The Bad Axe is an exeption from that "rule", it overclocks quite well. Its up there with the other conroe boards.SC7 said:The Intel chip is way more overclockable than the AMD. The graphics card is very overclockable. The problem is you cannot overclock on an Intel board. Intel boards lock overclocking.
I do not understand this! That board is the same old one they had on the market before the core 2 duo was out. Yes it has the same chipset (and supports SLI) but so do many boards out there that are NOT considered to work with the core 2 duo.Adam Murray said:Yeah, I found this combo with the intel core 2 duo and an asus mobo for $339

That RAM is not $150. It's $185! This RAM is slightly cheaper and better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820220095Adam Murray said:pqi TURBO 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - RetaiL
