Which one of these motherboards is the best for overclocking? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'd avoid Asus just now. Their bioses aren't great at the moment. I have the same CPU and RAM and the stock bios wouldnt even recognise my RAM in two of the slots, people are also having issues with adaptive voltage sending far too much voltage to the CPU. The latest bios wouldnt even work for me, I had to use the 2nd latest to get my system stable. As things are right now I'd get the UD3. (I was going to get it but I got a good deal on the pro gaming).

Btw. that's not the DH3, but the HD3. The DH3 should be a bit better, shouldn't it? I still can't find information about the power phases of the DH3 and the UD3 anywhere. The UD3 is €30 extra, which would be nice to save provided they perform similarly in terms of overclocking.

lol @ most of this thread. You really can't tell how good the VRM is until you actually see the motherboard because there are four voltage rails and they are usually scattered but many times clumped together. Just try your D3H, I don't think the hardware will be a problem as long as GBT has implemented LLC and provided it in the settings. I would also grab a digital multi-meter to read the real VCOre, CPUz is a joke especially on the GBT boards, it shows crazy voltages. Be forewarned, it doesn't matter what brand you buy, but there is a reason for better quality VRM and higher cost boards, their components last longer. Want to run your OC over a few years? The VRM will take some beating.

Of the ones on your list, I think the AsRock Z170 Extreme4 + (10 phase power) may be your best bet, though I cant find any good reviews of it.
