Looking for Mobos..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I was going through my closet of magical surprises (aka old stuff I tossed in there and forgot about) and I found my old Celeron D 356 from '06 and Pentium 4 521 from '04, and their respective OEM machines. From what I hear these days, the Celery will OC extremely well, some people even hitting 5GHz? Well I never got to try it, and I feel left out! So, I need to find a couple LGA775 mobos that overclock well and my wallet won't suffer from.


Unimportantly, I wonder where my PC from 2008 went.. I could swear I've been upgrading every 2 years.

I ate your PC from 2008.

Seriously though, you'll need to find a board that will take those CPU's that you have. Something decent though. Probably Intel 965, P35, or P45 if possible. But you'd have to double check on the CPU support list though to make sure your CPU is supported.

Well, I was hoping someone on OCN would have had experience with either of these CPUs and could share their wisdom and advice on a decent mobo
