Looking for 3.0C (northwood, mpn BX80532PG3000D) OEM (i.e. no heat sink or fan).
Looking (perhaps) for bargain combo with AOpen AX4C Max II.

Request website references.

Heard that the 3.0C 30 cap version (whatever that means) is better than the 12
cap version for overclocking.

Request comments/opinions.

aopen's are only good for moderate overclocking, not good for extreme overclocking.

here's the general measure...if you plan to overclock to the extent of needing more than an air cooler, then the aopen motherboard is no good.

however if you plan to leave it at stock speeds then i would highly recommend aopen, they are the most solid boards i have worked with(when at stock speeds)
