New motherboard suggestions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey

My current mobo didn't come with mosfet heatsinks, Ive ordered and put on enzotech heatsinks and they have helped a bit but I still cant get a decent overclock. Anyways, I want a new board that has good cooling and will help me get a max overclock for my phenom II X6. I really can't spend much...preferably $100-$140. Was wondering what you guys would suggest for that price range.

Thanks guys.

Out of the 3 of those, that asus evo board is looking good to me with the 2 X16 pci-e slots, but here comes probably a noob question-it mentions sli and nforce chipset and every reviewer has an nvidia card.......but would it work with ati cards in crossfire? lol.
