I know the FX series have a varied opinion, but instead of OCing the 960T as a quad, would I be better off putting the money to a 965 or FX 4170 (clocks at 4.2ghz). ?
who said a first real build is easy!?
EDIT:
Scrap that......I really want and need a 95w tbh.

Fair Enought if you want a 95w cpu then go for one , Nothing stopping you smile.gif

The M5A97 is an excellent board and I would definitely go with that one if you can afford it thumb.gif

The M4N75TD is also a good choice, but I'd easily take the M5A97 before that one.

the M5A97 is a 4+2 phase board
the M4N75TD is a 8+1
the M4A79XTD-EVO is a 8+2 board this is the best board to over clock

By heavy oc'ing I mean getting to 4ghz...

All I aim to do is get my 960t to a hexcore and 3.5ghz ish. Bearing in mind on stock cooling for now

But I keep thinking, the above overclock or the phenom 965.
I don't do video editting and the build would be for gaming, the only drawback the 965 has is the 125 tdp.

Unlocking the 960T will kick the TDP to 125w easy.

But if you want a 95w proc, a 960T clocked at 3.6-3.8 will do just fine, and I can do that on stock voltages, so I assume you can.

I would get the 960T and the Asus M5A99X-Evo - each is going for roughly $110 right now. I have both and my 960T easily OC'd to 4.15GHz on the CPU and I got the NB to 3.1GHz! I couldn't be happier with either, and I got there on air.

The Thuban (960T) will OC very nicely, use less power than the Deneb (965), and will be able to push the NB further - which is the real bottleneck on AMD processors. The board is well laid out and very high quality, it has digital VRM's that never even begin to get warm at heavy overclocks with my 960T.

i thought you were concerned that that mobo will limit you. get the 960T and just leave it locked (if it unlocks) till you get a good cooler.
