well, the cpu would just go back to stock speeds when you put it in your mobo because the settings are in his bios so you would just be buying a stock E6300, which is $215 CAD so I wouldn't do it

What kind of system do you think he is running because I want to get his hardware. He would not tell me

If you wanted a really fast processor yes, as most WILL NOT overclock this fast.

EDIT: Thats almost doubble stock speed, are you sure it's stable?

Speeds like that are harder to get on a E6300 because of the low multiplier. You have to push over 500 FSB to get that speed.

Which mobo should I get to get high overclocking speeds? I don't want 680i just to let you know. 650i would be fine.

P965. But i can tell you that he is running very high vMCH. He is running 530FSB. If you want to run that, you will need some good RAM too, that'll run DDR2-1100. ASUS P5B Deluxe with some nice Micron D9GMH will be a good deal. Now, why don't you just buy the motherboard and cpu from him? Since the memory controller is on the motherboard, it would be ideal for you to get them both.
