    AMD AM3 Motherboard

    Hi,

    Looking for a good overclocking socket AM3 motherboard (they do still support the older Phenom's, right?).

    Under £100 would be good, I like Gigabyte and ASUS, will consider anything though. Just needs to have good overclocking ability. What chipsets should I be looking at? Good out of the box cooling is a plus!

    Thanks,

    Peter.

    Re: AMD AM3 Motherboard

    If you do not need Crossfire get a 770 based motherboard with the SB710 soutbridge and if you need Crossfire either get the 790X(two PCI-E 2.0 8x slots) or 790FX(two PCI-E 2.0 16x slots) with the SB750 southbridge.

    One of the following motherboards should do the job:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Asus-...SATA-3Gb-s-ATX

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Gigab...-SATA-RAID-ATX

    The first motherboard I linked to is a very good overclocker but probably needs some form of additional cooling on the VRMs.

    The second motherboard also looks very good for the money and has decent VRM cooling it seems. The third motherboard is also quite well regarded from what I have read.
