Appraisal: Biostar Tforce 965PT Mobo

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have been using this since Christmas and it gets me 3.0ghz stable OC but the problem is I do not like the power connector as it's in the middle as well as I would like RAID features. How much do you think I could sell this for and where?

I would send of coarse the Motherboard, the I/O Panel, the Manual, and with the Anti-static thing they gave me i somehow still have.

I'm looking at an open box MSI P6N Platinum and it's a temping buy for only 112 bucks.

What do you think I could sell this for? Considering they are around 105 new and overclock pretty well I was thinking maybe 75 shipped? or 70?

$60 shipped.

I had 5.
They all died.
Only one of my fault.
=\\
They aren't for longevity.

I still don't see how just 4 could die on you >.< I've had this one for 5 months and it's been fine. I just think you are too hard on boards lol.

Because I like the Plat's look with its heatpipes and everything plus wouldn't it be a better overall board than the plain P5N-E? I was also looking at the P5B-E for pretty cheap as well but I want a 650i chipset just becuase of all the good things I have heard.

I want to get the best overclock I can and P5B-E would be the best for it probably but as long as I can hit 3.0ghz still it doesn't matter too much.

So one of these then

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130081R

I guess I had my eyes set on the platinum becuase of the sick look with the heatpipes and everything plus as well as being just the "Platinum" version but I just want a new board. Which of those would you suggest? I really like the 650i chipset but still its ok.

EDIT: These open box I will probably only need to purchase an I/O panel right? I should have everything else needed. Can't I buy one off the manufacturers site or something, an I/O panel that is.

Well I dont look too much at looks when i buy a mobo but go off of reviews and performance for the most part. Those MSI boards are not that great, they make good video cards but not mobo's as of late. I would get the p5n-e since you should get the 3.0 oc and its a rather good board for that chipset. There is even a dedicated thread thats stickied in the mobo section here.

I guess I shall consider it then since Asus do have quite a name for themselves in mobo's. I guess it just caught my eye to see the "Platinum" version so cheap but the plain Asus P5N-E would be better for my money then I guess it's fine.

I will take pooks advice and try to see if I can't get the board out for 60 bucks shipped and then I will only spend 30 bucks extra on a nice board.

Would you happen to know if I can buy an I/O panel off of Asus site or get one somewhere cheap? I doubt newegg's open boxes will give me one.

they may you never know, you dont really need one, I would wait to see if it comes with it or not. Other then that look on ebay, ask around here, contact asus all options

Like I said I would guess 60-65 shipped as it's in good condition and I've never really raised any voltage much aside from memory and that way I could buy an open box P5N-E and get an I/O panel somewhere and then sell the board to make it in the end only paying 35 bucks more for a P5N-E
