Hay guys I would reli like to over clock my AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core Processor but my silly Foxcon A7VMX mother board wont let me, is there some way around this, or do I need a new board, if I do need a new board what should I go for, I have a HD Radeon 4830 so the board would have to work with that, but I would like room t grow so maybe 1 with duel GRFX card slots would be use full, and again as I said room to grow I would like more ram so 4 ram slots and possibly SATA 6 and USB 3 built in would be very use full as well, if some 1 could sujest some sort of board to me I would be very happy:)

Moding makes the world go round :D

What type of Form Factor MB Can Your Case Support? Cause if your current case can do full size ATX motherboard i would recommend going that route cause there are many motherboards out there for AMD CPU's that can overclock Not very AMD motherboards have USB 3.0 and/or Sata 3. So if you want to get me back send me an email at [email protected] and I can help find you a motherboard that would suit you and maybe with free shipping and at a decent price depending on your budget. Newegg has an extremely wide variety of AMD motherboard that might suit your needs

have you tried upgrading the BIOS??

foxconn usually make motherboards for PC manufactures and therefore do not allow you to overclock much at all if anything at all...

ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte and EVGA are the motherboards you ALWAYS want to look at first.

the ones you should avoid are: FoxConn, Tyan and ASROCK. Intel boards are pretty bad too. (most of them)

:.: Intel i7 920 @ 3.8Ghz :.: 12GB Corsair XMS3 @ 1704Mhz :.: ASUS P6T V2 Deluxe :.: ASUS 5870EAH :.: 120GB Vertex 2 (OS) :.: 120GB OCZ Agility (Games) :.: 2x WD Black 2TB (Data) :.: Zalman 850w PSU :.: Lite-On Blu-Ray Burner :.: HP w2207h LCD :.:

Asus is always my first choice. Gigabyte, would probably be my second choice. MSI has plenty of great OC potential with lots of bios options. The MSI boards are really not for the casual overclocker. Those boards tend to be for people who heavily into benchmarking.
