Budget AM3 Overclocking Motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any recommendations for a AM3 motherboard that can support unlocking my 560 and possibly overclock to 3.8ghz-4.0ghz? I will be picking up a 212 shortly and was wondering what would be a good motherboard to replace mine. I would like to keep it around 70$ max and am more then open to oben box motherboards.

If you don't mind buying used. But for $70 you won't find anything else that will handle the voltage necessary to hit 3.8/4ghz.

Yeah, 70$ is little, but

No unlocking, but okay for slight overclocking. 3.7Ghz?

I did 4.0Ghz on a 40$ board and it blew up.

The asus board won't Ben fail due to protection technologies; worst case scenario if vrms overheat is thermal throttling of CPU.
What mobi did you blow and on what CPU cooling?
