Asus M4A88T-M 880G Socket AM3

I have this motherboard & cpu which unlocked to an AMD Phenom II X4 with ease. Also overclocked to 3.5ghz just by increasing the multiplier to x17.5 in bios with no voltage increase. Awesome cpu ...

Are there any restriction on ram frequency with this CPU? What about this board, any good?

Not a bad deal at all,I bet its also possible to unlock the extra cores making it a Quad.

I have the same CPU on a Gigabyte MB:

It unlocked the cores within a few seconds - I am Prime95-ing it now, It may have a slight issue with No.3 core but will be definately a 100% 3 core,

thanks will check out the motherboards
