If you're looking for a m-ATX mobo, I would highly recommend mine, Biostar 6100-393. Another great mobo is the DFI RS482, which is reported to beat the Biostar, but I don't have personal experience with it, nor have I seen it much in this community.

post #4 of 11
for the record,

dont buy cheap brand mobo's such as Biostar,ECS,Asrock,etc
they are not good for oc.

good ones are, MSI, Abit, Gigabyte,DFi, and Asus.

Biostar and Asrock are both well respected motherboard companies with boards that allow for decent overclocks. Not sure where you got that info from, but for the most part its just not correct.

i agree wif u dat they are both respectable company, however if u even thinkin of overclocking using those boards, it wont last long! i can guarantee u that. i have experience with servicing the mobos from this company, the mobo is good if u were a normal user, not overclockers!

So you're saying that my 2.6 OC is just going to go up in flames, even though I've been running it at this speed for over a year, and had it at 2.8 for over 3 months? So you're saying that even though there are about 5 forums dedicated to the Biostar TForce line and OCing that all their mobos are one day going to explode?

Watch how your are biased here. Research before you talk, and you'll find the the Biostar is one of the best OCing m-atx boards out there.

look pal, i think dat u r just a normal decent overclocker judging from ur system, wat im trying to say is that if u a pro overclocker, using dry ice to clock, clock to the max, temperatures below zero n stuff, biostar is no good at all. havent u been to overclocking competition? someone gonna laugh at u thinkin of using biostar mobo's.

I suggest not to buy biostar n other cheap brand so that our fren here could get a nice decent mobo (Abit,Msi,Asus,)for longer term period n maximum abusive test.

azfar - I'd be suprised if the OP was going to be using Dry Ice.

For the best clocks, you buy DFi - thats well known. Generally, the more expensive the board, the better it will overclock as better components have been used - some of DFi's boards are very good overclockers despite the price.

2.6 is an average overclock with an Opty - if your 'really' overclocking, your going to be looking at 2.8 - 3.0 ghz stable with an Opty, which is generally easiest with the boards which use highest quality components

Just wondering, how many people here actually use dry ice....how many people actually go to OCing comps....? I bet most people here do OCing for fun, and work around computers as a hobby, not to be a "professional" OCer.

You may be right that a Biostar can't take extreme OCing, but first of all, if someone was to do phase cooling or something of that sort, don't you think they would already know enough about OCing to pick a mobo they know is good...? Second, don't just openly say something is bad. Look at the information you're giving, and help people from there. I hate it when people just say "Get ASUS, it's the best" or "DFi will own anything" when they don't even look at what the OP originally wants.
