    Whats a good board to go along with the 6 core? I don't need anything with a ton of features, but i would love to have a board that overclocks nicely. It also has to recognize 6 cores out of the box, as i don't have another chip i could use to flash the BIOS.

    I don't really have a budget, but it would be nice to keep it nice and cheap, under $200 would be nice.:)

    Hows this board: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003A764XM/?tag=tec06d-20

    EDIT: Decided to go with the ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO. :)

    That's a good choice for a budget overclocker, I have the older 785G EVO. It's one of the least expensive AM3 board with decent northbridge cooling, mosfet cooling and full ATX size. Brown PCB isn't much to look at though. ASRock 870 EXTREME3 also looks pretty decent for a little less.

    I would go Asus or Gigabyte. MSI sucks for mobos.

    Hopefully my current Patriot Viper memory work with the board, as these current sticks i have are from a tri channel kit for X58 boards.

    Lets hope no problem with compatibility arises.:ohwell:

    Actually I was going to suggest the Asrock 890fx Deluxe3 or the Gigabyte 790xta-ud4. You made a pretty good choice on the Asus m4 board. Nice lil budget clocker. :)

    Oh and about the ram, don't worry man. I'm 95% sure no problems will show.

    Thanks!!:)

    Ya i wanted to keep it cheap, and since i haven't used an AMD system since Socket 939, i really wasn't to up to date on the AMD chipsets so i just figured i go with what ever was cheap and had the features that would suit me.

    If you wanna save a few pennies most boards can take these cpus to 4ghz so choose one with best features/cooling and don't worry about mosfet area to much aslong as it has 5 phase + it will do it.

    My board only has 4 phase and overclocks it fine, did have to add my own mosfet cooling though, beefed up the nb cooler before I even booted though so imagine nb could make a difference XD lol
