Asus good for overclocking? (non ROG) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
It seems to have a good heatsync in it stock, I just thought liquid would be a nice option if air flow wasn't up to par, or just for looks later.Thanks for the offer though!

Also, charlie310 how are you liking your board? It's only $20 more than the board you were going to get I'll consider it. I'm just trying to get the most for my money as I'm sure either board will serve my needs well.

EDIT: I really hate to even ask this, but has anyone tried one of these?

It seems that people are able to get quad cores at 3.6 stable, as it comes with some VRM heatsyncs, but nothing amazing. I really wath to know if ASUS is starting to put their self-protect VRM's in ASRock boards yet. I'll have to look into that. Main reason I'd really like to look into that is the UEFI in them. No more 2TB limit, and it's something I've been looking forward to for years. I'll most likely end up going ASUS, and let UEFI catch on. Hopefully then there will be a ROG mobo that has UEFI and I can have the best of both worlds.

Liquid cooling mosfets is not going to be cheap. IMO, the end result doesn't justify the costs, but, if you want to, I say go for it.

I really like my board because everything OCs well (including the IGP). The main difference between my board and the M4A88TD-V EVO is that mine supports BullDozer, crossfire x8 x8 (instead of x16 x4), and has a better IGP.

That ASRock board looks decent. IDK what you mean by 2TB limit, but I'm sure the board OCs well. I think UEFI is nice, but I really only use my BIOS for OCing. After I find the highest stable OC, I rarely use it again.

BIOS and MBR on hard drives force your max hard drive size to 2TB. It can't see anything any bigger without cheating and using a PCI adapter. Wilth EFI (or UEFI) and GPT, they can be was several billion TB's per drive max. I'll debate on it. Having BD support would be nice, but it's not needed.

EDIT: Out of nowhere, and after a day of being unplugged, and removed CMOS battery, it now boots. Started off rocky, random reboots every 2 minutes. I'll see how it holds up for now, but that's my next buy most definitely.
