Help me decide plz: MSI 761GM2-V or ASUS A8N-VM-CSM - Page 2

mATX motherboards dont tend to be great overclockers, ATX normally more overclocking as there not designed for pre manufactured cases.

ATX + Cheap Case = Good OC
mATX = less oc

Plus that mATX boards nearly always have onboard video, which limits overclocking also for some reason, even if PCI buses can be locked.

The BIOS options in mATX boards are often limited, and even if overclocking functionality is complete, you'd be lucky to see anything over a 20% overclock (I've mostly seen around 15% from other members)

The Biostar TForce 6100 is a perfectly fine board, Chozart. I've used it, it's perfectly stable until about 310 HTT, then it freaks out.

In that case, we have first hand experience and what seems to be an exception
Of course, you are referring to the mATX version of that board..

Thanks

I don't think there is an ATX version. It's currently running my dad's Opty 146 at 2.6 just fine, didn't really want to push it since it's on stock cooling, but it got my Sandy to about 3 Ghz no problem.

The Biostar "TForce" 6100-939 mATX does seem to be the exception, many have done well with it. Also, I believe there are links to modded BIOS for even better results.

I have been froogling around and found these Biostar Tforce 6100's very cheap, around $65!

http://www.axiontech.com/prdt.php?item=74509

Do you think this is the way to go?
Also, as I have an OEM PC, my PSU will most probably crap out on me if I OC. It is a 250W.

In terms of getting a DFI Mobo (and a standard ATX case), I though of getting one of these:

Sandy, eh... You know, That's the CPU I wanted with that board. Sandy 3700because it i've heard OCs easier than the 3800, and it has double the cache. Also it is $10-15 cheaper.

Just crossing my fingers I get a KACAE or KAB3/QE not a KABGE or CABGE!!! And also I want to get the KACAE especially because I don't want to have to run a water cooling system, like with the CCBWE. And I am a huge AMD fan (somewhat dented by Conroe, but still) and I get a free AMD wallet if I buy it off of Newegg.

So, 3GHz was what I was hoping. Do you think that the Biostar would do that or should I go with the DFI and an ATX case. Another consideration for cases (the tigerdirect server was down last night so I couldn't post the link) is:

It comes with a 400W PSU, so nothing extra there, but the shipping (as opposed to CompUSA being local) makes up for the savings on the bundled PSU.

Bump! Do you people think I should get the Biostar mobo or the DFI with an ATX case. Is it worth the extra cash? It's like $80 more.
