Also, can someone help me find a new AMD motherboard? I need something good, and would prefer not to do FM1 sockets. Something FM2 or AM3+ perhaps, but it has to be AMD.

ITX, mATX or ATX? I would presume either ITX or mATX

There are only 2 currently and both by AS-Rock:

The one you dont want which is an FM2. But here is one with better rating that is FM1

Yeah, I've been looking on Newegg...

What do you guys think of this combo...

ASRock A75M-ITX
AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0GHz

The reason that i didn't want to go with the FM1 board was because I can't seem to find an FM1 socketed cpu that is as fast as any of the FM2's or AM3+'s.

I do want to OC, but wasn't sure how well I could do it with this combo, and what people think I could get it up to.

I would be VERY RELUCTANT to get that AS-ROCK FM2 board with all of the issues. I would hate to see you waste money with a board on a high failure rate. If you want to go with FM1, you would be better off UNTIL a better board is designed for AMD. Word is Gigabyte is working on an ITX AMD board... That is just my 2cents.gif

Yeah... I figured if I got the FM1 board then I guess I could just upgrade down the road if something else came out. I did get another email from the seller of the back ordered motherboard, and he said he is going to look into whether or not the manufacturer is actually going to ship some boards to them.

Well Even if its FM1 at least it is something until something better and reliable comes along thumb.gif I hate to see that happen to anyone frown.gif

Yeah, I'm not going to get that FM2 board from Newegg... Just couldn't bring myself to take that chance with it. I'll wait a bit and see what the seller says, and if they can't get the board in a few weeks, then I'll just get my money back and get the FM1 set up.

I have a question about RAM though... the FM1 board says it doesn't take anything over 1333 without OC'ing. So does that mean that I would have to get a stick of 1333 to set everything up, if I planned on OC'ing the RAM speed to accept something higher like 1866 or 2400?

I'm also curious if the newer motherboards can still read the older DDR2 sticks. Cause that's what I have in my current computer.

I doubt they will be able to recognize DDR2. You can get the higher rated ram but of course it will only read what the motherboard can handle biggrin.gif BTW I did learn that by trying it hands on thumb.gif
