My main problem with the mobo is that I'm not sure which ones have BIOs that support the 6 core CPU that I want to use. I was originally looking at an [ASUS M4A785T-M/CSM AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard], but if Im reading the specs correctly it doesnt have enough PCIe slots for my video+sound cards either.
As for liquid cooling, I've simply never done it before. I'm mainly looking for CPU L/C'ing, but something for the CPU plus both video cards would be nice to compare prices with. I've glanced around on Newegg, but the cooling kits they have seem to be rather flimsy and have leaking problems after a month or so.
Lastly, the PSU says it supports i7 CPUs but doesnt mention Phenom II x6's... will it still work with the CPU?
The liquid cooling and PSU will have to support the CPU being O/C'd anywhere between 3.3GHz and 3.9GHz, Video cards as high as possible with complete stability, and the RAM will likely not be O/C'ed. A mobo with easy [lol, as easy as it gets that is] O/C tools like a core unlocker and such would be nice also.
I'm an extreme software techie and know what I want, but dont know bleep about what hardware has what I want lol. I can easily put one together once I have the parts, but getting the right ones is a pain in the ass for me ^.^;; Any help would be greatly appreciated.
*changed the HDD and PSU as per advice.
