hey guys im on a strict lean budget of 850$. I think with shaving off some costs I can put this BUILD together

can that MOBO OC that CPU to about 4.5/4.6? and will the cooler allow it??


also if that MOBO cant, is there a mobo for around 110-120$ that can???

With a 13phase count VRM I'd say your chances are good at reaching your goal with that motherboard. You'll definitely hear of possibilities of how you can't based off the binning of your chip. 4.5 would be fairly doable in your situation however which I see you've done a good choice in part selection.

Because I am not a big fan of OCZ power supplies see if you can scour a bit more for possibly an antec neo.

ok, I will see. my RAM that I have there will not be compatible with what i got so I will not be getting that ram but that shouldn't make a difference. i wanted to get an ASUS but I couldn't find one cheap enough that i think would be able to handle solid OC for my price range : ( : (

thank you for your reply and knowledge. I assume 4.6 is also just as doable even w that cheap but solid cooler?

How is the ram incompatible? Seems fine to me as the motherboard supports 1866mhz OC if not running the memory's XMP should be fine.

Asus is generally a premium especially if you're looking to overclock.

The cooler is fine for what you're looking for as most 100% usage temps are in the worst case scenarios but it can also depend on your ambient and overall airflow. If you're looking for another choice try the hyper212 if you can find it for around $30~; another situation you might run into is the hyper 212 plus and evo, go with whichever is cheaper as they are practically the same.
