If i have this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...3128384&cm_re=ga-ma790-_-13-128-384-_-Product

its a gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H. the link just gives all the details on newegg.com

Will this CPU's be compatible?
If so, which one is the best?
Also, is a six core worth the money?

I'd go with the AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE

I dont think six cores are worth it at the moment.

The black edition overclocks really easily, you just have to raise the mulitplier and maybe CPU voltage.

I have this CPU and it runs great.

So do you have that motherboard or are you thinking of buying it?

Each CPU overclocks differently even if they are the same make and model. Just remember wack a massive cooler on and then just crank up the multiplyer or FSB check the temperature and stability using Prime95 and CPUID Hardware Monitor and then see if you can go higher :D

I just put the mutiplier up to 20.

I had the cpu at 1.5v but this may vary between motherboards.

Put the northbridge speed up aswell, depending on your RAM speed, northbridge and cpu to northbridge voltage to.
