What is a good 478 price/overclocking mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

O.K. I know the king of 478 mobo overclockers is the asus p4p800

What is a good compromise for price and overclocking performance (best overclocker for the price)?

if youre looking to upgrade from your current system I would really still recommend an asus p4p800 or an abit, like the IC7 series. if you went with anything cheaper i dont think it would really be a worthwhile upgrade.

But I do not want to spend 70-100$ on one of those mobos.

For 50$ I could get a 478mobo with pci-express (bad overclocker altho).

I will be getting a new heatsink too (forgot to put in m first post)

P4C800e-D. equally as good as the P800, also the IC7-max is damn near the very best OCing for the 478. Abit is very often overlooked for some reason but they have great great quality/performance and price. There costumer support SUCKs. They do cross shipping eRMA's though.

I had an IC7-MAX II and it owned some serious Prescott butt. I easily maxed out my CPU and had a lot more headroom than I could use thanks to that board. It really depends on the deals you can find, sometimes you can find them for cheap, I think I sold my Abit for $75 a couple months ago.

P4P800-deluxe , they dont recognize multi's over 19. I paired mine with a 2.66ghz mobile P4, pin modded to run at 2.0ghz on a 667mhz FSB. Best damn budget rig I have ever owned.
