I was paging through all the stuff I plan on ordering within the next year, checking the reviews, etc. And I noticed two things;
A) The Motherboard I have on my list, while SLI (Which, after reading more about, I learned I don't need...), apparently has junk BIOS, and is reportedly problematic. It also allegedly can't overclock past 1300MHz, and I was hoping for at least 2.5GHz on an e6300. Can anyone confirm these things? If they're true, can you point me in the direction of a mobo with a better BIOS (preferably for </~$100)
2) I looked at the e6300, and the e4300, and their FSB speeds. After learning that their multipliers were locked (the e4300 at a higher one), I was wondering which would actually be the better purchase.
Yeah, after 5 pages of questions (on my part) and answers (on your guys' parts), I'm still a newbie. Go me ^.^
EDIT: Okay, some more simple math that most of you have already done, or don't care about. At the aforementioned 1300MHz cap, and the multiplier locks, you can reach ~2.268GHz on an e6300, and 2.926GHz on an e4300.
EDIT2: The math:
Proc: (M.Lock * 1300MHz) = a.bcdGHz
e6300: (~1.745)*1300MHz = ~2.268GHz(Approximately)
e4300: (2.25)*1300MHz = 2.925GHz (Exact)
EDIT the 3rd:
