Default How's this MB for OCing

Hey guys, so i'm pretty sure my MB crapped out on me, cuz i'm gettin a lot of blue screens and sometime it can't read anything plugged into my SATA ports. Could a fried CPU cause this? I'm pretty sure it's either my CPU or MB causing the problems.

Would this MB suffice for OCing?

Newegg.com - EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

thanks, any feedback is appreciated.

Look for an Intel P45 motherboard, if you dont use SLI there is no reason to get that board.

Get a Biostar I45.

it seems a lot cheaper. these are still good boards for air cooled OCing?

I want to get a solid and stable board that will last me for a little while.

FYI i have a Q6600 which i did overclock on an evga 680i for a while, but has become unstable for the reason stated above.

you overclock w/ your dad? Thats cool
Squirtis pm nosboost300 he also has that board. I haven't had experience w/ it but it seems to be a good board. Although I expect a board in that price bracket to have alittle more features.
As stated earlier if you don't need SLI then don't get that board. If you want a nice board in the same price range an Asus P5Q-Deluxe will do you proper or if you want to save an Asus P5Q-E
