Wich motherboard?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A friend is looking to build this pc...
2x Intel 3.0Ghz (Quads)
16GB RAM
4TB HDD
etc

The problem is the motherboard, ram and cpu. The only motherboard I can find that will oc is the Skulltrail, but it only has 4 fb dimm slots and I can't find it anywhere-all out of stock. I can find a motherboard that has more ram slots but can't oc. I have heard about pin mods or w/e they're called but there's not much info on that and the only info on them is on older motherboards. Whenever I ask about this people tell me it's possible but no one goes into detail. Any help? The cpu need to be clocked high. THANKS.

Ther is no need for 16GB RAM .Spend your [or his] money on the best cpu and graphiocs card money can buy.that much ram is a complete waste of money.

He's a video editor...basically I'm going to build him a mac. Price needs to be under 4k. He already has a ton of software.
