Need a good, inexpensive OCing board - Page 2

post #11 of 19
P5NE-SLI FTW

WHy? 80% of the time they hit 500MHZ. My old one hit 490MHZ. Stable, great support from asus, supports any ram I know(exept kingston hyper x), 1333 bus and quad read, cheap, overclocking is EASY. Timings, vdimm, vcore, fsb, link/unlinked, pcie, PCI etc...

(139$ or around 89$ OEM on newegg) Hurry, you cannot go wrong with the P5NE-SLI.

Agreed. Plus it's slightly more future proof (even tho nothing is) due to SLI capability... 8800GTX SLI anyone?
Don't let 8x SLI lanes scare you - it's pretty much a fraud.

actually it does. being exactly the same board to the DS3 apart from the different capacitors. unless all the documentation and the little 1333mhz logo on the front of my box is a lie

people seriously under rate this board. because its cheap people tend to discount it.

Hey all you guys with the old biostar boards remember they got replaced by the new vista version and i am not sure if it holds up to the old boards. I personally didnt like the S3 that i had, the older biostar is great, the quadgt is great and on sale right now, and the p5ne or whatever it is can also be a great cheap board and running sli is one way to keep your computer acting better then what it really is.

965-S3/DS3 great boards not that good support. ASUS=great boards like the P5B and others, a little pricey but support is awesome.

EDIT:Go with the lowest cpu in the FSB and cache range cause they all go about the same like the E4300 and the E4400 about the same overclocks but higher price and multi. 800 mhz ram at the least with good timings and a good HSF should get you 3.0 at least on a E6300

Rick whats up with ur oc?? ive hit 4+ on the DS3 with the 805 why are u at 3.2 and unstable?

edit: oh it may be your PSU... on my other 805 rig i have a crappy PSU and its not stable above 3.2 as well ...get something with 1 +12v rail and at least 40 amps on the rail!
post #19 of 19
but yea be careful on the DS3 with the 805 and other processors, u will have to replace the board if u have a high oc (~4ghz) due to the cold boot issue

ive gone through 3 of them.. but hey theres a new revision out the DS3-1!
