Core2 975, 965, or i650/i680 motherboard

Recommended Posts

do you happen to have any LGA775 Core2 (975, 965, or i680 only) boards laying around?

 

I've got an MSI P965 Neo-F that I REALLY hate (it's a perfectly fine board, it just doesn't have any SPDIF inputs nor headers, it doesn't do SATA RAID, and it has a slightly larger than normal NB sink mount so none of my current chipset sinks fit on it...but it is a perfectly normal working board, just not the features I want).

 

The board MUST have digital (RCA or TOSLINK optical) inputs as well as outputs (if the board doesn't have digital input, it MUST at least have the SPDIF header on the board).

 

It MUST be able to do at least 2 SATA II drives in RAID-0, prefer 4 drives (prefer ICH8R over JMicron crap too)

 

Must have normal NB chipset sink mounts (either the clips or the two holes)

 

Must have at least some overclocking options (ie ability to change FSB, memory strap, NB/VTT/CPU/RAM voltages)

 

I'm really interested in a cheaper i650 SLI since I've never touched an Nvidia Intel board. Or an i680. Or another 965 (I REALLY like the 975 and 965 chipsets!)

 

 

Ok, so here's what I have to pay with...

 

1. cash...but I'd prefer to trade straight across, or trade + a small bit of cash ($25 to maybe $40...but I'm sorta not made of money anymore lol)

 

2. any number of motherboards, including this MSI 965. As I said earlier, it is a perfectly working board. Thunda and I think ExRoadie both have SSDB entries for it, and I have an SSDB entry done just not posted. Perfect board for a no-frills dude.

 

Or some DFI boards. I got just about all kinds, except I gave Tmod my very last NF4 Lanparty. Got some Infinities though (DAGF, SLI, etc).

 

Got a lot of AthlonXP and 754/939 boards (including a couple of NF3 Ultra-D 939 AGP's).

 

 

3. any other nonsense I might have that you might want. If there's something specific you are looking for, like radiator, waterblocks, maybe some RAM, whatever, I got all kinds of crap collected over the last 5+ years that I've kept like a pack rat, loathe to get rid of any of it. I'm still loathe to get rid of any of it, but I need a board for this Core2 E6400 that has all the things I require so I can get more HTPC research done (already done it all with A64 and AM2 A64).

 

 

I suppose if I have to list all the things I have to trade, it will be a pretty damn long list. But if I don't list it, you might not see something you didn't realize you wanted/needed hah. Well, maybe later as my list would take 20 minutes to read (let alone probably 2 hours to type it)

 

let me know!

You piece of crap angry... why must it overclock?!

 

What if I told you I had a really cheap multi-mediaboard that doesn't OC for trade?

 

I was looking for an LGA775 cooler for my new rig... or maybe an S939 board with a crappy cheapo-single-core-worthless-but-works-chip.

well, it don't have to overclock, but I would prefer that it had the option (since all Core2's can hit 3Ghz EASILY)

 

what kind of board you got?

i was reading the reviews at newegg (not paying attention to whether a fool had trouble with the board or not) and others verified that there's headers on this board.

 

not a single drop of overclocking though eh...not even with software? I guess it is the $200 version of Intel's P965 that overclocks, not the integrated video G965 huh?

Yup.... sigh... it'd be great for an HTPC (HTPC ONLY, no dual purpose there) or light duty workstation app... But I don't need either of those hence why I should let it go to a good home that'll use it. I've got 4 C2D boards laying about and only two C2D chips to put in them.

 

Sorry, there might be some software SOMEWHERE that OCs this PLL but I don't know it. Clockgen for sure doesn't work.
