Newegg.com - Scythe SCNJ-1100P 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail

AMD athlon 64 X2 3600+ brisbane core low temps 35c

i also suggest the am2 mobo

Newegg.com - DFI C51PV-M2/G Infinity Socket AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

how much have u overcloked urs, my memory is valueselect, so will i have a hard time overclocking, coz i wanna atleast get it to 3ghz.
^^get a mobo with a 590 chipset if you want to get the most out of your cpu^^
any of the am2 mobos will (supposedly) be compatible with am2+.
i can clock mine to 3++ ghz.
yes, your ddr2 533 will probably hold you back. i have to lower my ddr2 800 gskill to ddr2 533 to get good overclocks. once you get up in the fsb 300 (will take 316 x 9.5 to reach 3ghz) range....you will be pressing pretty much any (good) ram to the limit if overclocking it.

well i like the biostar coz its cheap, evga is expensive. i want a cheap mobo which overclocks well and can be used for a while. so 590 mobos take the most advantage of the X2???

yes, it will give you a higher htt than the t550, most likely. i can get my 3600 to 335+ htt.
the evga is worth the extra 40 or so dollars if you plan heavy overclocking.
