Yeah, that is what I would do.

That mobo would work, but you would need different RAM.

I'm not questioning your suggestion. I would trust you over my own decision but what is the difference in the ram. I am just curious.

The two motherboards support different RAM modules, the second one you posted supports a slower model RAM.

DDR2 is slower then DDR3, but I think you would be fine with DDR2. Here is a great look at the two different modules.

Whoops, my apologies. For some reason I thought one of the boards was DDR2.

The first Corsair's I posted were DDR3 1600. This means they had a data transfer rate of 1600 Megatransfers.

The second Corsair's I posted were DDR3 1333 meaning they had a data transfer rate of 1333 Megatransfers.

Here is an article on DDR3 if you want to read more.

It depends which mobo you are getting. Just go with the cheaper mobo and RAM, you won't notice much of a difference.

I now have it to a stable overclock at 4.0 GHz with the ram overclocked to 1680MHz. Temperatures running at about 111 degrees fahrenheit. I would like to get it up to 4.2 GHz but I have not been successful. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
