    hey guys, im new to overclocking and just found my board is shit for OCing. im lookin for a mobo for about £60-80 ($90-125) to fit and clock my fx4100, with room for upgrade.

    requirements: am3+, SLI, 6gb/s sata and stable voltage control?

    I would've went with a Sabertooth.
    The ASRock boards are known to throttle with FX CPUs due to too much power draw. This is not a problem with Thuban, but is a major problem with the newer CPUs with their redesigned VRM input.
    The Sabertooth is realistically the cheapest you'd want to go to get a good FX overclock.
