Upgrade from Biostar TA970 (8320e)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I asked this in a separate thread I made in the CPU section, but since it's a secondary question I don't expect it to get answered. tongue.gif I'm looking to upgrade from this horrid mobo.... sometimes it won't even let me in the dang bios.... when I press delete it just blinks a underline score at me forever until I restart... It was a terrible overclocker for my 8320 (gave that to my dad and bought myself the more efficient 8320e; also heard it can overclock better hopefully [crosses fingers]) I'm on a budget of 100-110... I know the better ocing boards are around 150+ but I just don't want to spend that much on a motherboard. I prefer it to be below $100 but not over 110 (shipping + tax I don't mind) I'd like to get my 8320e to about 4.2-4.5 Any thoughts? biggrin.gif

Thanks

I put a TA970 into a build with a 6350. I came away very impressed with the board, especially for the price paid ($40). Not as nice as the UD3P, but extremely, extremely competitive.

The ud3p is the best sub $100 board that is 8 phase on the vrm I've built a few systems with it and fx8 cores and all are at a minimum of 4.5 ghz with a $25 hyper 212+

No I agree, at the time I bought it. It was a very nice board for the price. (paid 45-55?) It just wouldn't let me overclock my old 8320 (might be the chips fault) even to 3.9-4.0. Now for me to even get in the bios, I have to remove my video card, and clear the cmos... too much hassle. But, like I said, at the time when I bought it, I was very impressed for the price.
