What Mobo To Use

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am looking to swap out my gigabyte mobo.....any suggestions as to a good solid board that allows me to overclock until the die melts? I am looking at the $100-$300 range.
Thanks for the help :withstupid:

I've heard many a good thing about the DFI Infinity, and Newegg (as always :P) has the Ultra Infinity for $93, although it may be crap, I've heard nothing but good about it. :)

any nForce2 Ultra based mobo is a good choice. The Abit, Epox, Asus, and DFI are all great choices. Personally, I use the Abit. I've heard so-so comments about the Epox. Some very bad stuff about the Asus, and some very good stuff about the DFI. Check them out.

The abit NF7-S is good if you want insane voltage options. Epox boards are also good overclockers-I think their top of the line board is the 8RDA3+ right now. I personally use the Shuttle AN35N Ultra, but that's actually under your price range by about $30 dollars. It lacks extras, but overall it's a good board. If you've got that much cash, I'd get a really nice heatsink plus a mobo. Or maybe even go to watercooling.

Go with DFI, some guys have been able to get the fsb up to 260/270 w/ beta bios. If you wanna oc til the die melts then there ya go! If i had some better ram id be oc'n like crazy right now but all i got is 3200 :(

Well, sorry to dissapoint you, but that ain't gonna happen, especially with an Aquarius three. I doubt you could pul 3 Ghz off with a prommie.

:withstupid: yah meant to mention that, the A2 sucked more than anything for h20 cooling, not sure how the A3 does but it cant be that much better. Good luck though your gonna have to mod the heck out of it like i did to my cooling to get good results

260mhz is NOT a problem with the infinity or lanparty boards from DFI. They're cost is reasonalbe, and thier reliablity seems to be top notch (UNLIKE asus and abit). Gigabyte's are reliable but not the best ocn' boards due to poor voltage tweaks ect. the DFI goes all the way upto 2V on the cpu and ram all the way upto 3.2v (lord knows WHY)

Its all a matter of opinion, and I see a lot of flaming on brands here which is not needed. I've had 6 Asus boards and they have all been top notch. Its' your choice on what board to get. Read some reviews and decide for yourself.

Thanks for the opions guys.....all this information will help me make a good decision on the board I get. I am working on an extreme mod for my water cooling, I bought a new beer fridge and it is sitting next to the computer.....I am thinking about intergrating it into my water cooling....as I get into it more I will post pic's for ya's........again thanks
