What do you mean by oem board? Sorry if the question is silly

Original Equipment Manufacturer, means that you bought your computer at a store and it was made by a large major company. Since it's a HP it is a OEM motherboard, meaning the chance of getting a stable and safe overclock is rare, pair that with bad stock cooling and that E4600's frequency ain't going anywhere.

An original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, manufactures products or components that are purchased by a company and retailed under that purchasing company's brand name.[ref 1] OEM refers to the company that originally manufactured the product.

Its a term often used to describe something thats pre-built or manufactured. The difference being If you were to go to bestbuy and buy a desktop pc verses building a "custom" pc with parts bought from a site like newegg.

The bestbuy or 'OEM' pc will most likely be 'locked' from any real overclocking other than some shotty fsb oc softwares that I would not recommend.

Enthusiast level computer parts are built knowing that chances are the buyer will attempt to gain extra performance from them rather then only having what necessary to get by like OEM.

My bad luck. I actually baught from hp shop. So which motherboard i should get at decent price?
post #7 of 8
best socket 775 mobo for overclocking is a gigabyte ep45-ud3p. you will also need a better cpu cooler. i dont think its worth it for you to spend this much money on a e4600.

sell it and build a nice gaming pc.
