Sorry I forgot to say it was an MSI board. Micro Center only gave me a small selection of under $120 motherboards to choose from and I chose that one.
How do you know that it is a weak 4 phase motherboard?
|MSI Z68A-G43. Yeah, it'll support Ivy Bridge in the future. Otherwise nothing really noteworthy. It's not going to overclock too terribly well being a weak 4 phase motherboard. You'll be lucky to hit 4.0-4.4GHz with that thing. Should've spent the extra 10 bucks on the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 z68 honestly|
