Is this a decent motherboard for OCing? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
noo way will i ever buy an MSI. I would prefer not to blow up my PC.
Maybe i will just get a different motherboard, or not even bother with the switch...
IN real world application, would it even make a difference?

EDIT:

I think it has 2 PCI-E 16x slots, so CF/SLI would run 8x 8x which I think is better than 16x and 4x, someone correct me if im wrong.

it has two x16 slots, but the second operates at x4

Sorry I should've mentioned I was talking about the UD4.
