Suggestion for New Motherboard (for AMD CPU's) and OVERCLOCK capability!!!

post #1 of 14

Hey guys, Im thinking of buying a new motherboard for AMD. I currently have Asus M2N4-SLI which is NOT good for overclocking. Can you suggest me a good mother board that is overclock capable?

Its AM2! The thing is... i've been going through alot of motherboards today and I found something interesting! I was looking at ASUS M2N32-WS Pro... it has more overclocking features. There is also pictures of bios that shows how much you can up FSB or CPU voltage etc... in the pictures it shows that CPU voltage can go upto (Max) 1.350 BUT at the bottom of the page there is a screenshot of CPU-Z showing a system being overclocked using that motherboard and when you look at the voltage, it shows 1.472v!
Im thinking there should be a way to get in advanced settings in BIOS or something to have higher voltages available for the CPU.

If any of you got an idea of this, please let me know.

If you go to this website, page for the motherboard will open. At the top right of the screen, there is a drop-down-menu (starting with Content).. choose Page 5 -Overclocking and stability and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see CPU-Z screen shot.

For AM2, you would want a motherboard with a nForce 590 Chipset.
ASUS M2N32-SLI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011
eVGA NF590
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188016
DFI LP UT 590 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136014
ASUS Crosshair
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131593
The last two, the DFI and Crosshair (expensive!) are probably the best overclockers. The eVGA is the best deal out of all four though. It depends on what you're willing to spend.

My $.02 is with the ASUS M2N32-SLI. Hell, you can even get the Vista ready one if you want to. Tons of OCing figures. I'll tell ya you can go way over 1.5V on the core and can also control voltages for a bunch of other stuff. The BIOS has advanced settings that I don't even begin to comprehend. Trust me, you can't go wrong with it. How do I know? Look below! Any questions about it just ask!

2nded.

The Vista Edition has all solid capacitors, which is the biggest + imo.

But the SLI Deluxe will be just as good OC'ing wise.

I did not have to unlock it. It might have been an older version of the BIOS. In this case I hope your mileage does NOT vary.
