A good mobo for a i5 2400 SB?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, thanks for taking the time to help me with this

I am looking for a decent motherboard to overclock the hell out of the CPU and for decent gaming performance.

I will have to buy the mobo from this site: www.overclockers.co.uk

Thanks for any help you can give

You aren't going to be able to overclock that processor, the multiplier is locked and BCLK overclocking isn't at all advisable.

Edit: You need a i5 2500K or i7 2600K along with a P67 motherboard to do any real overclocking. The K series processors are the ones with unlocked multipliers.
