Default Re: New CPU - Strange Problems

The FSB only goes up to 1066. That's not that great for overclocking. You want at least 1333 and above. See if you can overclock it. If not, I would start looking at a new board if you want to overclock, or even run at regular speed.

Cheap, but insanely nice.

If you want to stick with an ASUS board.
