Best Mobo for Intel Xeon x5460

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone

I'm new to overclocking. Did a lil bit of search on google and found this website

I bought this processor "Intel Xeon x5460" two weeks ago. I want to overclock it to get the best results. Can you guys please suggest me the best motherboard for this processor. I read it on some website that it could be oc to 4 ghz but I couldn't find the right motherboard to do that. I would be playing fps rpg games. I will be buying gtx 750 ti later. And plz suggest one with ddr2 ram slots but if there isn't any good one for this processor than ok.

Thanks in advance

Hello Fahadi18,
I have an Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus Mobo and it does not much like to over clock the x5460
some tests I have done have even shown that just setting the mobo to accept overclocking parameters (but nothing was changed, so it was still running at stock speed) it has problems.
if you run the mobo at standard seettings the x5460 runs great and I am able to play the games I have with no noticeable issues.
(Oh, think I have been running the x5460 for around 8 months or so.)
anyway, just thought I would let you my experience with the P5N32-E SLI Plus mobo I have.
