Asrock:http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.as...80G%20Extreme3
Asus:http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD..._PRO/#overview
Upgrading because the Asrock mobo couldnt achieve stable fsb and it fail my oc
would the Asus board be better?
The rest of the hardware is:
Corsair Dominator CMP4GX3M2A1600C8
Sapphire Ati Radeon HD4770 512mb Gddr5
2xSata2 HDD
Fortron Bluestorm 2 500w

It could be better, then again it may not. When OCing you can usually be pretty sure if it's the motherboard holding you back or the processor. What are your OC settings and what do you mean by fsb? FSB is history since 2008, Phenom II doesn't have FSB.

Ok i mean the HT and the 200mhz bus,it is not stable it fluctuates between 179mhz to 208mhz when set to 200mhz,the other settings its basic,forget about the mobo is the asus better?anyone with it? sry for the bad english
And yes i ma sure that the mobo wasnt good maybe it was faulty.

I try to avoid boards with on-board video. In my experience, the boards with on-board video don't seem to overclock nearly as well as those without, even with it disabled.

However, keep in mind that I may have just been unlucky. I never did any scientific test to prove my findings. However, it seems to make sense to me. It's just one more thing that the chipset has to connect to that could interfere with stability.
