    Default Overclockable motherboard

    Can anyone recommend me a cheap, VERY OVERCLOCKABLE motherboard, which supports:

    1) LGA 775 (supports Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140)
    2) 4 x DDR2 slots (i.e. max of 8GB ram)

    can they fit into a mATX case? I think my case is mATX - it measures about 40cm x 40cm x 18cm

    The P5QL-EM, P5Q-EM are MATX. The P5Q Pro, P5Q SE2, P5Q turbo, P5QL Pro, P5QL SE are ATX

    But the P5Q-EM is a G43 chipset - are there any cheap P45 mATX boards - good for overclocking? (it isn't possible to fit a ATX board in an MATX case right?

    Probably but theres also different brands of mobos. Have you checked in google yourself?

    No probably not. An ATX mobo wont fit in an MATX case

    I know about overclocking a CPU and GPU but how do you overclock a motherboard other than changing jumpers?

    Just curious.

    More recent mobos theres not a lot of jumpers for OC'ing. Probably were on old mobos, but recent ones, I think you do most of it in the BIOS

    Probably correct in so far as my BIOS will allow overclocking but to be pedantic it is NOT the motherboard that is overclocked but rather the CPU is it not? And yes you can run the RAM at a higher speed too once again in the BIOS.
