BIOSTAR TFORCE 550 vs 550 SE?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to finish deciding the parts on my new computer I'll be building next week. I was going to get the 550 but I noticed the 550 SE on newegg.

Should I go with the SE since it's newer? Would they be the same for overclocking?

This computer will be my first time overclocking so I'm definately still learning. If anyone knows of a better motherboard for overclocking feel free to suggest.

Thanks for any advice!

Unsure on the better OCability of the SE which has a newer OB sound chip.
Not much difference otherwise as far as the features beside the nonSE has PATA RAID where as the SE don't. Not like the PATA RAID matters much, if any. The SE touts "Vista" support... why, perhaps the new sound chip, not a clue.

From what I've seen is that the SE is less of a pain in the but to overclock then the normal version! I think the extra bucks is worth it for the SE
