post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I bought a ASrock N68C-S UCC about 2 motnhs ago, and it broke while installing and no RMA so, I need help choosing a new motherboard that has:

UCC/ACC

DDR3 and DDR2 combo like some boards

Must be AM3.

Must be cheap.

Please recommend me a motherboard, thanks!

There was a short underneath the CPU socket when the CPU was in to I tok off the white thing that hold the CPU on, and one pin was broke, anyway I need a new one.

I have £45, and I'll try to get more for my 'services'

That's your only choice for DDR2 and DDR3.Why do you need both?Why not just use a DDR2 board?

The reason I went for the ASrock N68 initially was because I didn't have enough money for DDR3, so I knew I could later upgrade with DDR3.

If you can recommend me a board with DDR3 it must be cheap enough so I can also buy DDR3.

Thanks again.
