Hi all,

First off, i'm not a major techy but a while back (when i had a bit of money!) i decided to build myself a PC. It's been running OK but recently its been falling over repeatedly, crashing on start-up, telling me i've overclocked it when i haven't, sometimes it won't boot at all. I suspected the motherboard from the start and a proper Technical friend of mine has just confirmed that it is the nearly definitely the cause.

So my question is, does anyone have any recommendations for a replacement motherboard for the config below? Unfortunately i can't afford to replace any of the other of the components at the moment so it has to be a straight swap for the board if at all possible. Thanks in advance for any help:

Current Board: Z-Asus Maximus Extereme ix38 - LGA775 socket

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4ghz
4GB OCZ 4GB PC3-10666 Intel Extreme Edition RAM (1333hz)
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E

Other:
Case: Cooler Master Centurion 590 Black
HD: 2 x WD 320Gb SATA
PSU: Xilence Gaming Edition 800w
Drive: LG GGC-H20L Blu-Ray/HD DVD-ROM, DVDRW SATA
Wireless Network Card + Sound Card
