Nubiddy Question: This a good OC/Gaming board?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, thread name sums it about up lol, just looking for some confirmation if this would be a good gaming/overclocking AMD board for its price range? (rebuilding system atm)

I've looked at a few reviews etc, and it looked good, but it was just mostly benchmarks, felt a bit stupid makin a whole thread for this, but its either this or sift through the shÃ*te from google. Thanks alot for any feedback chaps

Thanks for the reply man, straight to the point, i like it, +1 Thanks.

Edit: suppose il provide a bit more info if anyone else either has this board or knows it etc, thanks.

CPU: Phenom II x4 955 BE -> hopeful for 3.8+
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 cas9 -> tighten timings
GPU: Sapphire 6950 2GB -> Won't be unlocking, just an old fashioned OC.
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB 64MB Cache, 7200rpm
REQ RES: 1080p (max game settings)

Don't think il bother change the PSU, and im keeping current water cooling and seeing if its adequate for the new cpu before i deside to change or not.

The board is very nice. It has good VRM/MOFSET(Things to the left of the CPU) quality which is a must when overclocking. You'll definitely be able to get to 3.8+ (assuming your chip doesn't super suck)

EDIT: Like the guy said above the board is Asus. Asus boards are good when overclocking because they have a built in feature to protect the VRM's/MOFSETs if they ever get too hot(they shouldn't with this board). But if they ever do, the board shuts down to protect itself so you don't end up with a blown motherboard.
