GMtheBest Posted January 5, 2006 Posted January 5, 2006 I realize that this is a DFI forum so everyone will be pro DFI motherboards but I need an objective opinion. I currently have an ASUS mobo (see sig) and I am wondering if it is limiting my OC or if it is my processor. Everyone says the 3700+ SD should be able to hit 2.8Ghz on air, but I am not getting there. I am using an XP120 heatsink with 120 mm fan. My Vcore is at 1.485 (read 1.52 in CPUZ) I cannot seem to push my OC further even with the max 1.55 volts that this motherboard allows (read 1.6 in CPUZ) Temps are 44 degrees under load. It fails the prime torture test after 2 hrs @ 246 FSB I have set the memory at 1/2 divider so that is not the issue. Do guys believe that a new mobo would help me reach higher speeds or have I hit my CPU ceiling ? I do not really want to spend extra $ for no reason.
