    Question Help to choose a motherboard

    Hello, I'm currently planning on buying an ASRock 970 Extreme3 for £66, I'm not really sure why though, I keep bouncing around from one mobo to another because I just don't understand what I'm looking at.

    I don't mind paying up to £80, maybe even £100 if it is really worth it.

    I plan on putting a Phenom II X6 1100T in it and overclocking it to the max (do you have a cpu cooler to recommend for this?) I will not be using SLI/crossfire just one video card. And I'll be using the case found here (which includes a fan controller): http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/c...es/z9plus.html

    So please, all of you knowledgeable people, offer me some motherboard advice. What is good about the ASRock 970 Extreme3? What's bad about it? What would you recommend over it? (and why?)

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated, I don't want to mess up my new system or bottleneck it

    Thanks
