Decisions, decisions...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I think I've caught the bug and want to get some better gear to OC with. At the moment I've got a 965P-DS3P, E4300 and 2GB of OCZ Gold DDR800.

I'm thinking of selling that stuff now, and waiting until next month before getting a new MB/CPU.

What I'm wondering is, should I be able to get decent overclocks from my current MB with a new E6*50 processor, or should I get a motherboard that can hit higher FSB. If so, do I need better NB cooling on my DS3?

And, memory, is DDR 800 still going to cut it with these new CPUs?

Thanks

Your thinking too hard. your ram is enough too because i know those can overclock high. And your mobo isnt a bad one, but if you want new then go with the P35's.

wat is your current oc?
