Need a New MB and Case!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Heya all, first time poster!

Im looking for a new motherboard and a new case i would like to overclock my cpu as i think my temps are low enough that i have a lot of room temp wise to play with, but my current board doesnt have any overclocking options at all, i tried using this easytune crap that came with it, but when i change the fsb speed it just freeze's windows!

I would also like a new case to go with this board, a full tower would be nice and a motherboard thats good for Oc'ing and not the size of an A4 piece of paper, would like to run 2 gpus some time in the future when cash allows.

I have around £150 to spend on the case and motherboard, any help would be really appreicated!

You're going to have a hard time finding a nice motherboard and case for that price.

It's a good thing your board has no OC options actually. As with all Gigabyte 3+1 VRM boards there is no support for 125W processors. This means if you are using the 125W 1055T (like most, the 95W is hard to find) you're running two totally incompatible pieces of hardware.
