Yeah, I didn't take the risk of hacking my motherboard. Just in case it wouldn't work out right.

Well, I had to use the very max safe voltages for my CPU which was 1.55V. But then I wasn't able to go any further, unfortunately.


However, I recommend the motherboard. Not very futureproof (no USB3, no SATAIII) but the chipset is like 3 years old anyway.
No whatsoever problems with the installation, RAM etc. worked right out of the box.
There is a list somewhere on ASUS' website about which RAM is 100% compatible with the motherboard.

I read someone OC a 955 on the ASUS M4N75TD to 4GHz too and its only $100. What differences are their between nforce 750a and 980a? Is there a reason to pay $40 more for the M4N98TD EVO?

Afaik, nothing besides the GPU lanes I wrote earlier. It's the same chip, just revised ..

any ram rated 2000mhz or below thats ddr3 will work with the motherboard and the 980a is a NVIDIA SLI BOARD so you dont have to hack it to get true SLI!

If it can OC to 1600MHZ, then it, certainly, do OC up to 2000 MHz.


I belive it's something about the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of an OS. 32-bit doesn't register more than 3,2 GB.
Don't mind it, if you have an 64-bit OS.
