You need a new PSU and a proper CPU cooler, the motherboard could be better but the M4A79XTD EVO should allow for some decent clocks(~3.8Ghz).

Where are you buying from?

prolly a local store here i might call them in a few min to see what they have in stock, so you think my psu is whats holding me back, cause it seems no matter what settings i use to OC i always get a BSOD x124 it seems, could this be due to my psu, or something? i kno i do need proper cooling for OCin but i was playin around to see what i could get at stock voltages or lil higher' i was lookin at the Hyper 212+

I'm not saying your PSu is holding you back.. it is a poor unit but it shouldn't be the cause of your issues.

Do this and let us know if you get the same BSOD afterwards.

ps. the 212+ is not a proper cooler.

pps. link the shop in question so we can see what's on offer.

Not important really.. but before you do that update your BIOS(if you haven't done it already) smile.gif

Yeah, no components listed... maybe a PDF document with what they sell?

when i bought this mobo it already had the latest BIOS i do beleive, resaon why i asked to do that with my OC settings is because i get the 124 BSOD while im overclocked, when Bios defaults are loaded i never get them

This is a ~2.5 year old motherboard, the latest bios is dated July 2010 and can be found here.
Either way, it's clearly a motherboard issue(BIOS, BIOS settings, drivers, w/e).

a guy from cpu forum told me to get a psu first, mine is prolly not holding enough vcore to keep my OC stable

The motherboard VRM regulates the CPU voltages not the PSU, if the PSU was the culprit you should have gotten an abrupt shutdown and not the BSOD... again, the PSU is trashy but your system pulls below 350W at full load, poor PSU regulation rarely(if ever) manifests itself this way.
