Looking for help finding a new 775 mobo for a q6600 for OCing.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, subject says it all. Just got a q6600 for free with 8gb of DDR2 (and a case and PSU). Basically just the motherboard is bad. Can't find one that looks like it's worth buying, really. I'm fine with it having two dimm slots as opposed to four but I'm really interested in being able to OC it to 4.0 (ish, depending on the chip itself).

Looking through what is now available on Newegg, TigerDirect, and Microcenter isn't looking too promising, especially since nobody in the reviews seems to have bought one of these boards with the intention to OC.

If anyone knows anything, or knows anyone selling an old GA-EP45-UD3P (or something equivalent) then please let me know

I guess that asking was a longshot but a guy can hope, eh?

Getting a Q6600 to 4ghz may be a longshot, but check ebay for some 780i's or another UD3P like you have in your sig

On those links there is no motherboard that would be capable of overclocking a Q6600..

And a stable 24/7 4GHz on Q6600 is not going to happen no matter what mobo you get..

Heat and high Vcore is making it impossible..

CHEERS..

Those are the only ones I could find. It's really annoying, I wish I could just get another UD3P. Love this thing. Nice taste in processor btw King

Looking for anything over 3.5 is too much for a Q6600.
The UD3P is really good though. I would grab one if you can find one.

Why not upgrade? 775 is ancient.
