Well my computer has been having a lot of trouble ever since i had put in my dual core 4400+.(i have the 1.v of the mobo and i don't think its optimal for dual core, its not even listen on their website for dual core) I don't know if it is motherboard related but my memory had errors. my video card did also. My Overclock is not where I want it to be and my system locks up randomly. So i am on a hunt for a new motherboard. I am open to any suggestion as long as it is Socket 939. Thanks so much

Don't cheap out on this. Get a DFI LanParty. They have proven countless times over that they are the best stability and performance-wise.<br><br>
I got myself a LP Expert and it was a damned good upgrade from my faulty Asus A8N Premium.

DFI Lanparty nF4 UT-Ultra D... Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe, that should get you started. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

The Neo4-F is known to be a decent overclocker, have you looked at flashing your bios to a newer version. There may have been some bios updates for dual-core support and such that they have not bothered to update their specifications to represent. Maybe give that a go and see if you can get this ironed out without having to shell out money for a new board.

I second the DFI Lanparty nF4 UT-Ultra D, seriously kicks ass. These are wonderful boards for overclocking. I really wish I had gone DFI instead of MSI as this board is severely lacking for overclocking....

What sort of ram do you have. The DFI Lan Party board is very picky about the components it gets partnered with so if you have Corsair or cheapish RAM you should probably go for the Asus A8n32SLI.

Sorry to rub it in, but DFI Lanparty again.<br />
<br />
Before I had mine, DFI had a mysterious reputation that I was worried about.<br />
What a fool I was, I could have had one a year or two earlier!<br />
No regrets.<img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

My NEO4 Platinum got my 3200+ Venice (Stock 2.0) to 2.6 GHz stable, and it seemed to only thing holding it back was that the FSB topped out at 325 (not really an issue) and the temps got high, but a mobo can't help that.<br />
<br />
But, I owuld still give a second vote for an Ultra-D

i think either one really, i had no problems with the sli-d and i heard that the expert was really good but never got to try it out (i ordered one whne it first came out and it killed itself on its first post which was isolated incident)<br><br>
anyways i think its mainly how much money do you want to spend for the extra little differences between the boards

The <a href="http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813131517" target="_blank">Asus a8n-SLi Deluxe</a> is AWSOME, im running my 3200 at 2.4ghz and gunna push it close to 2.6 this week.<br><br>
It has lots of features, lots of ports, and a extra power requirment when running Sli to make it perfectly stable.<br><br>
It also comes with a ton of acessories: when it came in i lifted the box and was like, *** i only ordered a mobo...<br><br>
I almost went with the boards the other guys are recomending but i heard they dont like Corsair RAM and they are overpriced in my opinion =\\<br><br>
Goodluck<br>

First of all, the RAM and the PCIe X16 slot placement, and the DFI expert has more bios overclocking options.
