Which motherboard is good for Overclocking an Intel Core 2 6600? - Page 7

post #61 of 75
its good.....all the boards I picked are rather good ....its just a matter of personal preference...and apparently I am NOT an Asus fan after my experience with their P5N SLI .....I mean it couldn even OC 10% -.-....anyways the P5B is good though but not to my liking thats all......P965 chipsets are meant for allendale and you would be much better off with a 975X chipset if you going conroe

That's NVIDIA's fault, not ASUS. The chipset is the limitation, no board with a nForce chipset can overclock well.


Good choice on the P5B Deluxe, although, I wouldn't buy one from eBay, you will be happy with that board.

When it comes to Core2Duo Asus are holding the Title for best performing /Overclocking motherboards IMO.

THE Asus P5B WIFI DELUX is one i would seriously consider though.

Congrats on the choice.
The P5B-Deluxe has proven to be a fantastic OC'r for me.

During the summer months, I used to run my E6300 at 460x7 = 3.22 GHz
But now that ambient temps are low, I am pushing my E6300 to 3.605 GHz ( 515x7 ) with idle temps of 39C, on air.
I have a Thermalright Ultra-120 with a 100cfm fan ( a little noisy though, but not that big a deal ).

Previously I had a P5W -DH which is now gathering dust as I could not it its FSB past 420.
I also did a couple DS3 systems for clients with E6300's & Big Typhoons, and they could run at 480'ish FSB.

Also, forget the 4 Gigs of RAM.
Get 2 Gbytes good PC2-6400 or PC2-8000/8500.
I have OCZ PC2-8000 with 5-5-5-15 timings.

FYI:
Windows XP can only use 3 Gbytes.
( Your BIOS will see 4 but Windows only 3 )
You need Windows XP-x64 Edition to utilize > 3 Gbytes RAM.

u dont want them to send u ddr pc-3200 instead of ddr2-8500 just so they can make a fortune on u do u? thats just what ebay might do to u

and i belive... windows will reconize the ram but wont use it for anything but pagefile... i might be wrong though.. i think enterpise knows alot about this if i remember correctly.
