New 939 mobo to OC

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ok someone is going to give me 300 dallors to upgrade my computer I cant just take and save money but spend it by next 2 weeks on anything.

So I'm going to replace my 754mobo and go get a 939 with a new video card and I'll put my own money with the remaining money for the processor and new cpu cooling (thinking a opty 165 and going to OC)

So I want to know
1.) Any Good 939 mobos out there thats great to oc??Not sure if I have a ATX case but it has a ATX micro mobo in it. Any tip on how I know what is is because I couldn't find the brand or model number on it

2.) not sure but I think the opty165 is the best price/performance out there but tell me to make sure .I'm going with a good zelman cooler.

Any other tips will help alot.

The dfi ultra D is the best for OC'ing, but doesnt come with sli.
The Asus A8n Premium is good at OC'ing but only has 1.55V so i recomment the Ultra D. Its amazing, if its a stoc mobo they usually are micro atx. Adn the case will be noticably small aswell if its micro.

Opty165 is a good choice

EDIT:

If you want SLI, NF4 SLI-DR

If you dont want SLi, NF4 Ultra-D

This should give you some ideas.

I've heard good things about DFI boards for 939s. The only thing to worry about is that DFI street is down indefinitely. That means it will be difficult to get support for your product. I'm sure everyone here at OCN will pitch in the help you, but still something to keep in mind. I've had good experiences with ASUS boards in general, but I haven't used them on a 939.

EDIT: Oh, stay away from nforce4 chipsets. They suck for OCing.

Well i got told my mobo is the 2nd best OC'er, maybe 3rd because of the 2 DFI's

Never heard anything about nf4 being that bad.

The Ultra-D is the best board there for overclocking. The nForce4 boards are great for overclocking AMD systems, just junk for intel

You can get an Utra-d and modd the chipset to sli when your ready. It's an easy pencil modd to sata2 and SLI.So you basicaly get a SLI -D for the price of a Utra-d. I've been on the dfi site for sometime now and would recommend this board but you must have a quality 480w native 24 pin PSU with 30A minimum on the 12v rail and some quality Ram Value Ram isn't going to cut it with this board.
