabertooth or anything, but I'd like to keep the mobo/RAM at about $100. Willing to go over a bit.

I'm in no rush really. I'll probably upgrade the 955 computer and then sell it. I've got too many.

I use an older version of this board: ($59.99 at newegg, link broken). Mine has 3 overclock settings built into the bios, so you don't have to set the overclock manually. Only negative is fan noise until windows loads, and the smartfan settings kick in.
