Motherboard for C2D E4400

AmpleNM

TeKky In Being
I need a motherboard for my old E4400@2.0GHz, mainly for overclocking. I have read in several forums that E4400 can be OC'd to 3.0 GHz+ with the help of required hardware.

Current MoBo: 945GZM-S2 rev-3.x
EDIT: Budget 3-4k. Should be mATX

Are you investing to get better performance or just for the sake of overclocking?

if the first is the reason then IMO dont invest. save that amount & buy a better processor mobo combo later

Asus P5G41T-M LX @3K

the mobo you suggested supports only DDr3 mem but OP has DDr2 mem - so he needs to get DDR3 mem with that mobo ;-)

@ OP - for OCing the cpu have you first need to invest in a decent cooler - even a CM Hyper TX3 will do just fine,

For the mobo get Gigabyte GA-G41M-Combo - supports boith DDr2 and DDr3 mem and price should be around ~2.5k - this combo of mobo and cpu cooler will be helpful to OC your cpu ;-)
