I'm thinking off replacing my am2+ board and phenom II 955 4gb ddr2 mems on my sig rig. it's been acting up lately. just finished fixing it (had trouble booting). i had to reseat the ram countless times to get it to boot. can you guys recommend me the cheapest am3+ board that can overclock decently? I'm thinking of getting either a FX6100 or a FX4100. my phenom II 955 is a retail chip I got years ago. it's a c2 so it's not a very good clocker so it would be a good upgrade even if I only get the FX4100

with a 4100, you chould probably get away with anything.

if you are really serious about overclocking, the 970 extreme3 would be a good step up

I'm thinking of selling the phenom II x4+mobo+memory on my sig. forget about the fx6100. it's a bit out of budget (I forgot about the rams tongue.gif) I'm looking for a cheap board that would get me to 4.8ghz. I guess any board would do with just a quadcore?


http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3828#ov

i'm looking at this board. gigabyte the GA-880GM-USB3L (rev. 3.1). can I get away with a 4+1 power phase on a fx4100 @ 4.8ghz?

This is off the top of my head but 4+1 phase / 4core x 4.8ghz = not bloody likely... but my math could be wrong

common sense of owning amd chips for years had me thinking that it won't be enough as well. I can't say im sure though. may bulldozer quad cores are less stressful on the motherboards compared to regular phenom II quads. they are 2 module-4core chips and maybe they are more efficient

If its got a good 4+1 it might be able to do it with additional cooling.
But the main thing to look for at the moment is good bios support.

getting a solid 4.8 on any motherboard is a stretch.

unless you are using water or something.

but that board is one of the better ones that GB makes.

still uses a mosfet in the place of a driver, but it should be ok

4.8ghz with a fx4100 is still not guaranteed? I thought it was the average overclock for a quad. like a 4ghz overclock for a phenom II x4 c3

I wouldn't count on getting 4.8

Asus M5A97 - Evo has a 6+2 power phase, that's probably more like what you should be looking at. It's pretty cheap too!
