If your brother plans on overclocking later, that board will happily handle 4GHz, but I was concerned for the MOSFETs, given that they don't have a heatsink. Thankfully, the layout of the MOSFETs means its fairly easy to add one if you like.
Woah!?

My thought exactly. I never knew about overclocking until recently so I sort of regret getting this board, which is the UD3H version.
