Advice on a ASUS motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello ALL
I am currently looking for an ASUS motherboard for my Conroe E6400 to go into, i would like to overclock the cpu to possibly 3ghz with some quality ram and a Zalman CNPS7000B-CU cpu cooler.

Can anyone advise me on what ASUS motherboard, psu, memory would be my best choice for the above CPU??

Thanks in advance
Griff

Sure

250 Gb Seagate ST3250620AS Barracuda 7200.10, SATA300, 7200 rpm, 16MB Cache, 8.5 ms £53.93 Inc VAT

If you can afford it, a pair of them in RAID0 would be nice, but a single one already is quite capable.

I think PSU wise it won't get a whole lot cheaper for good quality. With some poking around, you might find other RAM, but look for at least DDR2 800.
