    Exclamation Is the mainboard sth to do with GPU OC ?

    6600gt, 500/900 default, OC 550/1050 stable now with the temperature 67 Degree (BTW: is this to high?), MSI 6570 was not good that even I cannot OC my 2500+ to 3200+ in stable, so if I OC the GPU to 550/1100, then it cannot get through 3Dmark 03, I wanna change the mainboard to Abit AN7, is that make sense ?

    I appreciate the language barrier, but full sentances are always an aid in helping readers understand the problem

    Are you saying that you have a 6600gt and that you have managed to get to 550/1050, but you want to get it to a higher overclock and therefore are asking if you should change the motherboard to do so?

    My answer to that would be 'no'. Overclocking is not guarenteed and it's quite normal that you should not be able to reach 1100 on the memory - the motherboard will not be holding you back significantly. Instead it's likely to be the limitations of your graphics card.

    Agree with Kalniel. Also 67C is not hot at all for a GPU.
