Overclock Micro-ATX motherboard - Page 2

post #11 of 65
Might want to look into a different PSU. 420 Thermaltake ain't gonna cut it.... Thermaltake ain't the best for PSUs. What is your budget for all the parts?

This is what I can get with decent components:

Case: COOLER MASTER RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX $39.99

MoBo: BIOSTAR TForce965PT Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express $104.99

PSU: HIPRO TOP-500P5 ATX V2.01 500W $36.50

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz LGA 775 $181.00

RAM: GeIL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) $92.99

Total: $455.47 + shipping

Plus you need a cooler....

However, I don't see it go any cheaper than this for a good, basic Core 2 Duo rig that you want to overclock. And trust me, with an overclock E6300, you DO want DDR2 667, and preferably even DDR2 800.

Thanks for taking the time to do that Chozart!

How hard is it to overclock the TForce965PT? The website doesnt really have a lot on it. Any reviews here or somewhere else that shows it overclocked?

The Pook has experience with the board and likes it better than the S3 and P5B (vanilla I assume). That's a pretty bold statement! Knowing him, it's also a true statement, so I am pretty confident it's a good overclocker.

I'm taking out my old one in my MCE PC. Its a eVGA Geforce 128 meg 6600. It will do him for just using Photoshop and the sneaking of Halo or something on the side if he gets bored.
