Uh no this mobo will not support DDR2...in fact new DDR3 is actually pretty cheap if you stick within 1333Mhz which will net you the performance of top level DDR2 and give you some good entry level DDR3 with the right kit

And yes this motherboard can unlock CPU cores on CPU's that can be unlocked

Good so far. I signed up mostly hoping to find out how to OC my system with a set of step-by-step, bullet pointed instructions. Either that or with a child's picture book.

Ok so do you like the popups?

It is a possible choking hazard but i know how kids go crazy over popups these days jk

I'd chime in about overclocking but i am extremely busy with a school assignment ATM so il throw some advice in eventually

I'm really crazy 'bout some Puzzlemania.

But yeah, schoolwork first, then you can help the newbs.

I actually got my XP Pro x64 partition completed last night.

I OC'ed my 550BE x4 through Overdrive 3 to 3.737GHz on 202 x 18.5@1.4V. I ran Prime95 64-bit for about an hour on small FFTs on all 4 cores, and there seemed to be no issues...other than CPU #3 not running 12-14 tests...only 3 per cycle. It said it was passing though.

I'm scared to go much above that since I'm running a 92mm Zalman HSF and haven't limited airflow by installing the side panels yet. I am fearful what the CPU temp is hitting/will hit since when you unlock the CPU it kills the temp readouts and I can't be for sure what the CPU temp is.

I'll work on it more later. I am going to get Win 7 x64 and Kubuntu installed first.

BTW, i'm running Mushkin Blackline (?) DDR3-1600.

Try enabling ACC with O% on all cores. Reboot and go back into the BIOS and Enable +2% on core three and see if the number of tests per cycle increases. If it does but to match the other cores, Run it a bit on +2% and as long as it keeps passing keep rebooting and going to the BIOS and increasing the ACC on that same core until it matches the rest of the cores...

IIRC this is the correct process. Let me know how it goes...

Nice OC bny the way. The Ram is nice Ram as well!
