Default New motherboard.

I have hit a wall with my Q6600, and I will be needing a new motherboard.
Ive tried everything. See this thread.
Q6600 Wall Was hit. - [H]ard|Forum
Reccomend me a motherboard that will allow me to overclock the fudge out of my Q6600.

Maybe your RAM is being overclocked too far.

If you had looked at the link I posted, you would have seen thats not the case.
The RAM Is underclocked, NOT overclocked.

As you can see 664 is less than 800.

975x chipset is great up to about 410mhz fsb...

X38 would probly do nicely

perhaps a P35, my roomate has his q6600 at 3.4 24/7 and its stable as ****. Too lazy to see how far you were able to get...
