10Gauge Posted December 4, 2005 Posted December 4, 2005 Hey if anyone is into overclocking do not and I repeat do not get this board. I put a vantec VGA cooler on the northbridge which allowed me to get a whopping 300Mghtz OC. When I know the rest of my system is capable of 2.7 stable. I tried to get 2.6 and turned the ram voltage up to 2.8. And It wouldn't boot. I hit the delete key to go into the bios to make changes and it froze and restarted about 3 times before I could get into the bios. I reset the cmos and took the battery out for over two hours. Still didn't boot. It wouldn't post at that point. I just got alot of beeps and it came down to the memory modules being bad. But I tried the sticks in another rig. Now i'm running same proc and ram on an agp 939 board with a 3dfxvoodoo3. So my question is. Can I rma the board and get a diff board. Or do I have to eat it cause I only had this board for like two weeks,.. and get a better board. If you guys think the board is shot? I'm not sure if I want to overclock anymore now anyway. But I probly still would. I have 100 bucks on a tight budget and I can't wait. I need my eye candy. My 7800 won't work on this current mobo. I'm asking for your advice on a good mobo. I was thinking MSI cause they are a little bit cheaper then DFI. And I'm not sure If I wanna go SLI again. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
