    In the attempt of running my system for more than 24 hours in an extreme overclock of 10 x 300 = 3000mhz from a 2500+ (1.80 ghz) i blew my mobo... yes my heqtpipe cooled the CPU, but the Mobo just got hotter and hotter.. i never noticed... then i left and came back to molten mess of plastic... and silicon

    I used my bros comp to test and all compoinets are working, minus the mobo

    now i need another mobo...

    as stated in earlier posts i was way out of date anyway... it was a Abit-KR7A

    so very out of date bottle necking many componets... very solid, but still not enough to maintian that level of OC

    now i need a new MOBO, and i want something that will handle the following: (in list below) for instance i was running with 2x agp, with a 8x agp card ... so i need something relativly cheap that can handle it all... and OC well...

    Requirements
    barton 2500+ plus allot of oc...
    Some kind of automatic shutdown would be icing on the cake... wouldn't like this to happen again...
    AGP 8x
    3200 ddr Ram ecc 4x512 (can sacrifice some sticks, but would like to keep as many as possible...
    would like onboard features like internet etc, if effiecent would also like onboard sound...
    umm i thinks thats all...
    oh yes would like it to look nice... B)

    THANKS!!!!!

    BTW, any other Qs just ask i think i included enough, but then i have no clue...

    2 things that jump to my attention.

    2x in an 8x AGP might be hard to find.

    Support for ecc RAM also might be hard to find.

    If there is a silicon Heaven Sciman, then sitting at the right hand of your board is my ex-Radeon vid card.
